Rachaad White impressed for the Arizona State football team this season. But his numbers evidently didn't warrant first-team All-Pac Team honors, at least according to the coaches that voted for the All-Pac-12 honors.

The All-Pac-12 selections were released on Tuesday and it didn't take long for the Arizona State football community to notice one Sun Devil player's omission from the first team.

Running back Rachaad White was a second-team selection, along with UCLA running back Zach Charbonnet.

The first team selections at the position were Oregon State's B.J. Baylor and Utah's Tavion Thomas.

White rushed 182 times for 1,006 yards on the season, getting 15 touchdowns on the ground. He averaged 5.5 yards per carry.

He also caught 43 passes for 456 yards and a touchdown. He averaged 10.6 yards per reception.

Baylor rushed 209 times for 1,259 yards and 13 touchdowns, averaging six yards per carry. He had six receptions for 53 yards.

Thomas rushed 186 times for 1,041 yards and 20 touchdowns, averaging 5.6 yards per carry. He had two catches for three yards.

White reacted to the snub with a one-word tweet, simply writing "Noted" along with an emoji of a pencil and paper.
