Every year, moreover right around this time, the staff from Blue-Grey Football hits the road on the brand’s nationwide Jersey Presentation Tour with a collection of NFL veterans and administrators.
The goal is to promote the All-American Bowl and a select few of the nation’s top prospects in the Class of 2019 are recognized in front of family and friends. The community in general, to that end.
Four games soon take place, each of them at an NFL venue, specifically Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium, Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Raymond James Stadium and Houston Texans’ NRG Stadium.
The action from the All-American Bowl will be nationally broadcast on ESPN3 or Impact Football Network (check your local listings). Similar to year’s past, the footage will be permanently archived.
The focus this time is on Deondrick Glass from Katy (TX) as the 5-foot-11 and 200-pound running back will line up for Lone Star vs. Team 49 on Jan. 14 at NRG Stadium, broadcast via ESPN3.
Glass was the nation’s No. 31 prospect at his position in the 247Sports Composite Rankings, an accurate talent indicator that takes into account evaluations of the major recruiting services.
Given his particularly lofty status, it should come as little, or no, surprise to learn that he’s one of the country’s more sought-after prospects around, with offers from nearly 25 different programs.
Obviously there is plenty of interest about where Glass will play at the next level. Alabama, Georgia, Miami, Michigan, Oklahoma State and Texas are among the final six with a chance to land a pledge.
All signs point to the Crimson Tide, Cowboys and Longhorns as the frontrunners. Truth be told, he plans to announce his commitment during halftime of the brand’s All-American Bowl. Stay tuned.
Editor’s note: Each participant in the annual game will take part in the Jersey Presentation Tour during All-American Bowl Weekend with plenty of media in attendance, on both the national and local levels.
