All-American Bowl has ACC flavor

North Carolina has two recruiting commitments who have been invited to participate in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl high school football all-star game, set for Jan.3 in San Antonio.

Future Tar Heels' defensive end Donte Moss of Jacksonville (N.C.) Northside High and wide receiver Joshua Adams of Cheshire (Conn.) Academy have been selected to play in the game.

Clemson commitment Malliciah Goodman, a DE from West Florence (S.C.) High, will also play.

Other ACC schools with invitees include Miami (two), Virginia Tech and Florida State (one each).

Notre Dame and Texas had the most future players invited, with six apiece, followed Southern Cal with five and Alabama and Ohio State with four.

Also invited is Xavier Nixon of Fayetteville Jack Britt High, the state's best offensive lineman. He remains undecided on a school, but may announce his choice during the game.
