Berkeley Prep rising senior Nelson Agholor's name has been added to the list of commitments to play in next year's Under Armour All-American Game, according to the ESPNU website.

The 6-foot-1, 180-pounder, one of the Tampa Bay area's top recruits this season, is ranked the No. 42 overall prospect and the seventh best athlete in the nation by ESPNU. He has a bevy of major college offers from across the country including Florida, Florida State, Georgia, LSU, Texas and USC. He is listed as a four-star recruit by ESPNU.

Lakewood defensive end and FSU commit Dante Fowler has also committed to play in the game.

Seven of ESPNU's top 10 prospects have committed to play in this year's Under Armour game, which is broadcast on the ESPN networks.

Along with the U.S. Army All-American Game, the Under Armour game is one of the top high school showcase games for seniors. The game has been played in St. Petersburg at Tropicana Field in early January the past two years.

Last season, Alonso defensive end Anthony Chickillo earned East Team MVP honors in the game, skyrocketing his recruiting stock leading up to signing day.
