Wariboko-Alali Picked For U.S. Army Game

Standout lineman Josh Wariboko-Alali of Oklahoma City (Casady School), Okla., has been selected for next year's U.S. Army All-American Game in San Antonio, the first of the major national high school all-star games for top notch recruiting prospects. The U.S. Army All-American Game still carries a lot of prestige with it and for its participants.

Wariboko-Alali is 6-3, 315 pounds and played on both sides of the ball for Casady, but most schools have him pegged as an offensive guard prospect.

He has been fairly quiet on his recruitment after an early commitment to Oklahoma, which he has had little comment on. However, his movements have been fairly easy to track and show that he is not as committed as it may seem.

He has a brother that attends Oklahoma State University and he was in attendance at a number of the Cowboys home games last season and also attended a recent Junior Day in Stillwater in January. Often when he has been at the games he has been in the company of Casady teammates, most often wide receiver Denver Johnson and safety Gary Woods Jr., who is the nephew of former Cowboys Rashaun, D'Juan, and Donovan Woods.

This past weekend Josh was with several Casady teammates and his father at a Junior Day at the University of Texas, where he received a lot of one-on-one attention from new Texas head coach Charlie Strong.

There is no word on how Wariboko-Alali felt about the trip to Austin, but it was obvious from some of those in attendance we spoke to that Texas has a strong interest in him. But that's not unusual, a lot of schools do. Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Texas alone would make any recruitment very interesting.
