Two Miami commits earn Under Armour All-American Game invites

Plus more news from Sundays Under Armour Camp

Christopher Stock, 247Sports

Under Armour hosted they annual camp Sunday which was littered with top talent from the South Florida area.

Some of the top attendees included:

2021 5-star Palmetto DT Leonard Taylor (#4 player, #2 DT according to 247Sports)

2021 4-star Palmetto DT Savion Collins (Miami commit)

2021 4-star Plantation WR Jacolby George (former Miami commit)

2021 4-star Chaminade-Madonna RB Thad Franklin (Miami commit)

2021 4-star Stoneman Douglas OL Michael McLaughlin (Miami commit)

2021 4-star Miami Central OL Laurence Seymore (Miami commit)

2021 4-star St. Thomas Aquinas LB Dallas Turner

2021 3-star McArthur DB Kevin Knowles

2021 3-star Columbus OL Ryan Rodriguez

2021 3-star Miami Northwestern LB Ja’Corey Hammett

I left really impressed with a few Miami targets, specifically Rodriguez and Seymore. Rodriguez was dominant the entire camp against a really, really talented group of defensive lineman such as Taylor, Collins, Florida commit Tyreak Sapp and LSU commit Anthony Hundley.

You could argue that Rodriguez had the best day of any offensive lineman at the camp and I believe it raised his stock.

He is coming off an unofficial visit to Miami this past Thursday.

Rodriguez said he plans on taking visits to Louisville and Wake Forest in the coming weeks, but that Miami is in a good place with him and that he likes the way they are doing things.

Laurence Seymore had a really good day as well — good enough to earn an UA All-American Game invite. He was rock solid drills against the same crop of defensive lineman and came away as one of the camps top performers.

“It’s great to be invited,” Seymore said. “I feel this is a great thing. That’s why I committed (to the UAAAG) today.”

Seymore recently received a Georgia offer, but remains on the hook for the Hurricanes — for now.

“I’m committed but keeping my options open,” Seymore said following Sundays work out. He plans to taking some visits in the future, but doesn't have any scheduled at the moment.

The second Hurricane commit to grab a UA All-American Game invite was Savion Collins, who joined teammates Leonard Taylor and CB Jason Marshall Jr. as Under Armour All-Americans. Marshall attended the camp, but did not participate in drills.

Collins was disruptive today and physically looks the part of a college defensive tackle.

I also came away impressed with Thad Franklin.

His size is obviously what sets him apart, but he also made a really great catch in traffic with St. Thomas Aquinas LB Jaydon Hood in coverage, who received an invitation to the UA All-American Game Sunday. Miami running backs usually need to be able to catch the ball, so seeing him make plays like that, on top of him being a great in-between the tackles runner, makes him a solid prospect.

McLaughlin is large and his 6’7 frame is a dream for offensive line coaches but he still needs to be polished. St. Thomas Aquinas LB Dallas Turner blew past him in drills today, but he also had some promising reps. Turner, the 142nd ranked player by 247Sports, won the Big Man Challenge at todays camp.

Miami Northwestern Ja’Corey Hammett showed a bit of what he could do today, but seemed to blend in with the deep defensive front present.

Another prominent attendee was the 2022 class’ #1 overall player Shemart Stewart, who filled in every bit of his 6-6 236 pound frame. The Monsignor Pace product looked larger than most if not all of the upperclassman at the event. He showed off his strength and speed today and earned a Future50 invite.

Former Miami commit and Plantation WR Jacolby George was really impressive today. He made an incredible one-handed grab in the end zone while draped in coverage, which helped earn him an invite to the All-American Game as well.

McArthur DB Kevin Knowles was the fifth invitee.
