Army All-American game preview

All-star game week is finally upon as players will start arriving in San Antonio, Texas for the U.S. Army All-American Bowl game on Sunday while in Orlando, players start arriving Saturday for the Under Armour All-American Bowl.

GatorCountry will preview both games but up first is the Army All-American game that will be played on Saturday January 4th at the Alamo Dome at 1 p.m. (EST) on NBC.

The Gators will be well represented in Texas with four Florida commits participating in the week of practice leading up to the game. All four will also do their part to recruit for the Gators.

Khairi Clark, Will Grier, Chris Lammons and David Sharpe will all participate but in their spare time they are sure to be recruiting the other all stars to join them in Gainesville.

Here are a few targets that these guys should be recruiting:

Defensive lineman Malik McDowell: Recently did an official visit to Florida but will tough to pull from the state of Michigan.

Linebacker Nyles Morgan: Like McDowell, Morgan also recently visited Gainesville but Notre Dame is the team in the lead with a decision coming soon.

Offensive lineman Jordan Sims: Sims is scheduled to visit Florida in January but Alabama, Auburn and Ole Miss are trying to keep the talented guard at home.

Linebacker Dwight William: If Florida wants a linebacker in the class its best chance may be with Williams who is also Adoree’ Jackson’s teammate.
