Armwood's Leon McQuay III to announce college at Under Armour game

Armwood S Leon McQuay III arrived at the principal's conference room Tuesday morning bedecked in black slacks and a bow tie.

Minutes later, he had accented his wardrobe with an official Under Armour All-America Game jersey.

McQuay and Hawks teammate Alvin Bailey formally were presented their jerseys for the Jan. 4 contest before a roomful of reporters, recruitniks, relatives and coaches. In exchange, McQuay will save his college decision for the game.

McQuay's dad, Leon Jr., confirmed his son will announce his college choice at some point during the contest, which kicks off at 5 p.m. at Tropicana Field. ESPN will televise the game live.

McQuay's final five schools: Vanderbilt (which he visited last weekend), Oregon, Michigan, FSU and Southern California. He'll visit Oregon on Oct. 27, Michigan on Nov. 9 and FSU on Nov. 24. His USC visit hasn't been slated.

McQuay (right) and Bailey, a Florida commitment, are ranked 40th and 69th, respectively, in the latest ESPN 150 national rankings. They're among 90 players selected from across the nation by ESPN Scouts for the contest. Whether they'll play on the same team remains unclear; teams aren't divided geographically.

Hawks coach Sean Callahan will coach in the game in an undetermined capacity.
