Thanks The 2019 Under Armour All-America Game will be played on Thursday evening, kicking off at 6 p.m. from Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Fla. This is the 12th annual game. The game will be broadcast by ESPN2. You can stream the action here.
Over its 11-year history, the Under Armour All-America Game has produced many of football’s best collegiate and professional players. NFL Pro Bowlers like Julio Jones and A.J. Green competed in the inaugural game, while No. 1 overall NFL Draft selections like Jadeveon Clowney (2011), Jameis Winston (2012) and Myles Garrett (2014) are among the players that participated in later years. In total, 180 alumni of the Under Armour All-America Game have been selected in the NFL Draft, including 47 first-round draft picks and 21 NFL Pro Bowlers. The coaching staffs are headlined by former NFL head coach Steve Mariucci and NFL Hall of Famer Deion Sanders.
Numerous Florida State commitments and targets are set to participate in the game. Here are their teams, roster number and quick notes:
No. 5 WR Arjei Henderson – Henderson is set to announce a commitment at the end of the third quarter. The former Oregon and Oklahoma commit is expected to select Florida State. He is set to officially visit the Seminoles on January 25th. He also plans to see Florida, Georgia and Penn State in January, despite making a commitment on Thursday evening.
No. 10 DB Akeem Dent (FSU commit) – FSU commit who didn’t sign early. Alabama, Clemson, Florida, Miami and more are pursuing him. It remains unknown who, or how many, he will visit in January. He officially visited FSU in December, just before the early signing period.
No. 15 DB Kaiir Elam – Longshot target for FSU who is more heavily focused on Florida, Georgia, Miami, Ohio State and others.
No. 20 DB Travis Jay (FSU commit) – FSU commit who didn’t sign early. Alabama, Florida and Tennessee are among those involved. He is set to officially visit the Gators, Volunteers and Seminoles in January. He is expected to stick with the Seminoles.
No. 21 DB Shilo Sanders – FSU and Sanders have had a lukewarm relationship. The son of FSU legend Deion Sanders has officially visited Colorado State and South Carolina. It isn’t known at this time if he will be brought in by FSU.
No. 28 S Raymond Woodie III (FSU commit) – FSU signee who will enroll after the game.
No. 34 LB Shammond Cooper – FSU target that is set to commit prior to the start of the game at 6:02 p.m. He is expected to choose Illinois, where his former high school coach now works, on Thursday evening. Despite that pledge, FSU expects to host Cooper for an official visit the weekend of January 25th.
No. 35 LB Kalen DeLoach (FSU commit) – FSU signee.
No. 90 DT Jaquaze Sorrells – FSU target that was long ago on the radar, then off the radar, and is now back on the radar. FSU is trying to secure a January visit. At this time, he is more likely to visit Alabama, Penn State and South Carolina before making a decision around National Signing Day.
No. 2 WR George Pickens (Auburn commit) – Long-time FSU target who the Seminoles have faded with. The Auburn commitment is still looking around, but schools such as LSU and Ohio State are receiving far more focus than FSU at this time.
No. 13 RB Jerrion Ealy (Ole Miss commit) – FSU has been mentioned some with the Ole Miss commitment at Under Armour, but Ealy has no plans to visit. Running back isn’t a priority for the Seminoles in the 2019 class.
No. 14 S Brendan Gant (FSU commit) – FSU commitment who didn’t sign early. He is set to officially visit FSU, LSU and Miami before inking with the Seminoles in early February.
No. 26 WR Jonathan Mingo (Ole Miss commit) – Ole Miss pledge who is currently planning a visit to FSU before National Signing Day. He is set to see Mississippi State and Ole Miss before traveling to Tallahassee. With Henderson’s commitment, he becomes less of a necessity.
No. 43 LB Jaleel McRae (FSU commit) – FSU signee who will enroll after the game.
No. 58 OT Darnell Wright – Longshot FSU target who did not mention the Seminoles when discussing schools earlier this week. Top position of need, but Tennessee seems to be leading others such as Georgia and Ohio State, among many others.
No. 91 DT Ishmael Sopsher – Sopsher is a battle that appears likely to be focused on Alabama and LSU, but he has a long-time relationship with Odell Haggins and mentioned FSU in passing this past week. That being said, he is extremely unlikely to end up in Tallahassee.
No. 99 DT Charles Moore (Mississippi State commit) – FSU is expanding their defensive line board looking at options like Sorrells and Moore. Moore could work inside or outside. FSU has expressed some interest in the Mississippi State pledge, but they are playing catch-up to others who have put in more work hoping to flip him.
