COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Three Buckeyes earned All-American honors from the Associated Press Tuesday.

Ohio State junior linebacker Ryan Shazier was named a first-team selection by the AP while senior running back Carlos Hyde and senior tackle Jack Mewhort were named third-team picks.

Shazier, who's already garnered first-team All-American status from notably USA Today, ESPN.com and Sports Illustrated in addition to being a consensus first-team All-Big Ten selection, has notched has 134 tackles, 22.5 TFLS, 6 sacks and 4 forced fumbles through 13 games this season.

Shazier has yet to decide whether or not he'll enter the NFL draft or return for his senior season.

Hyde, who became coach Urban Meyer's first-ever 1,000-yard running back, ran for 1,408 yards and 14 touchdowns on 183 carries. Hyde was suspended for the first three games of the season for an incident at a Columbus nightclub in July.

Mewhort, who Meyer pointed to as perhaps Ohio State's chief leader, helped command an offense that averaged 46 points and 519 total yards of offense this season. The senior captain was also named a first-team All-American by ESPN.com and second-team selection by Sports Illustrated.

The No. 7-ranked Buckeyes (12-1) are set to play No. 12 Clemson in the Orange Bowl on Jan. 3 in Miami, Fla.
