By  | 

COLLEGE STATION -- Texas A&M's Dominique Kirk and Acie Law IV have been named to CollegeInsider.com's Defensive All-America Team.

Division I coaches and NBA scouts are part of the selection process for the 21-player team, but the final decision rests with the collegeinsider.com staff.

A&M is one of just three schools to place two players on the team, joining Virginia Tech and Southern Illinois.

Law also was named to the Adolph Rupp All-America team, which was announced on Tuesday by the Commonwealth Athletic Club of Kentucky. Rounding out the team were Kevin Durant (Texas), Greg Oden (Ohio State), Alando Tucker (Wisconsin) and Nick Fazekas (Nevada).

The All-American selections were made by a national selection committee consisting of over 40 present and retired sports writers, coaches, TV-radio broadcasters, and sports administrators.
