The US Army All-American Bowl is Saturday at noon CST, and if you love recruiting announcements, this is the game for you. The bowl game will feature 14 commitments, 7 of which are seriously considering SEC teams. Below you will find a list of who they are, and what teams they are still considering.
Click the name to jump to the live updates for that player:
Anthony Alford – This Petal, MS Quarterback seems destined to stay in-state. Currently he is still considering Ole Miss, Mississippi State, and Southern Miss. It seems that Southern Miss has the momentum to ink his signature, but don’t rule out the SEC schools just yet. Both Mullen and Freeze run a type of offense that seems to fit Alford’s skill set.
Jonathan Bullard – Bullard is a monster Defensive End from North Carolina, but it looks like he will be heading south to play football. Bullard is down to Clemson, Florida, and South Carolina. Most of the time in recruiting, it is a safe bet to pick the closest school. However, Bullard doesn’t fit that mold, because many have him favoring Florida.
Deon Bush – Bush is another top Safety in the 2012 recruiting class, and he is considering Alabama, Auburn, and Miami. I think after Landon Collins’ commitment to Bama during the Under Armour Game, it is safe to say this is a two team race. The one big factor in his decision is proximity to home. Bush is from Miami, and I think he stays at home.
Jordan Diggs – Diggs is continuing the trend of top-notch guys in ACC territory heading to the SEC to play. Diggs is from Virginia, and yet again he is another big-time Safety. He is still considering Vanderbilt, Tennessee, and South Carolina. To be quite honest, I have no idea which of the three he will pick, so I will be as shocked as anyone when he picks up a hat.
Tyriq McCord – McCord is from Tampa, FL, and he is your prototype speed-rush Defensive End. McCord is considering UGA, Miami, and South Carolina. I think his decision is really between Miami and South Carolina. If it is true that his Mom likes South Carolina, then that’s probably where he will end up.
Brian Nance – Nance is one of the top Linebackers in the country. Right now most feel that it is down to Baylor and Arkansas for Nance. Many feel that Baylor leads, and if it does, that’s still alright for Razorback fans. Nance will take his final official visit to Arkansas, so Petrino will be able to make the last impression before National Signing Day.
Barry Sanders Jr. – I know this site is all about the SEC, and I know that Sanders has all but narrowed his list down to Stanford and Oklahoma State. I just wanted to give Bama fans one more day to be linked to the name Barry Sanders. However, if he did pick Bama, it might be the greatest recruiting coup of all time.
