The accolades keep rolling in for Michigan State junior cornerback Shakur Brown. On Thursday, Brown was named as a second-team All-American selection by the Walter Camp Football Foundation.

Brown had a breakout junior year for the Spartans, recording 25 tackles, five interceptions, nine passes defended, and a coverage grade of 84.2, according to Pro Football Focus. He has since declared for the 2021 NFL Draft and looks to continue the strong lineage of Spartan cornerbacks to play in the NFL.

This is just the latest honor for Brown, who earlier this week was named to Phil Steele’s All-Big Ten second-team. Additionally, Brown was selected as a first-team All-Big Ten member by the conference’s coaches, and second-team All-Big Ten by the media. That isn’t all — Brown also earned second-team All-Big-Ten recognition from the Associated Press.

Throughout his career in East Lansing, Brown played in 26 games, amassing 54 total tackles, two tackles for loss, two sacks, seven interceptions, 16 passes defended, and one touchdown. He also returned one punt for 14 yards.

This was the 131st edition of the Walter Camp Football Foundation All-American team, which is the nation’s oldest, dating back to 1889. The Walter Camp All-America teams are selected by the head coaches and sports information directors of all Football Bowl Subdivision schools.

This is the third year in a row a Michigan State Spartan was named to the Walter Camp All-America list, as defensive end Kenny Willekes earned the honor in both 2018 and 2019.
