Four University of Wisconsin football players earned Walter Camp second-team All-American honors Thursday.

Running back Jonathan Taylor, inside linebacker T.J. Edwards, tight end Troy Fumagalli and right tackle David Edwards were all recognized with the prestigious distinction.

The Badgers tied Oklahoma for the most Walter Camp All-Americans this season, as the Sooners placed four on the first team.

Taylor ranks third nationally with 1,847 rushing yards and scored 13 touchdowns this year. Fumagalli caught 43 passes for 516 yards and four scores.

T.J. Edwards recorded 75 tackles, 11 for a loss, two sacks, four interceptions and one touchdown.

David Edwards started all 13 games and enjoyed a breakout season in 2017 after switching from tight end to tackle last year.
