On Wednesday afternoon, the roster for the Under Armour All-America camp series was announced, and there are a few players listed that Northwestern fans should keep an eye on: 2018 commits OG Wyatt Blake, DE Devin O’Rourke, CB Greg Newsome and QB Jason Whittaker.
The Under Armour All-America camp series is essentially a skills showcase for top middle school and high school football players across the country. The camps are invite-only and exist in 10 states nationwide. They began Feb. 19 in Los Angeles and conclude June 3 in Baltimore.
Northwestern’s four commits will be competing in the Chicago camp, which kicks off Sunday, April 23, at Glenbrook North High School in Northbrook, Ill. The camp will focus on a multitude of skill measurements, including the 40-yard dash, pro agility and the vertical jump. If they performs well, they could earn an invitation to the 2018 Under Armour All-America game next year.
Incidentally, Blake, O’Rourke, Newsome and Whittaker are four of Northwestern’s top five 2018 commits. Louisiana safety Jeremiah McDonald (ranked second in the class) will not be in attendance at the Chicago camp.
