John Marshall High School football player Justin Broiles received his jersey for the Under Armor All American football game on Tuesday afternoon, October 4.

Broiles will play in the prestigious All American game on Sunday, January 1, 2017, in Orlando, Florida.

The senior defensive back says he's currently strongly committed to play college football for the University of Oklahoma starting in the 2017 season.

He went from being lightly recruited in his junior season to currently being rated as a four star recruit, according to Rivals.com, and considered by some to be the best football player in the state of Oklahoma.

Broiles will join several other Sooner commitments playing in the game too.

The teenager also took time in his speech to his classmates, teachers, family and friends to remember his late friend and teammate C.J., 'Cleato', Davis.
