OU redshirt senior offensive lineman Erik Swenson was named to the Associated Press's All-Bowl Team on Thursday.

Swenson was the highest-graded offensive lineman in the nation during bowl season at 90.3, according to Pro Football Focus.

A former four-star prospect from Downers Grove, Illinois, Swenson didn't allow a sack during the 2020 season and started all 11 of the Sooners' games. His 81.0 pass blocking grade from Pro Football Focus was the second-highest among Oklahoma's starting offensive linemen.

Due to COVID-19, an additional year of eligibility is on the table for Swenson in 2021, but he hasn't announced whether or not he will return to OU.
