Ezekiel Elliott, Evan Lisle, Johnny Townsend and Eli Apple rock the O-H-I-O in San Antonio this week
Time GAME TV INTERNET FAVORITE
1:00pm US Army All-American Bowl NBC   East (4/5 OSU commits)

The granddaddy of national high school all-star games is upon us. Full rosters here. Refer to the master schedule and players of note for other bits. Kyle is in San Antonio for the game at @KyleRowland.

The East squad (black), coached by Louisville Trinity's Bob Beatty, features four future Buckeyes:

  • DB Eli Apple (Voorhees, NJ)
  • DL Michael Hill (Pendleton, SC)
  • OL Evan Lisle (Centerville, OH)
  • P Johnny Townsend (Orlando, FL)

East also features WR James Quick (Louisville, KY), a 6-2, 180-pound burner considered to be a top-10 prospect at his position. He'll be choosing between Louisville and Ohio State this afternoon.

The West squad (yellow), coached by Cibolo Steele's Mike Jinks, features Ohio State commit Ezekiel Elliott (St. Louis, MO), who has seen time at running back and defensive back in camp this week. Linebacker Mike Mitchell (Plano, TX), a freak of an athlete and one the country's top outside linebackers, is expected to choose Ohio State today.

Anyone know the ordeer or timing of the player announcements??
 

Yes there are two Buckeyes in Ann arbor on this site!

oregonianbuckeye's picture

Saw someone from 247 tweet that both Mitchell and Quick are announcing in the 4th Quarter. Quick at the start of the 4th, Mitchell after the 3rd commerical in the 4th. Supposedly.

#17 James Quick  (announces at start of 4th quarter)
#44 Mike Mitchell  (announces after 3rd commercial in 4th quarter)

I'm holding out hope for Quick until he actually says Louisville.

I love that photo...fantastic!

I am actually looking forward to seeing Townsend punt today.  The kicking in the UAAAG was pretty bad even though the giant kicker is going to be my new favorite non-Buckeye for the next four years. 

BuckGnome's picture

How do Mitchell and Johnson compare to Anzalone and that other LB that briefly committed to tOSU in the spring?
I'm not surprised about Quick likely heading to Louisville.  Its his home town, I get it.
 

Jhesse17's picture

I will be shocked if we get Quick but Mitchell is a lock in my mind.

Our LB's are going to be filthy for years to come!!

D Line won't be too shabby either. ;-)

dubjayfootball90's picture

I was pumped last year for the AA games, but this year I am ecstatic... Kind of nervous thinking about how I am going to feel next year when we have the potential to land an ungodly amount of top prospects.....oh boy.... 

d1145fresh's picture

I think there is a legit chance that all or at least nearly all of our prospects next year are playing in an AA game. 

oregonianbuckeye's picture

Looks like Lisle, Quick, Gibson, and Townsend (obviously) are starting. Mitchell, EE, and Apple are listed as backups on the depth chart found here.

Per 247:  US Army Announcement Schedule:

Tyler Boyd is 1st quarter after second commercial. Pitt is the team to beat
http://247sports.com/Player/Tyler-Boyd-14772
Joe Mathis is start of the second quarter. Washington is the team to beat.
http://247sports.com/Player/Joe-Mathis-11296
Tony Stevens is after the third commercial in the second quarter. Texas A&M is the team to beat.

Alquadin Muhammad is after the first commercial in the third quarter. Miami is the team to beat.
http://247sports.com/Player/Alquadin-Muhammad-12630
James Quick is the start of the fourth quarter. Louisville and Ohio State are the finalists. I predicted Ohio State for months. Flipped to Louisville last night. Should I have stuck with the Buckeyes? We'll see.

Mike Mitchell is out of the third commercial in the fourth quarter. Ohio State is the team to beat.

understand that recruiting is fickel as heck but just surprising that Quick would preach OSU being his leader then suddenly switch to Louisville...not shocked if he picks UL but just interesting that he would announce that OSU is his leader and that he is announcing at the game then change over one night

Jeez it seems like they are obsessed with derrick green. lets see how he does

not fan of rivals recruiting, Farrell is more educated in this recruiting game than i am but i still believe he is an idiot

Punt fest so far.

Townsend punt has been the highlight of the game thus far.

I watched most of the UA game. I'm already fighting the urge to bail on this one.

