Maybe he was watching Jeremy Hill run roughshod over Iowa on New Year’s Day, but at Thursday's Under Armour All-American Game, the nation's top running back spurned Alabama, Florida and Maryland by committing to play for LSU in 2014.

LSU had the advantage of being the marquee program in Louisiana.
