Texas A&M fans will have a chance to see some of the reasons the Aggies earned the No. 1 draft class in the country on Saturday when five of their games take part in the Polynesian Bowl in Hawaii. The final all-star game before National Signing Day on February 2 will air on the CBS Sports Network at 6:30 pm ET.
Quarterback commitments targeting Tennessee, Miami, Michigan State and UCLA will also be on display. Travis Hunter, the No. 1 player in the nation who shocked the college football world by signing with Jackson State in December, will play in his second All-Star game. He also played in the Under Armor All-America Game on January 2. Notre Dame will have four future players in the game, as will USC.
Michigan, coming off a Big Ten championship and a college football playoff appearance, will have three players participating.
And while Texas A&M hopes to have five future players from the Polynesian Bowl, five-star linebacker Harold Perkins appears to be waffling on the commitment he made at the Under Armor All-America Game. Perkins is yet to sign and told Rivals.com this week that he will make a final announcement on Saturday in Honolulu. Since the UA game, Perkins has visited Florida and has also been heavily drafted by Miami and LSU.
This is the fifth edition of the event, which takes place in conjunction with the Polynesian Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Week. Past players include Clemson quarterback DJ Uiagalelei, Notre Dame running back Chris Tyree, Oregon linebacker Justin Flowe and Alabama linebacker Henry To’oto’o.
