Mesko is the 18th Wolverine to make the academic first team, and the first since Rob Renes in 1999. He graduated with a business degree in June and is currently enrolled in Michigan's sports management master's program.
Five other Big Ten players earned first-team all-academic honors: Michigan State's Blair White, Northwestern’s Zeke Markshausen and Penn State's Josh Hull, Andrew Pitz and Stefen Wisniewski.
Mesko averaged a school record 44.5 yards per punt this year.
