Five recent signees in Auburn football's recruiting class of 2024 are set to participate in a high school all-star game, the 24th annual All-American Bowl
Today, one of the biggest high school all-star games will kick off it's 24th contest. The All-American Bowl, presented by NBC Sports, will feature some of the top high school athletes in East vs. West fashion in the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.
Three of the top ten prospects in the country are slated to play in the game: #1 WR and overall recruit Jeremiah Smith (Ohio State commit), #6 overall recruit and former Auburn football target LJ McCray (Florida commit), and #7 overall recruit Ryan Wingo (Texas commit).
The Auburn football program will have five signees representing the orange and blue, including the Tigers' 2024 quarterback. The Tigers have players on both the East and West rosters.
4-star quarterback Walker White will be one of three quarterbacks on team West. The Little Rock, Arkansas, native has been committed to the Tigers since last February, and head coach Hugh Freeze believes he has the potential to be a star.
4-star offensive lineman DeAndre Carter, from Mater Dei High School in Santa Ana, California, is also suiting up for Team West. The #3 offensive lineman in the recruiting class of 2024, Carter was a high-priority target for the Auburn Tigers, who locked down his commitment in early September.
4-star defensive lineman Amaris Williams is the first Tiger to play for Team East. The #8 DL and the #1 prospect out of North Carolina, Williams was originally committed to Florida but flipped to the Tigers on national signing day in December.
Next up on Team East is 4-star linebacker Demarcus Riddick, who has been committed to Auburn football since the summer after flipping from Georgia. The #5 LB in the class of 2024, Riddick has stayed firm with the Tigers since his flip and even participated in bowl practice in December.
The final Auburn football signee to play in the All-American Bowl is 4-star defensive back Kensley Faustin, who also committed to the Tigers back in the summer. Faustin had a massive senior season in Naples and was a big pickup for Freeze and the coaching staff.
The 24th annual All-American Bowl will kick off at noon central time today and can be watched on NBC or streamed on Peacock.
