Southeast's Poole won't play in Army All-American Bowl

Southeast defensive back Brian Poole said he will not play in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl slated for next January in San Antonio.

Poole, the number two ranked cornerback in the country by Scout.Com, said he was invited to the Army All-American Bowl more than a month ago, but has always just planned on playing in the Under Armour All American Bowl because it is going to be played in the Tampa area and allow his family and friends to attend.

Poole is currently recovering from foot surgery he had three weeks ago. Now a Florida commit, he lists himself at about 75 percent healthy and said he would start rehabbing in about a week.

"I got the invitation to go to both bowls more than a month ago, but I am just going to play in the Under Armour because it's close to home," Poole said. "I am committed to Florida, but i am still going to take all five of my visits. I don't plan any changes, but you never know."
