Marshall University freshman cornerback DeQuan Bembry has been named to CollegeFootballNews.com's Freshman All-America Team as a first-team defense selection.

Bembry, a redshirt-freshman from Hawkinsville, Ga., finished third on the team with 80 tackles this season, including 7.5 tackles for loss. He also defended 11 passes and recorded an interception. Earlier this week, Bembry was named to the Conference USA All-Freshman team.

College Football News' Richard Cirminiello wrote that "Bembry wasted no time showing Herd fans why he was the programs prized recruit of 2007...a gifted all-around athlete who plays bigger than his size."
