Under Armour All-American Game News & Notes

  • 247sports named Justin Shorter the Alpha Dog of the day on Tuesday. Ricky Slade was a top five performer offensively, while Jayson Oweh — who will be announcing his college decision at the game on Thursday — was named a top performer on the defensive side of the ball.
  • PJ Mustipher is having a great week too according to 247Sports, taking home the Alpha Dog honor during the first day of practice on Sunday. You can also view OL/DL one-on-ones, which featured Mustipher and Oweh, here.
  • Mike Farrell of Rivals says that Shorter and Mustipher are raising their stock this week, which makes sense given that Rivals has both criminally underrated. They currently have Shorter ranked as the No. 47 overall prospect, while Mustipher comes in at No. 164. Both prospects should rise significantly in the final rankings.
  • Fellow Rivals writer Rob Cassidy praised the future Nittany Lions, saying the Penn State prospects were having the best week of any group of commits at the event.

  • 247Sports also highlighted Parsons’ performance, saying that the Harrisburg athlete was “unreal as an edge rusher.”
