The annual All-American Bowl Game will kick-off this Saturday, and there are several storylines for Vol fans to follow at this year’s high school all-star game.
Tennessee has three signees on the roster for this year’s All-American Bowl Game, but only one is for sure going to participate. Four-star running back Eric Gray is the only one fully cleared to play in Saturday’s event, as four-star athlete Quavaris Crouch is questionable after suffering a minor injury during practices this week. He was held out of further practices as a precaution. Crouch is listed as a running back on the roster, but he practiced with the defense as a linebacker this week.
Four-star wide receiver Ramel Keyton made the trip to San Antonio, but he won’t be playing on Saturday and didn’t participate in practices this week as he recovers from an ankle injury that cost him the later portion of his senior season at Marietta High School.
All three of the Vols’ signees at the All-American Bowl Game are expected to be early enrollees and are expected to be in Knoxville later this upcoming week once classes start for the spring semester.
Those are the three Vol signees who are at Saturday’s event. But what about Tennessee’s targets?
Tennessee is a finalist for two players expected to make their college announcements at the All-American Bowl Game.
Five-star prospect and the No. 1 wide receiver in the 2019 class, Jadon Haselwood, is making his college decision public on Saturday. Haselwood has signed financial aid agreements with the four schools he listed as his finalists: Oklahoma, Tennessee, Georgia, and Florida State. Tennessee is considered a darkhorse for Haselwood, but most believe he’s headed to Oklahoma.
Four-star defensive end Khris Bogle is also choosing between four different schools on Saturday. The Vols are one of the four finalists for Bogle along with Miami, Alabama, and Florida. Early in Bogle’s recruitment, Tennessee had a ton of momentum and seemed to be the favorite. But now, Miami seems to be the clear front-runner, and the Hurricanes are expected to get his commitment on Saturday.
Another Big Target
Though he’s not making his college decision known on Saturday, four-star linebacker Henry To’oto’o will be at the game, though he won’t be participating.
Just like Keyton, To’oto’o will be sitting out Saturday’s game because of an injury. The talented linebacker fractured his foot in his high school’s state title game, and he didn’t participate in any practices during the week either.
To’oto’o is expected to announce his college decision on National Signing Day on February 6th. The Vols and Alabama are considered his two top teams, and both schools will be getting official visits from To’oto’o in January.
