Uncommitted Players to Watch 

Speedy Noil

With one of the most appropriate names of any college prospect, Noil will be a fun player to watch for Team Highlight.

Noil boasts excellent speed, running a 4.40 40-yard dash, and his highlight video clearly shows how dangerous he can be on the outside.

He’ll be working against good competition in guys like Jabrill Peppers and Tony Brown, but he could still have a big game in this one.

The question that’s on everyone’s mind, however, is where Noil will commit. He’s deciding between the hometown LSU Tigers and Texas A&M Aggies. He’ll announce his decision at the game, according to Deathvalleyvoice.com.

“I made my decision about a week ago,” Noil told Geaux 247. “I looked into the schools a lot, and I talked to my mom and she said choose what’s best for me. I just made the decision on my own, and nobody knows yet, not even my mother or my family. I’ll tell her when she gets down here for my decision.”

No matter where he ends up committing, Noil will be electric in the Under Armour matchup.


Adoree’ Jackson

5-star cornerback from California, Jackson will have his hands full in this game, but he should still put on a show.

Receivers like Malachi Dupre and Ermon Lane will be tough to defend, but as his highlights show, he’s up to the test.

He’s currently considering a variety of schools, with the hometown USC Trojans and Florida Gators thought of as the leaders in the clubhouse for his services.

However, he hasn’t visited either school officially, meaning that things are still up in the air. Tennessee, Florida State and LSU are all in the hunt for him as well.


Leonard Fournette

It’s impossible to discuss the All-American game without mentioning the nation’s top recruit, via 247 Sports' composite rankings, in 5-star running back Fournette.

He may be facing some stiff competition on defense, but his blend of speed and power make it evident that he’ll have no trouble in keeping up with the other players.

Fournette also plans to announce his decision at the game according to NOLA.com’s James Smith. Alabama is pursuing him fiercely, but it will likely be the local Tigers who earn his services, as Smith explains.

LSU is in a heated battle with Alabama for Fournette's services. During a recent video interview at the NOLA.com studios, Fournette spoke of his desire to play linebacker in college, which only added to the intrigue because the Crimson Tide has spoken with him about that exact possibility. The need at the running back position is great for the Tigers, while Bama already has a full backfield.

LSU running backs coach and recruiting coordinator Frank Wilson has forged a strong bond with Fournette and his family. The Tigers have made their pitch about Fournette being the face of the program and immediate playing time en route to the NFL. It may take an act of Congress to pry Fournette from LSU's grasp.

He’ll be a treat to watch in this game and should give LSU or Alabama a very solid idea of what they’re getting.

With top-flight prospects like Fournette, Jackson and Noil, the game should be well worth watching.

The event has hosted plenty of NFL draft picks in its short history, and this year should be no exception.
