Auburn commits faced off in the Under Armour All-America Game at the Orlando Citrus Bowl Stadium on Saturday.

Marlon Davidson, John Broussard and Landon Rice helped Team Highlight beat Team Armour 27-0.

Davidson, a four-star defensive end out of Montogmery, had five tackles, a sack and pass breakup.

Team Highlight finished the game with six sacks with three from the nation’s top rated prospect Rashan Gary. The five-star defensive tackle out of Paramus Catholic High School in New Jersey took an official visit to Auburn for the Iron Bowl.

Gary has dozens of offers and heavy interest in Michigan, Alabama, Ohio State and Clemson.

Broussard and Rice each recorded a tackle in the win.

Central High School’s Broussard announced on Twitter in mid-December he had signed a financial aid agreement with Auburn and plans to enroll early.

After helping the Red Devils reach the state semifinals, the defensive back also played in the Alabama-Mississippi All-Star game. He finished the season with 32 total tackles, one interception and nine passes broken up.

For Team Armour, Auburn verbal commit Woody Barrett started the game at quarterback. On the team’s opening drive he completed his first and only pass to Kareem Walker for a loss of a yard.

The dual threat quarterback was sacked four times and brought down behind the line of scrimmage on one of his two rush attempts.

Spanish Fort linebacker Tre Threat, another player who signed an early financial aid agreement with Auburn, had four tackles, 1.5 for a loss and a pass breakup. The pass breakup came on a first down with Team Highlight in the red zone.

According to MaxPreps.com, Threat had 88 tackles this season with eight for a loss and four sacks.

A pair of Auburn verbal commits at wide receiver were also part of the game, but Eli Stove didn’t record a catch for Team Armour and Kyle Davis sat out the game with an injury.
