Clemson Commit Added to Army

For more than 13 years, the U.S. Army All-American Bowl has been the nation's premier high school football game, serving as the preeminent launching pad for America's future college and NFL stars.

Adrian Peterson and Andrew Luck made their national debuts as U.S. Army All-Americans.

Artavis Scott of East Lake High School in Tarpon Springs, FL, has been selected to play in the 2014 U.S. Army All-American Bowl, joining an elite group of All-Americans. Those selected will play in the game on Saturday, January 4, 2014, at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.

The annual East vs. West match- up will be televised live on NBC at 1:00 p.m. EST and will feature the nation's top 90 high school football players.

"Cole and Scott are talented athletes whose leadership and teamwork qualities have made them a standout at East Lake High School," said Mark Davis, deputy assistant Secretary of the Army for Marketing. "Only the strongest wear the Army colors, and are proud to welcome all of the U.S. Army All-American Bowl players and commend each of them on their selection."

The 6-foot-0,170-pounder is rated as a Scout.com four-star prospect, the No. 25 wide receiver prospect nationally.

"Scott is a versatile talent that is a big play threat," Scout.com national recruiting analyst Jamie Newberg informed.

"While he struggles with consistency he has a knack for the spectacular, whether it's an acrobatic catch over a defender or an electric catch and run. He's explosive and can be a smaller receiver to play on the outside. He can also play in slot. This is a super talent that has great upside as a wide receiver and even more at corner, if he were to choose to play defense full time."

Scott is committed to play his college ball at Clemson.

In the 2013 NFL Draft, there were a total of 8 U.S. Army All-American Bowl Alumni drafted in the first round. The 2013 U.S. Army All-American Bowl drew a crowd of 40,133 to the Alamodome, and was the most-watched sporting event on television over the weekend, excluding the NFL playoffs.
