Under Armor All American Game Recap

Travis Rudolph

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) Four days before Florida State and Auburn meet for the national title, two of their top recruits teamed up Thursday night to help Team Highlight beat Team Nitro 31-21 in the Under Armor All-America Game at Tropicana Field.

Auburn commitment Sean White, from Fort Lauderdale, was selected Team Highlight's MVP, and Florida State-bound Travis Rudolph, from West Palm Beach, had a touchdown.

Another Seminoles recruit, Dalvin Cook of Miami, had a touchdown for Team Nitro.

Jeff Jones, from Minneapolis, was the MVP for Team Nitro.

New Orleans running back Leonard Fournette, widely considered the nation's top prospect, caught a touchdown pass before making his verbal commitment to LSU. Fournette, USA Today's offensive player of the year, chose the Tigers over Alabama and Texas.

Two other New Orleans-area players, defensive lineman Gerald Willis III and wide receiver Devante "Speedy" Noil, decided to go different routes. Willis committed to Florida, and Noil chose Texas A&M over LSU.

Other commitments included Washington, D.C., defensive back Jalen Tabor to Arizona; Lewisville, Texas, safety Jamal Adams to LSU; and Beaumont, Texas, defensive back Tony Brown to Alabama.
