Army Bowl: What to watch for
They've saved the best for last as the Granddaddy of the the four national high school post season all-star events will take place this afternoon in San Antonio as the East & West squads square off in the Army All-American Bowl. While there are no prospects of interest to the Gator Nation on the West squad, the East squad on the other hand is loaded with Florida commits and targets.
Date: Saturday, Jan. 5, 2012 Site: Alamo Dome, San Antonio, Texas Time: 1 p.m. EST TV: NBC
GATOR FANS WILL WANT TO KEEP AN EYE ON
#24 Cornerback Mackensie Alexander - Though Florida has amped up their recruitment of the Rivals100 member, his declaration earlier this week that he once again expects whatever school he commits to to also take his brother (Mackenro Alexander) all but rules the Gators out as a possibility.
#15 Wide Receiver Ahmad Fulwood - He capped off an injury plagued senior season by hurting his shoulder in the final game of the year. Though it isn't serious enough to hinder him going forward, he will sit out the Army Bowl as a precaution.
#45 Defensive End Jason Hatcher - The Southern Cal commitment will visit Florida in January. Based on the interview he gave when he arrived in San Antonio he sounds pretty solid in his pledge to the Trojans.
#13 Linebacker Daniel McMillian - Last weekend he was named as the Florida Times Union's High School Defensive Player of the Year. Now he's been singled out as being one of the better linebackers during the week of Army Bowl practices.
#7 Cornerback Jalen Ramsey - The long time Southern Cal commit has taken an official visit to Florida and the Gators coaching staff continues to recruit him. It will be interesting to see how he performs and then compare it to how well Vernon Hargreaves III did during last night's Under Armour Bowl.
#88 Wide Receiver Demarcus Robinson - He has been one of the better wide outs during the week of practice. With him putting off his announcement, the biggest news he can hope to make during the game is to snag some big catches.
#22 Linebacker Jordan Sherit - He is sidelined with a knee injury suffered during his senior season. Fully committed to Florida, there's no news to be made here.
#19 Safety Nick Washington - He received accolades for his athletic ability during his senior season, where he made as big a difference on offense as he did defense.
#5 Defensive Back Tahaan Goodman - When he arrived in San Antonio he said during an interview that Florida was on his list and could be a visit destination.
* Demarcus Robinson: Though he was scheduled to make his final choice between Florida and Clemson today during the broadcast, he will now hold off and make it on Sunday.
