PFN Preseason All-C-USA Team 2022: UTSA QB Frank Harris returns for more, takes top honor

The PFN All-C-USA Team awards the top players on both sides of the ball from the conference ahead of the 2022 college football season.

The All-C-USA Team in 2022 is headlined by a few household names after a terrific 2021 season. The UTSA Roadrunners took college football by storm with their surge to prominence and are set to continue their winning ways this fall. Presented in conjunction with our release of our College Football All-Americans, we at PFN debut our 2022 preseason All-C-USA Team, as voted on by our team of national analysts and NFL draft evaluators.

PFN’s 2022 All-C-USA Team

It’s important to note that these teams may look a bit different than the All-Conference teams listed by each individual conference. Our teams mirror our All-Americans, taking into consideration not only what a player has accomplished to date but looking forward to what we expect to see based on the growth of the athlete’s career.

UTSA is led by First-Team All-C-USA QB Frank Harris. One of the top quarterbacks across the country, Harris has etched his name into the UTSA record books in more than one place. He’s a terrific athlete but perhaps one of the country’s best leaders of his team. He has a great offensive line in front of him and one of the conference’s best receiving corps led by Zakhari Franklin. UTSA’s leader on defense also returns as Rashad Wisdom shares top safety honors with Louisiana Tech’s Beejay Williamson.

FIU returns a top target as well in Tyrese Chambers, who needed fewer than 50 receptions to cross 1,000 yards last year.

Offense | Second team

QB: Chris Reynolds, Charlotte
RB: Jermaine Brown, UAB
RB: Calvin Camp, Charlotte
WR: Smoke Harris, Louisiana Tech
WR: De’Corian Clark, UTSA
WR: Trea Shropshire, UAB
TE: Jack Bradley, Rice
FLEX: Jaylin Lane, Middle Tennessee
OT: Kadeem Telfort, UAB
G: Matthew Trehern, UAB
C: Manase Mose, North Texas
G: Panda Askew, Charlotte
OT: Joshua Mote, Louisiana Tech

Defense | Second team

EDGE: Ikenna Enechukwu, Rice
LB: Trevor Harmanson, UTSA
LB: Jaden Hunter, Western Kentucky
LB: Noah Wilder, UAB
CB: Kahlef Hailassie, Western Kentucky
CB: Teldrick Ross, Middle Tennessee
CB: Cedric Woods, Louisiana Tech
S: Grayson Cash, UAB
S: Teja Young, FAU
FLEX: Keondre Swoopes, UAB

Specialists | Second team

PK: Brayden Narveson, Western Kentucky
P: Bernardo Rodriguez, North Texas
KR: Jaylin Lane, Middle Tennessee
PR: Smoke Harris, Louisiana Tech
LS: Angelo Tejada, UTEP

UTSA’s dominance doesn’t stop at the first team as De’Corian Clark makes a terrific No. 2 target for Harris. Charlotte’s Chris Reynolds has quietly performed at an elite level for the past two seasons and should be a nationally-known name by the season’s end. It’s a new era of football for UAB with the retirement of legendary head coach Bill Clark, but their strength in the trenches indicates their players selected to the All-C-USA Team.
