ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — 

Auburn High linebacker Reuben Foster was the defensive MVP for Team Nitro in its 16-3 loss to Team Highlight in the Under Armour All-America Game on Friday.

Foster committed to Auburn, but is now looking at Georgia, Alabama and Washington.

Wide receiver Robert Foster, an Alabama commit from Monaca, Pa., caught four passes for 55 yards to lead Team Highlight.

Autauga Academy graduate and Alabama commitment O.J. Howard was on the roster.

Sean Covington kicked three field goals and Josh McNeil caught a touchdown pass to help Team Highlight.

McNeil, a tight end from Durham N.C., caught a 6-yard scoring pass from Salt Lake City quarterback Cooper Bateman early in the second quarter to give Highlight a 10-0 lead. Bateman and McNeil both committed to Alabama at one point, but McNeil is currently favoring LSU.

Team Nitro cut it to 10-3 on Ryan Santoso' s 44-yard field goal, but the 270-pound kicker who is committed to Minnesota missed two other field goals.

Covington, a UCLA commit out of St. Petersburg, kicked field goals of 31, 30 and 25 yards and also averaged 40.8 yards on eight punts.

Tampa cornerback Vernon Hargreaves III, headed to the University of Florida, was selected the MVP of Team Highlight.

There were five commitments in the game: Jackson, La., linebacker Kendell Beckwith committed to LSU over Alabama; New York defensive end Ebenezer Ogundeko committed to Clemson over Florida and Syracuse; Lawrenceville, Ga., linebacker Trey Johnson chose Ohio State over Auburn; Mission Viejo, Calif., cornerback Max Redfield committed to Notre Dame over USC and Ohio State; and Seffner, Fla., safety Leon McQuay III committed to USC over Vanderbilt and Florida State.
