For a third consecutive day, Notre Dame linebacker Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah landed on the first team of the five All-American teams that determine consensus and unanimous All-American status.

By being named a first-team All-American on Wednesday by the Football Writers Association of American, the 6-foot-2, 215-pound Owusu-Koramoah reached the consensus status, which requires three first-team selections.

The Irish rover was named a first-team All-American by The Associated Press and The Sporting News on Monday and Tuesday.

If Owusu-Koramoah receives first-team All-American recognition from the American Football Coaches Association and the Walter Camp Football Foundation, he will become a unanimous All-American.

Owusu-Koramoah became the 87th player in Notre Dame program history to become a consensus All-American. Those 87 players account for 103 selections with several players being picked in multiple years.

Cornerback Julian Love was Notre Dame’s most recent consensus All-American following the 2018 season. Offensive guard Quenton Nelson was a unanimous All-American in 2017.

The FWAA also selected Notre Dame left tackle Liam Eichenberg and safety Kyle Hamilton to its All-American first team.

It was Eichenberg’s second first-team selection following The Sporting News. He was also named to the AP’s second team. Hamilton was a third-team AP All-America selection.
