The Army All-American Bowl Can Go One of N Ways

Floyd and Henderson and we're cool

The 10th Army All-American Bowl kicks off at 1pm (NBC) in the Alamodome today representing one of the last college football fixes until spring games roll around. It's this game, national signing day on February 3rd and then 10 weeks of praying your team avoids the Fulmer Cup pretty much.

Though only five Buckeye targets are playing in the game (six if you count Norwell), two of them are planning to announce where they will be taking their considerable talents for the next three or more years.

First up is Glenville defensive back Latwan Anderson, rated the 18th best prospect nationally by Rivals. Ginn Sr's kids used to be Buckeye-automatic, but Cordale Scott and others have been bucking the trend lately. We're hearing Anderson is headed to Morgantown, but we won't stop believing until we see the Flying WV on his dome. We now know Anderson will attend West Virginia....for now.

Meanwhile, Sharrif Floyd, the nation's top defensive tackle prospect has been dropping cryptic hints all week. The hometown press in Philly think it's down to Ohio State and Florida, but at this point, it's anybody's guess with the guy that seems intent on surprising people. Also in contention: North Carolina, South Carolina, Penn State, Mount Union. Floyd chooses the Gators and we settle with Hankins.

Offensive lineman Seantrel Henderson, the nation's top recruit, will hit the field for the West, but isn't expected to make a decision anytime soon. Long thought to be narrowed down to Ohio State and USC, Petey heading to Seattle is great news.

St. X's Matt James and Glennville's Christian Bryant, two more undecided participants, could also find their way onto the 2010 class, depending on how things break.
