Devin Bush Jr. is an All-American for the second time in his career. 

He is a first-teamer for the first time. 

The Michigan Wolverines’ junior captain linebacker earned first-team All-America honors from the Walter Camp Football Foundation on Thursday. Bush, who was also a Butkus and Nagurski finalist this year, was a second-team Walter Camp selection a year ago. 

Michigan senior defensive end Chase Winovich and Michigan State Spartans junior defensive end Kenny Willekes both earned second-team honors from the Camp Foundation.

The Big Ten’s defensive player of the year and a projected first-round draft choice, Bush gives Michigan a first-team All-American for a third straight season. 

Defensive tackle Maurice Hurst (The Associated Press, Sporting News) was a first-team pick a year ago — making him a consensus All-American. Jabrill Peppers (unanimous), Jourdan Lewis (consensus) and Jake Butt (consensus) all earned first-team All-America nods in 2016. 

Players can earn consensus All-American status by earning three first-team nods from the following: AP, Sporting News, Camp Foundation, the Football Writers Association of America and the American Football Coaches Association. Players can earn consensus distinction (as Hurst did a year ago) with fewer than three nods, depending on the distribution of first-team bids elsewhere at his position.
