ASU's dynamic defensive tackle got some nice national recognition on Wednesday

The first half of the 2012 season has included a great many things for Arizona State junior defensive tackle Will Sutton.

Lots of sacks. Lots of tackles-for-loss. Lots of battered and bruised quarterbacks in his wake. And now, even more national recognition.

After getting just a third-team All-American spot from Phil Steele, Sports Illustrated got it right by naming Sutton as their choice for All-American first team defensive tackle.

Said Sports Illustrated quite simply:

With 8.5 sacks and 13 TFLs, Sutton has been the nation's most disruptive interior lineman.

Yep, that about sums it up perfectly.

If Sutton can keep up his dominance over a back half of the schedule that includes Oregon, USC, and Oregon State, who knows...maybe he'll start getting some Heisman consideration.
