Five-star SEC target Cam Akers accepts jersey for U.S. Army All-American Bowl
One of the most sought-after recruits in SEC territory will play in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.
Five-star running back Cam Akers on Wednesday accepted his jersey to the prestigious game, according to a report from 247Sports. The website’s composite rankings tab the Clinton High School product as the top prospect in Mississippi and the No. 8 overall player overall in the 2017 class.
“It’s a tremendous honor for me and my family and the town of Clinton,” Akers told 247Sports. “I went to the game in ninth grade because I was playing in the USA game. It was a dream of mine to be able to play in it.”
Akers most recently made headlines by scheduling an official visit to Alabama on Oct. 22, when the top-ranked Crimson Tide host currently unbeaten Texas A&M. He originally decommitted from Alabama in March, yet it’s one of several SEC schools — along with Tennessee, Georgia, Ole Miss and LSU — leading the way down the home stretch of his recruitment.
