Senior defensive end D.L. Wilhite, whose 8.5 sacks tied for second-most in the Big Ten, was named Monday to the All-Big Ten second team by conference media members.
     Willhite, a fifth-year senior from Lexington, Ky., is the first Gophers player to receive all-conference recognition since 2009, when wide receiver Eric Decker was chosen for the first team by the league's coaches. His sack total was the seventh-most in a single season by a Minnesota player, and his career total of 15.5 ranks sixth in Gopher history.
     Three other Gophers received honorable-mention recognition: Senior cornerback Michael Carter, selected by coaches and media members; plus junior defensive tackle Ra'Shede Hageman and senior cornerback Troy Stoudermire, each chosen by the media. Senior linebacker Mike Rallis was named the Minnesota winner of the league's Sportsmanship Award.
