Oregon St.'s true freshman center Isaac Seumalo has been named to the CBS Sports/Scout.com NCAA Freshman All-America Team.

Seumalo, who is a home town boy from Corvallis, started every game at center for the 9-3 Valero Alamo Bowl bound Beavers, is 1 of 5 Pac-12 players selected, joining Washington safety Shaq Thompson, USC defensive lineman Leonard Williams, the Pac-12 Defensive Freshman of the Year, Oregon offensive lineman Tyler Johnstone, and UCLA offensive lineman Jake Brendel.

Seumalo is the first true freshman to start at center for the Beavers in 34 years, since Roger Levasa in 1978.

Seumalo is the son of Oregon St. defensive line coach Joe Seumalo, and the younger brother of starting defensive tackle Andrew Seumalo, so he has had a good preparation for his strong debut season for the Beavers, anchoring the offensive line that made a huge turnaround, which in turn helped the team go from 3-9 to 9-3, the greatest turnaround in team history.
