Lakeside's Roundtree Named to Under Armour All-America Team

Posted: Updated:
Evans, GA (WJBF) -- It was another big day for Lakeside junior defensive back Rashad Roundtree. This morning at Lakeside High School, the Panthers held a pep rally to honor Roundtree on being named to the Under Armour All-America Team. He will play in the 2015 game that will be televised by ESPN. About 90-100 of the top players in each class are selected to play in this game, according to a spokesman from ESPN. Roundtree calls it a "huge honor," and he's "very excited" to get the opportunity to play in the game, considered one of the most prestigious high school football all-star games.

That was just the start of his day. It continued with more of the recruiting blitz as many of the top colleges in the country continue to vie for his services. Coaches from Florida (Will Muschamp), Duke, Ole Miss, and South Carolina all visited Roundtree on Friday. Rashad says he has 11 offers at this point. Those four schools that visited today have offered plus Alabama, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Clemson, Michigan State, Ohio State, and Virginia Tech.

Rashad didn't give any indication Friday that he was leaning towards any school at this point. He said he plans on waiting until after his senior season of football to make his college choice.

Lakeside head football coach Jarrett Troxler was also excited about the news of Roundtree being named to the Under Armour team on Friday. He says it's great for Roundtree and great for the program. He also said this "just didn't happen," that Roundtree put in a ton of work over the last 3 years. But he says he's known since Rashad's freshman year that Roundtree had division one talent.
