LSU running back commit Derrius Guice is an Army All-American.
The Catholic High standout announced Tuesday he has accepted an invite to participate in the prestigious U.S. Army All-American Bowl this January. The game will be played Jan. 3 in San Antonio.
"Proud to say I'll be playing in the Army All America Game," Guice tweeted.
Guice will receive his Army Bowl jersey during a ceremony at a later date, when he'll officially be added to the U.S. Army Bowl player roster. Once that happens, he'll be the third LSU commit to become an Army All-American in the 2015 class.
Long snapper Blake Ferguson and cornerback Xavier Lewis have already received their jerseys, as have in-state targets Donte Jackson and Jerry Tillery.
Guice sent LSU fans into a panic last month when he announced he was reopening his recruitment. But the four-star running back eased concerns when he said he only wanted to take visits elsewhere and had every intention of signing with the Tigers.
He attended every LSU home game this season.
Guice isn't the only LSU running back commit heading to an All-American game this winter. University Lab's Nicholas Brossette will receive his Under-Armour All-American Game jersey on Wednesday. In-state target Daylon Charlot, an Alabama commit, received his UA jersey during a ceremony on Tuesday. WR target Tyron Johnson will get his on Thursday.
LSU commits Kevin Toliver and Maea Teuhema will also play in the Under-Armour game.
