Rex Sharpe (52) made three solo tackles in the game as an outside linebacker. In high school, he normally played in the middle. Sharpe is the only one of the six AU signees in the game not planning to report to the AU campus on Sunday. He is planning to attend Butler County Community College in Kansas after falling short of freshman eligibility requirements.
Sen'Derrick Marks had the only quarterback sack for the Alabama All-Stars. He caused a fumble on the play, which set up a potential-winning touchdown, but his team turned the ball over on an interception the next play.
Jerraud Powers of Decatur High made three solo tackles with three assists as a starting cornerback. He was one of the quickest athletes on the field in Mobile.
The six Auburn signees in the game said the three-point loss to the Mississippi All-Stars was very disappointing, but each said the week-long all-star experience in Mobile was a good one, especially getting the chance to spend time with their future Auburn teammates.
