Pine High School receiver Derrick Dillon and Riverdale defensive back Donte Jackson are still considering LSU, but neither announced a decision during U.S. Army All-American Bowl week.
Dillon, who is committed to Florida, is scheduled to visit LSU on Jan. 16.
Jackson said he will announce Jan. 21 whether he will attend LSU, Georgia or Southern Cal.
While he would love to have both as teammates again, Catholic-Baton Rouge running back Derrius Guice said he did not attempt to sway either to attend LSU.
“I didn’t really talk to them about it. That’s their decision,” Guice said. “I can’t budge in on somebody else’s decision. I just let them do what they want. If they wind up with me, that’s great, but if they don’t, I still wish them the best of luck.”
East St. John defensive back Xavier Lewis, who has committed to LSU, had two tackles for the West.
Clairington commits to Texas
Tight end Devonaire Clarington of Miami announced he will be attending Texas, choosing the Longhorns over LSU, Miami and Florida. The 6-foot-5, 222-pound Clarington is the nation’s fourth-rated tight end, according to 247 Sports.
Running back Tim Irvin of Miami also committed to Texas.
In addition to Clarington and Irvin, seven other players announced their college choices live on national television.
Southern California received a pair of in-state commitments, picking up wide receivers Ykili Ross of Riverside and Marvell Tell of Encino.
Defensive lineman Kyle Phillips of Nashville committed to Tennessee, and wide receiver Lawrence Cager of Townson, Maryland, pledged to the Miami Hurricanes. Others committing included defensive tackle Neville Gallimore to Oklahoma and defensive back Stanley Norman of Concord, California is committed to Arizona State.
West has the edge
With the victory, the West holds an 8-7 advantage in the All-American Bowl.
