U.S Army Bowl Recruiting Wrap-Up

The SEC was very involved on Saturday when prospects at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio were announcing their college decisions.

Georgia received the news it had been waiting on when athlete Damian Swann from Atlanta committed to the Bulldogs. The announcement on Saturday probably came easily for Swann.

It’s been my decision for about a month,” said Swann, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution. “I wanted to do it out here so I had to keep it a secret for a while. But I’m glad to finally get it off my chest.”

Dee Hart made a similar move. The running back from Dr. Phillips High School in Orlando, Fla., gave a public commitment to Alabama. The news wasn’t a big surprise considering his friend and teammate, Alabama commit Ha’Sean Clinton-Dix, mentioned Hart’s commitment to the Crimson Tide earlier in the week.

Hart switched his commitment from Michigan to Alabama.

“Because of the Michigan coach change, plus coach (Nick) Saban and I got a good relationship,” Hart said, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

Alabama’s in-state rival, Auburn, had an even better day at the U.S. Army Bowl. The Tigers landed commitments from athletes Kris Frost and Brent Calloway, who switched his commitment from Alabama to Auburn.

I just weighed out my options and I feel more comfortable,” Calloway told Rivals.com. “I felt more comfortable running the ball and I looked at the depth. I looked at all the aspects you’re supposed to look as an athlete going to a college and to make a life decision for four years. After I weighed out everything, it was Auburn. It feels right for me.”

Alabama has recruited Calloway to play linebacker. His preference, however, appears to be to play running back in college. Auburn will give him that opportunity.

He hardly played any defense this season,” Scout.com recruiting analyst Andrew Bone told The Birmingham News. “He really likes running the ball and had over 2,000 (rushing) yards this season.”

LSU received a commitment from athlete Odell Beckham Jr. from Isidore Newman High School in New Orleans. Beckham could play offense or defense for the Tigers.

“I’m much better with the ball in my hands,” Beckham told Rivals. “It’s really going to be whatever the coaches need. If they need me at DB, I’d play DB.”

Beckham’s commitment wrapped up a solid weekend in recruiting for LSU. Baton Rouge running back Jeremy Hill, who recently visited Auburn, re-committed to the Tigers on Friday.

The 2011 class for Ole Miss received a boost when wide receiver Tobias Singleton from Madison (Miss.) Central High School committed to the Rebels.

Singleton, who’s considered the nation’s 12th-best receiver by Rivals, is the 26th commitment for Ole Miss in 2011.
