Georgia Bulldogs junior linebacker Jarvis Jones has been named a 2012 Consensus All-American by the NCAA.

To be selected as a Consensus All-American, a player has to be named to at least two All-American teams from among five organizations. Those five include the American Football Coaches Association, Associated Press, Football Writers Association of America, The Sporting News, and Walter Camp Football Foundation.

Jarvis has the distinct designation of being a unanimous choice by all five organizations. He was all a Consensus All-American in 2011.

Jones is the fifth UGA player to be named to the Consensus All-American more than once. He joins HB Frank Sinkwich (1941 & 1942), DB Terry Hoage (1982 & 1983), DE David Pollack (2002 & 2004), and RB Herschel Walker (1980, 1981 & 1982). Walker is the only player in SEC history to be named a consensus All-American three times.
