(Wharton, N.J.) Nov. 12, 2012 – Torrodney Prevot of Alief Taylor High School, Houston, Texas, has been selected to play in the 2013 U.S. Army All-American Bowl, joining an elite group of All-Americans. Those selected will play in the game on Saturday, January 5, 2013, at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. The annual East vs. West match-up will be televised live on NBC at 1:00 p.m. EST and will feature the nation’s top 90 high school football players.
The 6-foot-4, 205-pounder bolsters an impressive roster for the U.S. Army All-American contest. Prevot is currently rated as the No. 9 defensive end in the country by Scout.com, making him a four-star prospect.
Prevot has made a non-binding verbal commitment to sign with USC on National Letter of Intent Day.
Scout Eval: Extremely quick off the ball. He is past offensive linemen in a flash and makes a lot of plays behind the line of scrimmage. A pass rushing specialist, he will likely play a hybrid DE/OLB role in college and play it well. He will need to add a lot of muscle and size, but he uses his long arm and hands to keep his distance from blockers, which gives him the space to his quickness and burst. He uses that same length to bat down balls.
“Torrodney is a talented athlete whose leadership and teamwork qualities have made him a standout at Alief Taylor High School,” said John Myers, Director of Marketing, Army Marketing and Research Group. “Only the strongest wear the Army colors, and Torrodney possesses mental, emotional and physical strengths similar to the Army Strong Soldier, that have afforded him that honor. We are proud to welcome all of the U.S. Army All-American Bowl players and commend each of them on their selection.”
Prevot was selected by the U.S. Army All-American Bowl Selection Committee.
For more than a decade, the U.S. Army All-American Bowl has been the Nation’s premier high school football game, serving as the preeminent launching pad for America’s future college and NFL stars. Percy Harvin, Jamaal Charles, Patrick Peterson, and Andrew Luck all made their national debuts as U.S. Army All-Americans. In the 2012 NFL Draft Andrew Luck became the first U.S. Army All-American Bowl alumnus to be selected with the first overall pick. The 2012 U.S. Army All-American Bowl drew a record crowd of 39,011 to the Alamodome, and was the most-watched sporting event on television over the weekend, excluding the NFL playoffs.
