?Gronkowski (top), Grigsby,

Dean and Crier

NEW YORKˇ?The Sporting News named five Wildcats to its Pac-10 All-Freshman teams today ?C Rob Gronkowski, Delashaun Dean, Colin Baxter and Nic Grigsby on offense, and Keenyn Crier as a specialist.

?

Gronkowski, who earlier this week was named a Freshman All-American by Rivals.com, and Grigsby are true freshman, while the other three redshirted the 2006 season.

?

UAˇ?s starting tight end throughout the year, Gronkowski has 26 receptions for 496 yards and five touchdowns. He could set a UA tight end receiving yardage record this week against Arizona State with 18 yards to break the mark of Mark Keel (36-513) set in 1980.

?

Dean is the Catsˇ? third-leading receiver with 34 grabs for 393 yards and a score. Baxter took over the starting left guard role in the second game and hasnˇ?t let go, playing nearly every snap since as a tough guy on the interior. Grigsby also took over the starting role part of the way through the season and has responded with a UA freshman-record 682 yards on 152 carries, plus 29 pass receptions.

?

Crier, named second-team All-America earlier this week by Rivals, is the Pac-10ˇ?s leading punter with a 43.5 yard average, and enough hang time and help from the coverage unit to give Arizona the leagueˇ?s best net punting figure at 38.1.

?

The magazine picked Washington quarterback Jake Locker as its offensive Pac-10 freshman of the year and USC defensive end Everson Griffen as the top young defender.
