The NCAA recognized Iowa senior defensive end Adrian Clayborn as a Consensus All-American on Monday, making him the 21st Consensus All-American in Hawkeye football history, and the first since running back Shonn Greene in 2008.

Clayborn was named to both the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) and Walter Camp All-America teams following the conclusion of Iowa’s 2010 season. He was also consensus first team all-Big Ten for the second year in a row.

This season, the St. Louis native collected 51 tackles (7.5 for loss of yards), 3.5 sacks, and he forced one fumble. Clayborn is one of five Big Ten football players to be named a Consensus All-American, with Purdue’s Ryan Kerrigan, Michigan State’s Greg Jones, and Wisconsin’s Lance Kendricks and Gabe Carimi being the others.

Iowa plays No. 14 Missouri in the 2010 Insight Bowl on Dec. 28 at Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe, Ariz.
