The Under Armour All-America Game features many of the top recruits in the country and kicks off Saturday at Noon on ESPN2. Many Florida State recruits and targets will be playing in the contest, and fans can weigh in on the performances in the comment section, below. Many former Florida State stars including Jameis Winston and Dalvin Cook have played in this showcase.
Be warned, this game is typically awful to watch owing to just a few days of practice killing any hope of continuity for the offensive lines or chemistry between QBs and receivers.
Most of FSU fan's attention will be focused on Team Highlight, which will be wearing white. Five-star QB Malik Henry is a solid FSU commitment and a leader of the class. From California, Henry will be enrolling early in time for spring football. CB Levonta Taylor, of Virginia, is another five-star committed to FSU, and he'll also be returning punts during the contest. Center Baveon Johnson, of Lake Gibson, will have his hands full trying to block multiple elite defensive linemen on team Armour. Tight end Naseir Upshur will be looking to snag passes from Henry. Kicker Ricky Aguayo will handle the duties for Highlight.
Targets Keith Gavin (receiver), Jauan Williams (offensive line), Dontavious Jackson (linebacker), Brandon Burton (safety) and Carlos Becker (cornerback) are also on highlight.
Team Armour features FSU punter commitment Logan Tyler, as well as targets Nate Craig-Myers (receiver), Landon Dickerson (offensive line), Keion Joyner (linebacker), Terrell Hall (defensive end), Shavar Manuel (defensive tackle) and Jayvaughn Myers (cornerback) will also be starring.
No FSU targets are scheduled to announce on TV, but that is subject to change, as Keion Joyner and Brandon Burton could elect to decide and as of Friday night a source told me that ESPN was still finalizing its TV commit announcement lineup.
