High School All-American Games Showcase Penn State Commits And Targets

The top high school recruits will be showcased Thursday and Saturday in high school All-American Games. The Under Armour All American Game kicks off at 6 p.m. on Thursday and the Army All-American Bowl kicks off at 1 p.m. on Saturday. Six current Penn State commits and three targets will be playing in the games.

The Under Armour All-American Game kicks will be broadcasted on ESPN2 featuring more Penn State commits and targets than the second game. Five-star wide receiver Justin Shorter and running back Ricky Slade highlight the top offensive players being showcased. Four-star wide receiver Shaquon Anderson-Butts and defensive tackle PJ Mustipher will also be playing in the game. Mustipher has been one of biggest surprises to scouts at practices this week.

Four-star defensive ends Tyreke Smith and Jayson Oweh plan on announcing their commitments during the game. Both are expected to choose between Ohio State and Penn State. Penn State’s recruiting class is in need of defensive ends, as it currently has two signees, Micah Parsons and Judge Culpepper. Coach James Franklin expects to play Parsons at the Mike position, so getting one, if not both, players would be big boosts to the already fourth-ranked recruiting class in 2018.

The Army All-American Bowl will be played in San Antonio and be broadcasted live on NBC. Top Penn State signee, Micah Parsons, highlights the rosters and has been making his force felt during practices this week.

There are two offensive tackles in this game to keep an eye on. The first tackle is current signee Nana Asiedu. Another name to follow is Rasheed Walker. Walker and Parsons have been competing against each other all week at practices, with Parsons trying to heavily recruit the four-star offensive tackle to commit to Penn State in February.
