Ole Miss Rebels-to-be Perform in Under Armour All-American Game

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

One of the most watched showcases of high school talent was yesterday afternoon in St. Petersburg, Florida. SB Nation's full recap is here.

Three Ole Miss Rebel commitments were on the "Team Nitro" roster for the Under Armour High School All-American Game, which was held yesterday in St. Petersburg, Florida. "Team Highlight" defeated Nitro, 31-21, but that didn't keep a pair of Rebs-to-be from showcasing their skills.

Defensive lineman Garrald McDowell, who is listed by ESPN as the #8 defensive tackle in the country, had a pair of tackles, with one being an assisted sack for a five yard loss, after which he flashed the landshark for the ESPN cameras. McDowell is listed as 6'1", 2567 pounds by the ESPN recruiting service.

Kicker Gary Wunderlich out of Memphis University School played as Team Nitro's kickoff specialist, kicking off three times and registering no touchbacks. He did not attempt a field goal. He also punted twice for Nitro, averaging 43 yards per punt. Wunderlich is the #2 high school kicker in the country, per ESPN.

I did not see offensive guard Rod Taylor's name after a cursory glance at the participation report, but his skills didn't need showcasing yesterday for him to remain as one of the country's top guard's and arguably Mississippi's top prospect this year. ESPN lists him as the #2 guard in the country and the top player in the Magnolia State.

And, for good measure, Taylor threw up a landshark of his own, despite his being an offensive lineman:
