Jake Butt had an outstanding 2015 for the Michigan Wolverines. He was the Big Ten's Tight End of the Year with 51 receptions for 654 yards and three touchdowns, and was considered by many one of the best receiving tight ends in the nation.

Now Butt will cap it off by being named to the SB Nation All-America team, which is different from other All-America teams in that it is formed after bowl season.

Here's what SB Nation had to say about Butt:

Michigan improved from 5-7 to 10-3 under Jim Harbaugh despite a roster that wasn't all that different from Brady Hoke's. Nobody embodied that improvement more than Jake Butt, who went from a 21-catch, 211-yard 2014 to 51 for 654. And he's the player with a last name so great, even his head coach just loves saying it.

Butt will have a chance to add to his Wolverines legacy since he is coming back for his senior year in 2016.
