The 10th Army All-American Bowl starts soon and by the time I go live with this post, the toss would have already finished. It actually starts at 1 pm and is being shown live on NBC.
The game is at Alamodome today and represents one of the last American college football gigs before the spring games roll around.
The game is a bit of an understatement because even though only five Buckeye targets are playing in the game, I think about two positively are going to declare where they will be taking their significant skills for the next three or more years.
First up is Glenville defensive back Latwan Anderson, rated the 18th best prospect nationally by Rivals. Ginn Srâ€™s kids used to be Buckeye-automatic, but Cordale Scott and others have been bucking the trend lately. Weâ€™re hearing Anderson is headed to Morgantown, but we wonâ€™t stop believing until we see the Flying WV on his dome.
Meanwhile, Sharrif Floyd, the nationâ€™s top defensive tackle prospect has been dropping cryptic hints all week. The hometown press in Philly think itâ€™s down to Ohio State and Florida, but at this point, itâ€™s anybodyâ€™s guess with the guy that seems intent on surprising people. Also in contention: North Carolina, South Carolina, Penn State, Mount Union.
Offensive lineman Seantrel Henderson, the nationâ€™s top recruit, will hit the field for the West, but isnâ€™t expected to make a decision anytime soon. Long thought to be narrowed down to Ohio State and USC, Petey heading to Seattle is great news.
St. Xâ€™s Matt James and Glennvilleâ€™s Christian Bryant, two more undecided participants, could also find their way onto the 2010 class, depending on how things break.
What do you think of the game? Who do you think will win and what is your analysis? I will post the highlights of the game once they become available online. For keeping track of the score, please post below in the comments.