FROMTHE18's picture

sames...sucks that the two guys we want to hear from wont be until the 4th

Shaun OSU's picture

I agree. The UA game just seemed better presented and more entertaining so far.

buckeyebryant's picture

This game has defiantly been tougher to watch than the UA game.  The quality of football being played in the UA was just better.  Is that coaching, format, or players?

FROMTHE18's picture

good, Boyd, you will enjoy a 6-6 record annually

Robert Frost? I hear that guy can ball.

If Foster should flip to Pitt before signing day Pitt could have quite the receiver haul, Boyd is a solid WR

some of these kids dont have very impressive offer lists...punter to North Dakota... this TE's best offer is Boise State?... interesting mix of talent today

Wow. PI on the defense? Shelton Gibson pushes the guy, and gets the call. 

Junior Samples's picture

Somebody got in the refs ear..."we need some TDs"

Triv's picture

Great pull and block by Lisle on that TD run

Sorry Urban, Woody is still my favorite

oregonianbuckeye's picture

Defense required to be in a base 4-3 on goal line is a little silly. Also, east coaches were smart there running a lot on that possession. Passing game does not look good.

STRAWMAN's picture

I am really glad we have Elliot and think he will really provide a different style of RB than what we have on the roster.
That being said-- I really think Derrick Green is going to be special on the college level. Even though he has been a bit of a primadonna during the recruiting process, I like his story. He lost all of that weight to become a RB when the coaches wanted to put him on the O Line. I really hope TSUN gets him because he is a big need for them and he would really elevate the rivalry by making Michigan a better team. I know some fans take the approach that they would like Michigan to lose every game, but I think a better Michigan creates a better BIG and a better Ohio State. 

FROMTHE18's picture

pitts getting curb stomped

Ahh Saturday's picture

Lisle looked very good on that TD drive.

oregonianbuckeye's picture

Evan Lisle looks really good. Great kid from a great program at Centerville. 

Junior Samples's picture

Green limped to the bench after a 6 yard run like he was exhausted. He should call Mike Hart and ask him how 0-4 feels.

BuckeyePride's picture

Was that Eli who wiffed to tackle Bryant on that td?  He came flying in and nearly got him in the back field.  

How Firm Thy Friendship....

george_buck's picture

I think Eli is on the East.

BuckeyePride's picture

Thanks. Yeah just saw him on the field. Thanks

How Firm Thy Friendship....

STRAWMAN's picture

Also---anyone see the article on Lisle today at Rivals? Very cool that his dad is a West Point graduate and that his brother just joined the military.
Makes all the positive reports we've heard about him this week even more promising. Reminds me a lot of Andrew Norwell's recruitment. Both guys knew they wanted to be Buckeyes with as little drama as possible. Let's hope Lisle slots in as quickly as Norwell did. 

FROMTHE18's picture

two words: Ed Warinner... Lisle is in good hands

Squirrel Master's picture

torn between this game and the basketball game. I guess I can record the bball since I will still want to watch the game itself. I mostly just want to see Mitchell and Quick commit.
 

I saw a UFO once.......it told me to have a goodyear!

Nice gesture by Derrick Henry to throw the touchdown ball in the stands with the service men and women. I wouldn't mind seeing that done for every touchdown in this game

this game isnt going to be as good as yesterdays...Shane Morris cant throw incompletions or get lit up today

Nice call! NBC made it sound like a huge surprise

Hayze's picture

I feel like all these players want to commit at these AA games but when asked why they committed to thier school, they never know what to say.

FROMTHE18's picture

or they seem really uncomfortable saying the name of the school

BuckeyePride's picture

Still thinking Quick to UL?

How Firm Thy Friendship....

Yup. At this point I would be pretty surprised if he went to OSU.

Tony Stevens is next to announce. Will have A&M, FSU, and OSU hats on the table. Think he joins the monster A&M class.

bhsiba99's picture

How many pass completions have there been in this game? 2?

falconlax13's picture

James Quick just caught a long pass. So thats 3 i guess ;)

oregonianbuckeye's picture

I have so much respect for David Robinson. Absolutely love that guy. 

2002osubuck's picture

the UA game was alot more exciting so far it seems like these announcers dont really know as much info as luginbill, even though hes not my favorite, he knows a ton of recruiting info. I hope it picks up and we see some young bucks start making plays like yesterday.

Mitchell is having a solid game. Jaylon Smith is living up to the hype.

