It's here. After a year of waiting, the 2013 Under Armour All-America Game is upon us. And as is becoming a trend under second year Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer, this game is rich with future Buckeyes.
This year's game includes 5-star defensive end Joey Bosa, 4-star cornerback Cam Burrows, 4-star WR/ATH Jalin Marshall, 4-star TE Marcus Baugh, and 4-star DB Gareon Conley. Even easier with respect to rooting interests, the quintet of verbally committed Buckeyes will all be playing together the white uniform-clad team, Team Nitro. They'll be coached former Detroit Lions/San Francisco 49ers coach (and now NFL Network analyst) Steve Mariucci.
Also worth paying attention is 4-star safety Vonn Bell. Scout's Bill Bank Greene was on 97.1 FM The Fan earlier today and said that if Bell had to commit today, he'd choose Ohio State over Alabama (long thought to be his favorite). The nation's best overall prospect, defensive lineman Robert Nkemdiche (a probable Ole Miss commit), will also be in this one.
Of course the big event is the commitment of 2014 4-star LB, Trey Johnson, who was formerly committed to Auburn. With Florida completely full at linebacker, it's almost a virtual certainty Johnson will choose Ohio State.
