Jasper’s Terrell Cuney to Play in 2014 U.S. Army All-American Bowl
It's been a good week for Terrell Cuney.
Three days after making his college commitment, the 6-foot-3, 260-pound offensive lineman accepted an invitation to play in the 2014 U.S. Army All-American Bowl, according to 247Sports.com.
Cuney, who is widely considered the nation's top center prospect in the 2014 class, committed to Texas on Saturday during a visit to Austin for the Longhorns' spring game, which was that night. He also has offers from TCU and Texas Tech.
Cuney is the second East Texan to accept an Army All-American Bowl invitation, joining Mount Pleasant receiver K.D. Cannon, whose 17 offers are the most among East Texans in the 2014 class. Cannon caught 104 passes for 1,597 yards and 25 touchdowns as a junior, finishing first, second, and first, respectively, in the region in those categories.
Cuney is also the second Jasper Bulldog selected for the Army All-American Bowl. In 2003, offensive lineman Jorrie Adams played in the contest before signing with Texas A&M.
The 2014 U.S. Army All-American Bowl will be the ninth in a row with at least one East Texan participating. The game is Jan. 4 at San Antonio's Alamodome.
