Every year, moreover right around this time, the staff from Blue-Grey Football, with a collection of NFL veterans and administrators, hits the road on the brand’s nationwide Jersey Presentation Tour.
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.
Preston Wilson from Argyle (TX) is the topic of conversation, rightfully so, this time around. And rest assured, there’s plenty to talk about when it comes to the Oklahoma State commit.
The 6-foot-4 and 280-pound offensive lineman will battle down in the trenches for the West vs. East on Jan. 29 at AT&T Stadium. Once there, it’s reasonable to expect him to do particularly well.
Wilson was the nation’s No. 9 prospect at center in the 247Sports Composite Rankings, an accurate talent indicator as the tool takes into account evaluations of all the major recruiting services.
With the ball in his hands in the middle, or being physical on the edge, chances are he goes out on the field and takes care of business on Saturdays for Coach Mike Gundy and fans in Stillwater (OK).
Prior to a pledge to the Cowboys, Wilson had options, with 20-plus scholarships in place from the likes of Arizona State, Baylor, Northwestern, Texas Tech and Vanderbilt. The list goes on, and on.
Ever since his decision, however, there has been no turning back. He’ll play for the Pokes. First things first, he line up for the final time on the prep circuit in the brand’s All-American Bowl.
Editor’s note: With four games planned this year and more than 400 prospects participating, each individual will receive an official Jersey Presentation during All-American Bowl Weekend with the brand’s NFL veteran coaching staff in attendance. In addition, plenty of national and local media will be on hand for the event.
