UA Preview: Team White Offense

The Under Armour All-America game has a lot of talent again this year. The white team, known as Team Blur has a lot of speed and Scout gives you a preview of their offense here.

The offensive unit for Team Blur has prospects from 14 different states and we take a look at each unit here in this preview.


Team Blur has three quarterbacks on their roster and all three have already committed to a school. One may not be as solid as the others though. Tanner Mangum appears to be locked in on BYU and Zach Kline plans to stay home at play for the California Bears, but Jameis Winston is not 100 percent committed to anyone yet.

He committed to Florida State over the summer, but the five-star signal caller out of Hueytown, Ala. has not ruled out Alabama completely just yet. LSU was in the mix as well, but they just landed a commitment from Gunner Keil (top QB in the country on Scout), so the Tigers are no longer in the race. Auburn has tried to jump in, but it appears that if anyone can take him away from the Seminoles, it would be Alabama. Winston has visited the Crimson Tide officially, so this one is not over.

Running Back

The nation's number one running back Keith Marshall will bring speed and elusiveness to this offense. He committed to Georgia live on Fox Sports early in December and he chose the Dawgs over the Clemson Tigers.

Joining Marshall in the backfield will be Wes Brown and Alex Ross. Oklahoma is the school Ross, a very strong back has committed to play college football, but Brown is still open.

Colorado, Maryland, Miami, and Vanderbilt are the four schools Brown is talking the most about right now. He has already visited Vanderbilt and visits to Maryland and Miami are set up for January as well.

Wide Receiver/Tight End

Team Blur has a good mix in the duo at tight end. Sean Price is more of a pass-catcher that can stretch the field while Colin Thompson is a physical guy lining up beside the offensive tackle that can really block. Don't overlook Thompson's hands though even if size and blocking are big strengths.

Price is currently committed to South Florida, but Arkansas will get a visit from him in January, and Oklahoma is still in the mix as well. Florida has had some coaching changes in recent weeks, but Thompson is still solid to the Gators and Will Muschamp.

At receiver, this team has a number of guys that know how to make plays.

Shaq Roland, the top prospect in South Carolina leads the way and he will take his talents to Columbia and the South Carolina Gamecocks on the next level.

Two of the best in Florida are Chris Black and Amari Cooper, both are committed to Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide of Alabama. Black is a very quick athlete who can make plays and Cooper is a bigger wideout that is best on the outside.

Two more out of the Sunshine State will be catching passes for Team Blur as well. Those two are Latroy Pittman and Avery Johnson. Pittman was an early Florida Gator commitment and he has been strong from the beginning. He is built like a defensive prospect, so he is a very physical receiver. Johnson is the younger brother of Patrick Peterson (Arizona Cardinals) and like his brother, he will be an LSU Tiger in college.

Darius Powe is coming across the country to play in this game, but he will stay in him home state to play college football. Powe is a vertical threat that is committed to California.

Cyrus Jones, Trey Griffey, and Marvin Bracy round out the receiver group for this team. Jones and Bracy are speed-demons that love to get the ball in their hands and Griffey is more of a route-runner with a long and slender body.

Offensive Line

Prospects committed to ACC, Pac 12, and SEC schools will be going to battle in the trenches for Team Blur.

On the outside at tackle will be Brock Stadnik, Jessamen Dunker, Brandon Greene, , Mike Madaras, and Joshua Garnett. The only one in this group not committed is Garnett. He is down to Notre Dame, Michigan, and Stanford. Stadnik is committed to South Carolina, Dunker is committed to Florida, Greene is committed to Alabama, Alexander is committed to LSU, and Madaras is committed to Maryland.

At guard will be Georgia commitment John Atkins and Oregon State commitment Isaac Seumalo. A guy like Garnett could get some time on the inside as well and Atkins is committed to UGA as interior defensive lineman.

The man at center will be Mississippi State commitment Devon Desper, a three-star out of Madison Central.
