ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Redshirt freshman safety/linebacker Cameron Gordon (Detroit, Mich./Inkster) and redshirt freshman offensive tackle Taylor Lewan (Scottsdale, Ariz./Chaparral) of the University of Michigan football team were named to the CollegeFootballNews.com Freshman All-America second team on Tuesday (Dec. 14).
