The sixth annual UnderArmoru All-America Game will take place at Tropicana Dome
in St. Petersburg (Fla.), with the practices being held in Orlando, and there is
again, a nice selection of West Coast prospects in the game.
Stockton (Calif.) Lincoln quarterback Zack Greenlee shined all spring and
summer, earning MVP honors at the Las Vegas Elite 11 Regionals and was named to
the Elite 11 Finals in Southern California. The Fresno State commit continues
his year to remember with a selection to the UnderArmour All-America Game.
Salt Lake City (Utah) Cottonwood quarterback Cooper Batemen didn't have the
season quite that Greenlee did, but he's got one of the highest ceilings of any
quarterback in this class. The Alabama verbal will be representing the
Crimson Tide, with a slew of other future Bama players.
The West will be represented by two receivers from Southern California, both
commits to the Pac-12.
Moreno Valley (Calif.) Rancho Verde receiver Demorea Stringfellow, who's
committed to Washington, and is the top big receiver in the region will be
joined by Santa Monica (Calif.) receiver Sebastian LaRue, who's committed to
USC, but is still considering Notre Dame, Texas A&M, Washington State and UCLA.
The West's top tight end prospect, Riverside (Calif.) J.W. North's Marcus Baugh,
will be one of a number of Ohio State verbals playing in the game.

linemen and the four-star will stay in-state and play at Oregon.

play at UCLA, the third brother in his family to play FBS football, but the
first named to an All-American Game.
Rounding out that trip is Corona (Calif.) Centennial's Cameron Hunt, a four-star
offensive guard prospect who's committed to Cal, but will visit Michigan and
Oregon in January.
The West will only have four defensive prospects playing in the game, but
they're a solid contingent.
Leading the way is Tempe (Ariz.) Marcos De Niza cornerback Priest Willis.
The five-star corner will likely play safety during the week, and he may
announce his decision on Friday, choosing between Arizona State, LSU, Nebraska
Mission Viejo (Calif.) safety Max Redfield had been committed to USC for some
time before he decommitted. He will announce a final decision between USC
and Notre Dame the day of the game.
