FAYETTEVILLE (ArkansasRazorbacks.com) - University of Arkansas wide receiver Cobi Hamilton was voted a third-team All-American by the Associated Press, it was announced Tuesday.

Hamilton's selection marks the third straight year a Razorback has been named an AP All-American, following punt returner/wide receiver Joe Adams last season and tight end D.J. Williams in 2010. This is the third time in school history Arkansas has had three straight years with an AP All-American and first time since 1968-70.

Hamilton, a unanimous first-team All-SEC selection by the AP last week, put together the greatest season by a receiver in Arkansas history and one of the best ever by an SEC pass catcher in 2012. He broke the Arkansas single-season records for receptions, receiving yards and 10-plus catch games as well as UA career records for receptions and 10-plus catch games. His 90 catches in 2012 broke the previous record of 66 set by Jarius Wright in 2011 and are tied for the third-highest single-season total in SEC history. Hamilton's 1,335 receiving yards broke Wright's record of 1,117 from last season and rank fourth on the SEC's single-season list. He also broke Wright's career record with 175 catches, bettering the mark of 168 put up from 2008-11, and became the first Razorback to record more than two 10-plus catch games with five. Hamilton also recorded four 100-yard receiving games in 2012, tied for third on UA's single-season list.

Hamilton leads the SEC and ranks fifth in the NCAA with his average of 111.25 receiving yards per game this season, and his average of 7.50 catches per game leads the SEC and is tied for 12th in the NCAA. Against FBS competition only, Hamilton averaged 120.2 yards per game, topping the conference and ranking fourth in the country. The Texarkana, Texas, native ended his career catching at least one pass in 34 straight games, the longest active streak in the SEC and tied for 10th-longest active in the NCAA.

Hamilton also broke the SEC single-game receiving yards record with 303 yards on 10 catches against Rutgers. His receiving yards are tied for the 16th-highest single-game total in NCAA history, and his average of 30.3 yards per catch broke the SEC record for a game with at least 10 receptions. His 303 all-purpose yards against Rutgers are the most in the SEC this season and tied for the 18th-highest single-game output in the country in 2012.
