A total of 146 players in NCAA Division I, 52 in Division II and 14 from the NAIA earned the honor. Additionally, 26 athletes were added to the previously-released Division III Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholars.

A recipient must also be of high moral character and be in good standing at his college or university.
