GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) -- C.J. Spiller is the Atlantic Coast Conference's player of the year.
Clemson's all-purpose threat was named Wednesday as the league's top player following a vote of 40 members of the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association.
Spiller received 29 votes to outdistance Georgia Tech quarterback Josh Nesbitt, who had eight. Rookie of the year Ryan Williams of Virginia Tech had two votes and Yellow Jackets defensive end Derrick Morgan had one.
Spiller had 24 votes in offensive player of the year balloting, while Morgan was the top defensive player with 21 votes.
Spiller led the league in all-purpose yardage, returned four kickoffs for touchdowns and scored at least once in every game while leading the Tigers to a division title.
