Ahead of the start of the 2024 college football season, the Walter Camp Preseason All-American teams have been announced.

To no surprise, two current UNC Football standouts have earned a spot on the rosters.

Omarion Hampton represents North Carolina as a first-team All-American selection, as he's coming off an incredible sophomore season. The rising junior was a Walter Camp first-team All-American selection following the 2023 season and hopes to replicate that same success this time around.

Hampton became a workhorse in the Tar Heels backfield, carrying the ball 253 times for 1,504 yards and 15 touchdowns. He also impacted the passing game, hauling in 29 catches for 222 yards and an additional score.

Tight end Bryson Nesbit earned a spot on Walter Camp's Second-Team Preseason All-American squad, as he's developed into a steady presence within the Tar Heels offense. In 2023, Nesbit recorded 41 receptions for 585 yards and five touchdowns, as his production should continue to trend upward heading into his senior season on campus.

The UNC football program's offense will look slightly different this season, as Drake Maye will no longer be under center. Regardless of who wins the starting quarterback job, both Hampton and Nesbit should continue to be strong presences within the offensive system, as they should have the ball in their hands often throughout the 2024 season.

Although the quarterback situation is one that is unsettled, it's assuring to know that the Tar Heels feature some very talented skill players to help the quarterback succeed. It's a luxury to have arguably the top running back in the country as well as a elite caliber tight end (along with other notable weapons), as the Tar Heels offense should still be very good heading into the new college football campaign.
