Big honor for Huggins

He's only 15, but already Albert Huggins is kind of a big deal.

Albert Huggins hopes to visit Florida and Florida State this summer.

Thus far, the sophomore defensive end from Orangeburg (S.C.) Orangeburg-Wilkinson has offers from Alabama, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, Georgia and South Carolina.

And now, he has something else -- an invitation to play in the 2015 Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio, Texas.

It came Friday.

"Awe man, it's an honor to get invited to one of the great games in high school sports," Huggins said. "I feel blessed."

The 6-feet-3, 280-pound Huggins, who recently shined at the Charlotte Nike Football Training Camp, is the first 2015 player in the Palmetto State to get an Army invite.

'I was surprised -- I really was," Huggins said. "I thought it would come later. The first person I told was my dad. He was very excited."

At this point, Huggins claims no leaders.

He has made visits to Clemson and South Carolina, and hopes to hit a few more schools in the coming months.

"I don't have anything coming up," Huggins said. "Not until the summer. This summer, I want to go to Florida and Florida State."

Although he currently plays end, Huggins thinks his future is at tackle.
