We've been expecting it all season and it's not a surprise now, but Kemba Walker is an AP All American. The junior guard is joined by Jimmer Fredette of BYU, Nolan Smith of Duke, Jared Sullinger of Ohio St. and JaJuan Johnson of Purdue.

Walker came in fourth in the voting, receiving 51 of 65 possible votes. Fredette lead all vote-getters with 64 and if you're asking yourself how 14 people failed to vote Walker on to the team just remember that these are the same voters who bring you the AP poll each week.
