Maye was one of four ACC freshmen named to he team. Also listed as first-team Freshman All-Americans were Virginia Tech running back Darren Evans, Florida State offensive tackle Andrew Datko, and Miami defensive tackle Marcus Forston.

Maye was one of two Clemson freshmen named first-team freshman All-American by various services this year. Mason Cloy was a first-team selection by College Football News.
