247Sports, JuniorRank team for bowl

247Sports and JuniorRank have entered into a broad cross-promotional and information sharing relationship, which includes 247Sports coming aboard as a selection partner for the second annual Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl.

The national all-star game, which will be played in early 2013, is the only game of its type in the Pacific Time Zone and featured many of the nation’s top overall prospects in its first year of existence. The United States Marine Corps is the title sponsor of the game, with the location to be announced later this spring.

“We are excited about the opportunity to recognize these outstanding young men on a national level with such a credible and well-respected organization,” JuniorRank founder Shaon Berry said. “247Sports’ addition to the Semper Fi Bowl All-American selection committee only makes sense as we continue to identify the nation’s very best student athletes.”

“We’ve been given a great opportunity to work with JuniorRank to put together another talent-filled Semper Fi All-American Bowl this year,” 247Sports Chief Operating Officer Noah Stanley said. “We love what the Semper Fidelis Bowl stands for and teaches these young men. Shaon Berry and his organization are true professionals and a great organization to partner with.”

The agreement also includes a partnership between 247Sports and JuniorRank on an elite “Prodigy Camp” this summer. It will be an invite-only, top prospect event that will showcase top 3 -5 star  talent from the Class of 2014 and below.

"247Sports has done a great job of identifying the nation’s top talent and we believe that the 2012 JuniorRank Prodigy Camp powered by 247Sports promises to be the finest collection of young talent assembled anywhere in the country,” Berry said.

“Our partnership with the JuniorRank Prodigy Camp makes it so much easier to recognize the top talent in the nation early,” Stanley said. “It gives us a big leg up on the competition when we can see the best of the best competing against each from such an early age.”

247Sports also is a selection partner for the Semper Fidelis Proving Grounds National Combine and the Junior Rank Diamond Flight Camps, which are used in the selection process for the Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl.
