The Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl is the newest of the top three major games for top high school recruits and while it isn’t on the same level as the U.S. Army All-American Bowl or Under Armour All-American Game, this game still has a lot of very good recruits participating.

The 2015 Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl has three players announcing their college commitments during the game and one of those players is 4-star QB Dwayne Lawson.

Lawson was originally committed to the Miami Hurricanes but a couple weeks after Lawson took an official visit to Virginia Tech when they faced Virginia, Lawson announced that he had reopened his recruitment and was no longer committed to Miami.

Lawson is fairly highly ranked among prospects in Florida as Rivals has him as Florida’s 56th best recruit, ESPN has him 39th, and the 247 Sports Composite has him 36th.

The 247 Sports Composite has Lawson as the tenth best pro-style QB while ESPN has him as the sixth-best dual threat QB and Rivals has him as the 16th best dual-threat QB. ESPN has Lawson as the 211th best recruit in the nation while the 247 Sports Composite has him as the 254th best recruit.

Lawson is definitely a top target for plenty of major programs but there were only a few program that were even considered once Lawson officially reopened his recruitment. Those four programs were Virginia Tech, Miami, Ole Miss, and South Florida in what is a very unique group of contenders.

Now, Lawson has made his decision and is ready to announce it in primetime on Fox Sports 1. The question is where will Lawson choose to play his college football at? Let’s take a look at the contenders.
