High School Football America

If you tuned-in to watch the best high school football players in America put on a great show in the annual U.S. Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio, you were disappointed.

The East beat the West 13-10 in a game that didn't have much excitement. The West amassed minus-20 yards rushing thanks to 12 sacks by the East defense.

The real show in this annual game is the announcement by the blue chip players on where they will play their college ball.

This year 14 players made their announcements before the national television audience on watching on NBC.

Demetrius Hart (Dr. Phillips HS, FL) was named the game's MVP after becoming the first player to rush for 100-yards in the game. Hart, who earlier in the week was named the U.S. Army National Player of the Year, confirmed his commitment to Alabama during the game.

Here's the list of those that made their verbal commitments during the game...

Odell Beckham - Isadore Newman, LA - LSU
Brent Calloway - Russellville HS, AL - Auburn
Kris Frost - Butler HS, NC - Auburn
Dee Hart - Dr. Phillips HS, FL - Alabama
