""Ty is a talented athlete whose leadership and teamwork qualities have made him a standout at Apopka High School," said John Myers, Director of Strategic Communications, Marketing and Outreach, U.S. Army Accessions Command. "Only the strongest wear the Army colors, and Ty possesses similar mental, emotional and physical strengths to Army Strong Soldiers. We are proud to honor all of the U.S. Army All-American Bowl players and congratulate each of them on their selection."
The 6-foot-3, 275-pounder bolsters an impressive roster for the U.S. Army All-American contest. He is currently rated as the #3 center in the country by Scout.com, making him a four-star prospect.
Darlington is committed to play his college ball for Oklahoma.
Scout Eval: You will have a hard time finding a better center prospect anywhere in the state. Darlington is well built and very powerful inside. He's an explosive blocker and has quick enough feet to be good in pass pro, get to the second level, and things like that. He's the son of one of the best coaches at the prep level in Florida and is very sharp and understands the game very well. He has all the tools you look for in a quality center prospect. - Mike Bakas
