Some of the top high school football recruits in the nation put on a show during the Under Armour All-American Game, but just as much excitement came off the field as it did on during the 23-17 Team Icons win over Team Legends.
Three players committed to universities during the game. Five-star linebacker Harold Perkins, four-star defensive end Omari Abor and four-star running back Jovantae Barnes all announced where they are headed for school next year.
Perkins, ranked the No, 1 linebacker in the class and No. 5 overall on the 247Sports Composite, is headed to Texas A&M. The Cypress Park (Cypress, Texas) star adds to a recruiting class that was already the No. 1 in the country entering the day. Now, the Aggies have six five-star players, 19 four-star and a trio of three-stars committed to the program.
Of the 27 players, three are considered top-10 prospects and 15 are in the top 100.
Perkins is a 6-foot-2.5, 210-pound linebacker who had 33 offers from a who’s-who of college football. Over the last two seasons, he racked up 93 tackles — 23.5 for loss — seven sacks, six QB hurries, three forced fumbles and an interception, according to SI.
