Florida basketball center Patric Young has been named to the 2014 Capital One Academic All-America Team as announced by the committee on Thursday.

Young was selected as a third team recipient of the award, chosen by the College Sports Information Directors of America. He is the only SEC player and is one of just five major conference players to earn the honor.

Boasting a 3.37 GPA in Telecommunications, he has shown that he is dedicated to his coursework. Young is a two-time SEC Scholar Athlete of the Year (2012, 2013) and earned SEC Academic Honor Roll recognition in 2012.

Young is the seventh Gator all-time to earn the honor and the third under head coach Billy Donovan.
