Under Armour All-America Game 2014: Commitment Tracker and Recruit Highlights
Some of the nation's top recruits used the stage of the 2014 Under Armour All-America Game to announce where they will be playing college football.
Several 5-star talents announced their intentions, and there were some surprises in the mix.
Leonard Fournette, RB
LSU got its No. 1 target, as Fournette made his commitment by putting on a hat representing the Tigers. The Louisiana beast decided to stay in his native state and join the Tigers rather than go to Texas or Alabama.
Right before his announcement, Fournette had an impressive touchdown catch.
At 6'1" and 226 pounds, Fournette has great vision, instincts, quickness, speed and strength. He's among the most college-ready recruits to come out in recent memory.
Tony Brown, CB
Although he didn't play tonight due to a shoulder injury, Tony Brown still was well enough to announce his commitment. The talented cornerback picked a pink elephant representing Alabama out of a box to alert the country he was headed to Tuscaloosa. LSU lost out on another huge priority here.
Here's a shot of Brown making his decision.
Brown is a 5-star cornerback from Texas who is a 6'0" and 188 pounds. Ranked as the No. 9 overall recruit in 247Sports' composite rankings, Brown has the strength to press receivers at the line.
He also displays exceptional athleticism and speed to go along with tremendous instincts and versatility. Do not be shocked to see Brown play several different positions for 'Bama's defense.
Jalen Tabor, CB
In a shocker, Jalen Tabor chose to commit to Arizona over Alabama. This is one of the biggest upsets in recent recruiting history. Tabor has a chance to form a fabulous tandem at cornerback with 4-star Arizona commit Cameron Denson.
Here's Tabor with a Wildcats hat on during his announcement.
At 6'1" and 182 pounds, Tabor is a 5-star cornerback who combines length, size and instincts to be fantastic on the perimeter. The Washington, D.C. native also has great ball skills.
Slotted as the nation's No. 4 cornerback by 247Sports' composite rankings, Tabor should make an immediate impact in the desert.
Gerald Willis, DL
In the same manner as his Edna Karr High School (La.) teammate Speedy Noil, Gerald Willis made his announcement with gloves. However, unlike Noil, Willis' gloves had the Florida Gators' logo on it. LSU lost another great in-state prospect in Willis, while Florida just gained one of the best defensive linemen in the nation.
Here's a picture of Willis during his announcement.
Hailing from New Orleans, 5-star defensive lineman Gerald Willis is listed 275 pounds but appears to have dropped some weight this fall to increase his quickness. At 6'3", he can play on the edges at defensive end or kick inside to defensive tackle, where 247Sports' composite rankings has him at No. 4 in the country.
Jamal Adams, S
Via the attire of his eight-month-old niece, Jamal Adams announced his commitment to LSU. He may have had a baby in his hands when announcing, but there's no child's play in Adams' elite skill set at the safety position. Adams picked the Tigers over Florida.
Check out this cool shot of Adams and his niece during his announcement.
Travis Rudolph, WR
Travis Rudolph announced he is "taking his talents to Tallahassee," as he committed to Florida State by putting on a Seminoles cap. He will terrorize ACC secondaries for several seasons. Rudolph decided he will not be playing in the Iron Bowl during his college career, as he snubbed the Alabama schools.
He's already representing the 'Noles in this pic.
Among the best receivers playing in this game, Rudolph is a coveted 4-star recruit from Florida. At 6'1" and 185 pounds, the quick Sunshine State recruit is the No. 7 receiver in the country, per 247Sports' composite rankings.
Speedy Noil, ATH
In a mild surprise, Speedy Noil committed to Texas A&M while flashing a pair of neat Aggie gloves. He's going to need them in College Station, as a lot of people are going to want to shake Noil's hand during his college career. Texas A&M beat LSU for Noil, as he should make an impact early for the Aggies.
Whether it's at receiver, running back or returning kicks, 5-star athlete Speedy Noil should be good for a big play tonight. At 5'10.5" and 176 pounds, Noil is simply a blur with the ball in his hands.
From New Orleans, Noil is the No. 1 receiver in the country, according to 247Sports.