DMcDougal24's picture

Would like to see Elliott featured a little in the backfield. And a little less ND coverage

t-hane's picture

Haha. Its NBC this game has always been a ND lovefest

oregonianbuckeye's picture

You know, I'd prefer to watch the game and hear who is carrying the ball rather than getting close ups of ND recruits on the sideline. Starting to get annoyed. 

Squirrel Master's picture

SW-oops!

I saw a UFO once.......it told me to have a goodyear!

Oh Jaylon Smith, what could have been

Yeah but I am pretty excited about Trey Johnson now. He was all over the place yesterday in the UA game. Long reach, can make good tackles.

Any of you guys know how signing that many players works? Do they have to get current players to transfer? They cant take scholarships away can they ?

They had a small class last year, transfers, and some are starting in spring this year. Bad recruiting in the past...

ATLBuckeye09's picture

Yeah let them over recruit that much. This will backfire down the road when players that get career ending injuries and such get their scholarships yanked. That will make it easier to negative recruit against them.

David Robinson should get a protection order against the cameraman. 

dbit's picture

That Derrick Henry kid is real good.
And if that pass was on the mark, Gibson would've had a TD.

abrahajc's picture

I agree Derrick Henry has looked like the best RB to me in this game.  Although the announcers will remind us who the #1 and #2 RBs according to rivals are on every carry.  Couldnt imagine being in high school and having to tackle a 6'3" 240 lb runningback, but I guess thats why he has 12,000 yards rushing

d1145fresh's picture

Was that the worst field goal blocking ever? I'm pretty sure there were at least 4-5 guys that were going to block that kick. 

FROMTHE18's picture

any legit updates on Quick and his decision?

cwerph's picture

He announces at the beginning of the 4th quarter. Everyone here thinks Louisville.

FROMTHE18's picture

wonder if there is any foundation to those thoughts or if it is just pessimism with a local kid staying home...

I know. It's almost like they have exclusive television rights to their home games.....oh wait, nevermind. lol

It seems like these commentators know one thing about a couple of players.  Green is the #1 RB, Bryant is the #2 RB, Smith is the #1 OLB and Henry has the national running yardage record.

FROMTHE18's picture

prefered the analysis during the UA game, much more interesting

I agree, it's been a better telecast. And despite the lack of scoring, I think there's also been a slightly higher quality of play.

brandonbauer87's picture

That VW commercial with the kid and his dad throwing a baseball is hilarious. 

Squirrel Master's picture

not taking away anything from Jaylon but it is kind of easy to block a kick if you are not blocked at all. He and another west player both went unblocked and actually fought each other to get the block. Nothing special IMO. 

I saw a UFO once.......it told me to have a goodyear!

Apparently i just started watching at the right time!  Quick to announce in 2:00.  Nice timing for me. :)

I have a good feeling about Quick.  Gut......

Apple was in a lot I the first half...not much action on his side. That's a good thing

I knew Quick was going to Louisville. We'll take Gibson though no problem!

good for him...seems like a good kid...keep it real James...bring on Mike!

Bridgewater to Devonte Parker and James Quick is going to be nasty next year. Oh well, at least we'll get Mitchell. So I think timmons should get that offer now. 

I saw a UFO once.......it told me to have a goodyear!

FROMTHE18's picture

gotta wait to see what happens with Wilson...Kelly to the NFL will happen in a few days IMO, then Wilson's move will take place

Squirrel Master's picture

SeaBass LaRue as well. He still likes OSU although I am not sure iif OSU is still interested. Also Corn Elder. 
but I still think with Quick out now and also Stevens, Timmons is starting to look more and more like a possibility though.

Sorry Quick, no National Championship for you.

It's okay.  He has skinny ankles anyway

I came here to check who was the first member of the "we didn't want him anyway" contingent - looks like this is the winner.

gutterwaste's picture

Or you could have come here to find someone posting a joke and noone getting it.  Sheesh.

BuckeyeKrime's picture

Seems like we always lose out to the elite kids that want to stay home and play. Diggs, Quick...  Two great playmakers.

clogan1032's picture

Yep, we have received any elite commits...

rdubs's picture

I think he specifically meant the two that had bigtime interest in the home town team.  Diggs and Quick.  

BuckeyeKrime's picture

Ding ding, good job lol. Exactly what I mean, guess some people just want to be smartasses about things.

Troy0782's picture


 
In all seriousness, best of luck to the kid. I can never fault a kid for wanting to stay close to home.

