Twenty-six Ohio players and five Ohio State commits nominated for U.S. Army All-American Bowl

Expect multiple Ohio players to receive invitations to the nation's top high school football all-star game.

The initial list of 400 nominations for the 2014 U.S. Army All-American Bowl includes 26 players from the state. Five players from the Greater Cleveland area -- Glenville wide receiver Marshon Lattimore, Glenville offensive lineman Marcelys Jones, Glenville defensive back Erick Smith, St. Ignatius linebacker Kyle Berger and St. Ignatius offensive lineman Jimmy Byrne -- are on the list.  Yes, Glenville and St. Ignatius will be fun to watch this season.

Berger and Jones are key parts of Ohio State's 2014 recruiting class. St. Vincent-St. Mary linebacker Dante Booker, Lancaster offensive lineman Kyle Trout and Cass Tech (Mich.) defensive back Damon Webb are other Ohio State recruits nominated to play in the game. The Buckeyes' recruiting class currently includes nine players. 

Four Ohio players, including Cleveland Heights wide receiver Shelton Gibson, participated in this year's All-American Bowl. Former Mentor standout Tom Strobel participated in the 2012 game. Strobel is a redshirt freshman at Michigan.

The 2014 game is Jan. 4 at the Alamodome in San Antonio.
