College Football Recruiting 2013: Best Recruits Playing in 2012 Shrine Bowl
The Shrine Bowl of the Carolinas is one of the most prestigious high school all-star games in the country, and it's definitely the oldest and most historic.
Every year, the Shrine Bowl features the best high school players in North and South Carolina, and this year's game will be no different.
The game will be played on December 15, 2012 at Wofford College in South Carolina.
Here are the five best recruits playing in the 2012 Shrine Bowl of the Carolinas.
Note: Full rosters found here via thestate.com
5. T.J. Logan, 4-Star RB, Northern Guilford High School (N.C.)
T.J. Logan is a 4-star athlete/all-purpose back from Greensboro, N.C., and he's committed to play football for the North Carolina Tar Heels.
He's 5'11'', 165 pounds and runs a 4.40 according to 247Sports, so he obviously has good breakaway speed and could be a home run hitter at the college level for the Tar Heels.
According to the 247Sports composite rankings, he's ranked as the No. 10 all-purpose back in the 2013 class, so he's one of the more talented recruits in the country.
Logan will be one of the premier recruits in the Shrine Game, and you can expect him to make a few big plays.
4. Ben Boulware, 4-Star LB, T.L. Hanna High School (S.C)
Ben Boulware is a 4-star inside linebacker recruit who's committed to play for the Clemson Tigers, so he's going to be a player that a lot of people will be watching in this game.
Boulware is listed at 6'1'' and 225 pounds, so he has good size for a senior coming out of high school, and he's the No. 2 player in the state of South Carolina according to ESPN Recruiting Nation.
ESPN also ranks him as the No. 3 overall inside linebacker in the class of 2013, only behind 5-star Reuben Foster and 4-star Trey Johnson, so that goes to show you how good of a recruit Boulware really is.
He'll be one of the main recruits to watch in this all-star game.
3. Tyrone Crowder, 4-Star OG, Richmond Senior High School (N.C)
Crowder is going to be a recruit that many fans will be keeping an eye on, especially those of Clemson, Georgia and North Carolina. Those are Crowder's top three schools according to 247Sports, with Clemson being the leader.
Crowder checks in at a very impressive 6'1'', 330 pounds (247Sports), so he projects to be an impact player for whichever program ends up landing his commitment.
2. Greg Gilmore, 4-Star DT, South View High School (N.C.)
In regards to the Shrine Bowl, there should be no doubt that he'll be the main defensive recruit on the field.
Gilmore has a great combination of size and speed. He's big enough to play strong against the run, but his quickness and speed will allow him to shoot the gap, get into the backfield and make plays.
That's what he'll be able to do at the college level, so I can only imagine how dominant he'll look in this all-star game.
1. Tramel Terry, 4-Star WR, Goose Creek High School (S.C.)
Tramel Terry is a 4-star receiver who has already signed to enroll with Georgia, and he's considered to be the No. 1 player in the state of South Carolina according to the 247sports Composite Rankings.
Without a doubt, Terry is the best recruit playing in this game. He's 6'0, 192 pounds and runs a quick 4.40 40 according to 247Sports.
He has great hands, tremendous athleticism and he should be a factor as a deep threat or in the slots at Georgia.
I expect he'll make an impact everywhere on the field in this game and he'll make a few really big plays on offense.
