Yesterday we took a quick look at some of the Bulldog commitments and recruits who'll be in today's Under Armour All American Bowl in St. Petersburg, which can be seen at 5 p.m. on ESPN. Today let's take a look at the guys participating in the U.S. Army All-American Game in San Antonio. As with the Under Armour Game, Bulldog commits will figure prominently.
No recruit will be more prominent than Lake City, Florida offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil, who'll wear #77 for the east squad. Tunsil has Georgia and Alabama as his leaders, and may be the biggest target left on the board. For a team trying desperately to play the same type of physical football as Alabama and LSU, Tunsil is a must-get.
Mackenzie Alexander is a talented corner/safety prospect from Imokalee, Florida who lists Rutgers as his leader, partially because he wants to play with his brother Mackenro, who may or may not also play tennis. Georgia has not offered Mackenro, but there has been some speculation that the Bulldogs might try to if they have room in the 2013 class.
Johnny O'Neal has already been the subject of a profile here at Dawg Sports and is part of a talented class of linebackers headed to Athens.
Tim Kimbrough is another one of those young linebackers, a solid inside linebacker from Indianapolis. I'm curious to see how well he plays in space tomorrow in this game, as that's one area of his game I'm a little worried about. Against the run up the middle, there are few better in this class.
Bulldog fans have been excited about Walton lineman Brandon Kublanow for a while now, and I'm curious to see what he can do against some of the big, fast defensive linemen playing in this game.
Tray Matthews has been among the leaders in putting together this class, and there's little doubt that this safety from Newnan will see the field early much like the last big time time safety prospect the 'Dawgs pulled from Newnan.
You can catch the Army All-American Bowl on Saturday at noon on NBC. Let's hope that the Bulldog contingent gives us a few more reasons to be excited about 2013. Until later....
