All-Under Armour team


Putting together an All-Under Armour team over the last three games is a distinct challenge. Weighing performance during the week and in the game, along with college performance to this point is a difficult balancing act that we know leads to tough choices and worthy prospects being left off. This is especially challenging when you have multiple players at one position like wide receiver or defensive back.

We tried to be as fair as we could with what we saw during the week, how kids competed, if they have had a chance to truly contribute yet in college and if so, how have they performed and what has their impact been. The reality is that this list could go on and on because the likes of USC QB Matt Barkley, South Carolina CB Stephon Gilmore and Auburn RB Michael Dyer were left off. This should give you an idea of the caliber of player that has participated in the Under Armour All-America Game in just three short years.
