Attaochu was also named honorable mention All-American Tuesday by SI.com. Previously, the Washington (DC) product earned first-team All-ACC honors by the league's coaches.
After spending two seasons as an outside linebacker in the 3-4 scheme, Attaochu moved to defensive end in 2013 in defensive coordinator Ted Roof's 4-3.
Attaochu enters the Dec. 30th Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl tied with former Yellow Jacket Greg Gathers for the most career sacks (31.0) in school history.
Attaochu is the eighth player under sixth-year head coach Paul Johnson to earn All-American honors. He is the third defensive end under Johnson -- joining Derrick Morgan and Michael Johnson -- to be named All-American.
