Okay, it's not North-South. It's East-West. But still, what are these Southern boys doing on a team…
Arkansas' U.S. Army All-American
Shelley hasn't taken an official visit to the home state Arkansas Razorbacks, but that doesn't hurt the Hawgs' chances.
"Arkansas is still in it; I don't need to take an official visit there. I've been up there plenty of times with games and stuff. I know the feel for it."
Shelley has been wide open throughout the recruiting process, and he's not ready to change that now.
"All of those are my favorites. A lot of coaches are leaving and a lot of coaches have left like the Oklahoma State coaches left to go to LSU."
The break from basketball has been welcomed by Shelley, and he is looking forward to playing in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.
"It's great, you work with ESPN and find out you might have a chance to play in this game, and when you get to play in it, it tells you a lot that you're one of the top players in the nation. It's a privilege to play in this game."
The East squad has two big receivers in Fred Rouse and Patrick Turner, and the West will have some size of its own in the form of 6-4 and 195 pounds Slick Shelley.
The U.S. Army All-American Bowl is played in San Antonio, Texas., at the Alamodome on Jan. 15, 2005, and broadcast nationally on NBC at 1 p.m., Eastern. Scout.com is a sponsor, the official selection partner and exclusive on-line partner of the U.S. Army All-American Bowl, as well as the associated U.S. Army Combine for underclassmen.
