The media’s selections for the preseason All-ACC football team were announced Wednesday, and included are three NC State players. Bradley Chubb got the nod at one of the defensive end spots, Jaylen Samuels is the first-teamer at the newly-minted “all-purpose” position, and A.J. Cole was the top vote-getter among punters.
