Under Armour invites UF prospects
Though most senior prospects are nearing the end of their high school football careers, a lucky few will have one more chance to shine at All-American games across the country.
Last week, Under Armour announced its All-Americans for this year and also placed the selections on teams coached by former NFL veterans Steve Mariucci and Herm Edwards.
Several Florida commitments and some top targets will play in the Jan. 4 game in St. Petersburg, Fla.
Mariucci will coach team Nitro and here are the Gators commitments and targets that are on that team:
Crete (Ill.) Crete Monee High receiver Laquon Treadwell
St. Petersburg (Fla.) Catholic running back Ryan Green
Ashburn (Va.) Briar Woods linebacker Matt Rolin
Tyrone (Ga.) Sandy Creek cornerback Shaq Wiggins
Lawrenceville (Ga.) Central Gwinnett linebacker Trey Johnson
Vienna (Ga.) Dooly County defensive tackle Montravius Adams
Edwards will coach team Highlight and here are the Gators commitments and targets that are on that team:
Seffner (Fla.) Armwood receiver Alvin Bailey
Belle Glade (Fla.) Glades Day running back Kelvin Taylor
Tampa (Fla.) Wharton cornerback Vernon Hargreaves III
Orlando (Fla.) Dr. Phillips safety Marcell Harris
Bushnell (Fla.) South Sumter safety Keanu Neal
Crescent City (Fla.) High defensive tackle Caleb Brantley
Brooklyn (N.Y.) Thomas Jefferson defensive end Ebenezer Ogundeko
Avon (Ind.) High defensive end Elijah Daniel

It’s nice to see Gator commits playing in this game. Rolin just had surgery and will not play. Maybe we get Ogundeko with an on camera commit.Looks like the Banquet got everyone in the right mood.
Andrew you indicated in the summary on the home page that there were 8 UF commits in the Under Armour All Star game but I know of only Taylor, Harris, Rolin, Bailey, Hargreaves, Brantley, and Neal. Who is the 8th? Is it one of the targets that you listed who is silent?
