ISU’s Bibbs a Preseason All-Big XII Pick

The Big 12 Conference announced its 2014 preseason All-Big 12 team Wednesday, and Iowa State senior tight end E.J. Bibbs made the list.

A native of Chicago, Ill., Bibbs has been a unanimous preseason All-Big 12 choice by the majority of the college football publications, earning first-team honors from Athlon’s, Phil Steele, Sporting News, Lindy’s and Bleacher Report.

Bibbs was an All-Big 12 Second-Team selection in 2013 after catching 39 passes for 462 yards. Bibbs’ 39 catches was the second-most ever by a Cyclone tight end in school history. He was the only Cyclone to have multiple receptions in all 12 games a year ago.

Bibbs is on both the Mackey Award and CFPA Award watch lists for the nation’s best tight end.
