If you're not ready to accept the end of football season now that the Fiesta Bowl is in the books, you're in luck. Several future Buckeyes, and at least one potential Buckeye, will battle today in one of the biggest high school all-star games, the U.S Army All-American Bowl. And you don't have to miss any of the action, even if you're not somewhere where you can watch the game on your TV.
The offensive side of the ball will have a heavy future Buckeye flavor. Future Buckeye wideout Austin Mack will suit up as a captain for the East squad, and will be joined by Buckeye commits DeMario McCall at RB/H-Back, Jake Hausmann at tight end, and Michael Jordan at offensive tackle.
On defense, five-star defensive end Jonathon Cooper will suit up for the East, and future Buckeye punter Drue Chrisman, the nation's top rated punter, will kick footballs for the West.
The Buckeyes could pick up another commitment today as well, as blue chip wideout Donnie Corley, suiting up for the West, will make his commitment during the game, choosing between Michigan State and Ohio State. His decision will come early in the third quarter. The Spartans were thought to lead this race for a while, but late momentum has the Buckeyes feeling confident they'll land another stud wideout to pair with Mack today. Ohio State WR target Binjimen Victor is also playing for the East, but he will not be announcing his commitment today.
Major Buckeye target Jordan Fuller will also play today, but the future defensive back won't make his commitment during the game. Ohio State is in good position, but they'll be battling Michigan hard as well.
In terms of national prospects, five-star tight end Isaac Nauta (former Florida State pledge) is expected to choose Georgia but is probably the biggest announcement non-partisans are curious about. He'll announce his decision in the fourth quarter of the game. Four-star CA WRs Dylan Crawford (announcing in the first quarter) and Javon McKinley (announcing early in the fourth quarter) and big time Texas DT Ross Blaclock (announcing in the second quarter) are other announcements to watch.
You can check out the entire roster for both sides here. It's a who's who of the top rated prospects in America this year.
