Thoughts on 2017 U.S. Army All-American Bowl

Donovan Peoples-Jones (image via USA Today)

The U.S. Army All-American Bowl took place yesterday, and there were several Michigan-related players involved – including offensive tackle Chuck Filiaga, who committed to the Wolverines during the broadcast (LINK). Here are my thoughts on the game, which was won 27-17 by the East.


Cheshire (CT) Cheshire Academy wide receiver Tarik Black was a backup wideout for the East team, but he was the first receiver in off the bench. He earned positive reviews throughout the week of practice for his route-running abilities, something that I noted in his commitment post. The East quarterbacks targeted him a few times, but he ended the game with just 1 catch for 9 yards. One of the incompletions was a back-shoulder fade on which Black failed to adjust (a tough play that almost never works with such little time to build chemistry), and the other was a post route that was thrown too high and broken up by the defensive back. He played about as expected.

Aledo (TX) Aledo offensive tackle Chuck Filiaga was the backup right tackle for the West. To be honest, I did not keep an eye out for Filiaga. He was the backup right tackle, and there were too many other players to watch.

Flint (MI) Southwestern defensive end Deron Irving-Bey was a backup defensive end for the East squad. He’s another player that I did not notice, except for 1 QB pressure. I did record the game, and I’ll go back and take a look before finalizing the TTB Ratings, but for now I have nothing significant to report. I can say that he did not stand out, because if he had, I would have noticed.

Thoughts on U.S. Army All-American Bowl

David Long, Jr.

I think the best passer in the game was Shea Patterson (Ole Miss), who looked the smoothest throwing the ball and the most in command of the offense; he can also run pretty well. Jacob Eason (Georgia) made some nice throws and has a cannon for an arm, but he’s a little bit wild and doesn’t know when to take something off of his throws. As for Michigan commit Brandon Peters, he looked okay. His release is too long, so he’s going to take some extra hits until he gets rid of the ball quicker. He did make some nice throws, including a seam route to Donnie Corley and a short screen pass under pressure; however, both of the deep balls he threw sailed a little bit, and one was almost intercepted because of it. If I’m being objective, I don’t see Peters competing for the starting job next year. He needs a lot of work, and his footwork is basically non-existent. He finished the game 4/16 for 74 yards, 0 touchdowns, and 0 interceptions. K.J. Costello (Stanford) did a good job overall, too, and I can’t for the life of me understand why Brady Hoke took Messiah DeWeaver’s commitment when Michigan had a good shot at Costello.