Let's now get the one with a true Buckeye spirit: Ryan Timmons

BuckeyePride's picture

Que the we didn't want him anyway comments

How Firm Thy Friendship....

rdubs's picture

Well that would be false, unless your name is Waycracken.  We all wanted him, but I think over the last couple days it became clear that he was going to Louisville, so as disappointing as it is, it didn't end up as a huge surprise.

If I see one more shot of the guys in fatigues dancing in the stands, I may not be able to sleep tonite.

Time to get on twitter and harass him..... 
 
Kidding! Bad jokes is my coping mechanism

Phillips.449's picture

Really wanted him but time for "NEXT MAN UP"! 

Buckeye06's picture

It happens, I'm happy most people have been good about it so far.  I know people will now say they didn't want this kid, but a ton of schools did, and so did their fans

farmerbuck's picture

Damit!!! Oh well, good luck to him, they will be tough with him and Teddy.

You have to hate losing more than you love winning! GO BUCKS!!

Yep...I'm guessing playing time for both OSU and Louisville probably was not the issue.

Good Luck Mr. Quick, enjoy your ACC 2nd place finishes and New Years Eve bowls =D! Heck of a talent, which couldn't say no to the hometown team.

ATLBuckeye09's picture

I knew Quick would end up at Louisville in the end. No worries we'll take Gibson and win NC's with him instead of Quick playing in the ACC and never getting there because FSU will dominate. Not to mention I am not sure how long Strong will stay at Louisville.

Because they wouldn't let me go for 3!
Woody Hayes 1913-1987

Crimson's picture

I have more confidence in Quick coming to tOSU than FSU dominating :)

ATLBuckeye09's picture

Quick aleady declared for Louisville. And as for FSU dominating in the ACC vs Louisville. PAlease! FSU has NFL talent stacked across both sides of the trenches and has speed outside. Not to mention Clemson and the talent they have there. Yest I know Clemson ALWAYS chokes but they have talent as does FSU.

Because they wouldn't let me go for 3!

Quick aleady declared for Louisville.  FSU always gets great recruits and then flops.  I stand by my previous -- light-hearted, see smiley face above -- statement.

buckeye76BHop's picture

That sucks about Quick...looks like I was wrong and many saying he'd stay home were right.  Onward to the next WR...Elder, Gibson and yep...Timmons possibly.

I'm ready to close out the 2013 class and start rolling on the 2014 class. 

BuckeyeKrime's picture

Anyone else unimpressed with QB play in this game. Swoopes doesn't look good, Johnson is okay, and Browne, well he just threw into double coverage and almost an INT.

Timing is tough to get In a week especially when playing the bat corners in the country.

Run play? What's a run play, yellow?

Any relations to Boom, Frank? Guy is quit the pass rusher.

Next weekend is a HUGE recruiting weekend. Bell, Elder, Gibson, Timmons, and others on campus

at least I can use this to get me through the work week!!!

Any commits you think???

You have to hate losing more than you love winning! GO BUCKS!!

I'm guessing Worley and Gibson commit next weekend. 

Miles Joseph's picture

I could see Worley 

ATLBuckeye09's picture

Yes I look for UFM & Co to close strong on these guys! It is so refreshing to see a closer at HC of tOSU. I loved Tressel but he was NOT a closer!

I cannot get away from the USC talk.... ugh, just stop with mentioning USC announcers, please!!!

Nevermind, 2pt is good

Phillips.449's picture

I was going to be a smarta$$ and say the rule was...No overtime when there is no tie, but i held back :)

oregonianbuckeye's picture

FWIW- ESPN is reporting that Wilson is not going to visit tOSU, and is firm in his commitment to oregon. 

Hayze's picture

That's because Wilson told the media that.
The info that Wilson might end up visiting OSU is from a couple inside sources over at 247 sports.
Nothing official of concrete though.

ATLBuckeye09's picture

Not seeing anything on ESPN right now but I am also not an IN member. Link please? I have heard from multiple sources he is re-opening his recruiting up in the next week and tOSU is top of the list.

That reminds me of the Wisconsin game when Braxton Lob it to the endzone to Devin Smith. Man I wish we had quick!

Look closely, because the closer you think you are, the less you will actually see.

 

Miles Joseph's picture

Of course Quick would make a huge play

Alright Mr Mike Mitchell. Make my Saturday.  BuckeyeNation needs you!
