Future Buckeye's Army Selection

Brooklyn Eramus Hall athlete Curtis Samuel, who is committed to Ohio State, received his U.S. Army All-American Bowl jersey during a presentation at his school Friday.

Curtis Samuel of Erasmus Hall High School in Brooklyn, NY, has been selected to play in the 2014 U.S. Army All-American Bowl, joining an elite group of All-Americans.

Those selected will play in the game on Saturday, January 4, 2014, at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. The annual East vs. West match-up will be televised live on NBC at 1:00 p.m. EST and will feature the nation’s top 90 high school football players.

“Samuel is a talented athlete whose leadership and teamwork qualities have made him a standout at Erasmus Hall High School,” said Mark Davis, deputy assistant Secretary of the Army for Marketing. “Only the strongest wear the Army colors, and are proud to welcome all of the U.S. Army All-American Bowl players and commend each of them on their selection.”

Samuel, a 6-foot-0, 185-pounder is rated as a Scout.com four-star prospect, the No. 26 wide receiver nationally.

"Samuel plays running back and defensive back Erasmus Hall, but after watching him in 7-on-7s in the spring and at The Opening, it is between safety and receiver (in college)," Scout.com National Analyst Brian Dohn informed. "Given Samuel’s speed and size, getting the ball in his hands makes him an interesting weapon on offense and at this point, it looks like he will be a receiver in college."

"He shows strong hands, although he did have a few passes bounce off of them, but that was when he was coming out of breaks and had to pick up the ball quickly. Samuel doesn’t play much receiver in high school, so that should be something that develops the more he plays."

He is committed to Ohio State.

For more than 13 years, the U.S. Army All-American Bowl has been the nation’s premier high school football game, serving as the preeminent launching pad for America’s future college and NFL stars. Adrian Peterson and Andrew Luck made their national debuts as U.S. Army All-Americans.
