Georgia Tech guard Omoregie Uzzi was the Yellow Jackets’ sole representative on the preseason All-ACC team, released Wednesday. Uzzi, a two-time All-ACC pick, was named on 57 of 68 ballots, second most of any offensive lineman, one fewer than Clemson center Dalton Freeman.
A-back Orwin Smith, safety Isaiah Johnson, outside linebacker Jeremiah Attaochu, kicker Justin Moore and center Jay Finch were also among the top four vote-getters at their respective positions.
