Four Missouri Tigers claimed a spot on the Freshman All-SEC Team announced Thursday. Trystan Castillo, Albert Okwuegbunam, Larry Rountree III and Tre Williams were all honored.

Williams, a Rock Bridge HS grad, posted four tackles for loss and three sacks this season. He recorded 16 total tackles.

Okwuegbunam set a school freshman record with 11 touchdown receptions this season. He hauled in 25 passes for 372 yards.

Rountree led Mizzou in all-purpose yards with 1,106. He rushed for 629 yards and six touchdowns while averaging 21.7 yards per kickoff return.

Castillo started all 12 games at center, the first MU freshman to do that since Evan Boehm in 2012.

The Tigers will resume practice on Friday. They'll face the Texas Longhorns in the Texas Bowl on December 27 in Houston.
