PULLMAN, Wash. - Washington State University senior safety Deone Bucannon was named to the Preseason All-America Fourth Team by Athlon Sports Tuesday.
Bucannon was an All-Pac-12 second team selection last season after making a team-high 106 tackles, tied for second-most in the Pac-12 and was the highest total by any non-linebacker. Bucannon also made a team-best four interceptions including a two-interception performance against Oregon. The Fairfield, Calif. native posted seven double-digit tackle performances including a 17-tackle game at Arizona State.
Earlier this summer, Bucannon was named to the Preseason All-Pac-12 Second Team by both Athlon Sports and Phil Steel Magazine.
Washington State opens the 2013 season August 31 at Auburn.
