The Under Armour All-American Game is one of the two most highly-regarded high school All-American showcases in the country (along with the All-American Bowl, formerly known as the Army All-American Bowl). Played in Orlando, Florida's Camping World Stadium, the Under Armour game offers fans a chance to catch a glimpse of some of college football's best future players.

South Carolina football fans should view tonight's Under Armour Game as must-see TV.

The Gamecocks have a whopping 7 signees who are Under Armour All-Americans. 5-star EDGE Dylan Stewart, 4-star quarterback Dante Reno, 4-star offensive tackle Kam Pringle, 4-star tight end Michael Smith, 4-star cornerback Jalewis Solomon, 3-star wide receiver Debron Gatling, and 5-star kicker/punter Mason Love are all Under Armour All-Americans. Pringle and Solomon are unavailable for the game, however.

Stewart has been turning heads at practice leading up to the event. He was picking up pass rush wins off the EDGE, bowling over bigger offensive linemen who tried to stop him, stuffing run plays that tried to go outside, and even blowing up a jet sweep before it could get by him. The team at 247Sports has described Stewart as the "Alpha Dog" of the event so far.

Tight end Michael Smith and wide receiver Debron Gatling have also had nice showings in Orlando. Smith was called a "ball magnet" in the red zone by the 247Sports scouts, and Gatling has won his fair share of 1-on-1 matchups with higher-rated defensive backs.

South Carolina football fans can tune in to check out the Under Armour All-American Game today, Wednesday, January 4th, at 4:00 on ESPN or the ESPN app.

For the game, Stewart, Reno, Gatling, and Love will suit up for Team Fire, while Smith will play for Team Ice. Stewart and Reno are the defensive and offensive captains, respectively, for Team Fire.

This weekend (Saturday, January 6th), the All-American Bowl will be played in San Antonio's Alamodome. 5-star offensive tackle signee Josiah Thompson will play in the game. 4-star linebacker/EDGE Fred "JayR" Johnson is also an All-American but does not appear to be available for the game as he is not listed on the roster.
