American Athletic 2019 All-Conference Team

Athlon projects the AAC's best for 2019

The 2019 American Athletic All-Conference team is anchored by 13 selections from UCF and Cincinnati, followed by USF at 12 and Houston, Memphis and Temple with 11. SMU, Tulsa and Tulane headline the next tier with nine selections apiece on the 2019 All-AAC squad.

 

An important note on the all-conference teams: These are based on how players will perform in 2019. Career statistics and awards matter in the evaluation, but choosing players for the 2019 all-conference team is largely based on predicting and projecting the best for the upcoming year.
