      Marlon Humphrey will officially start his senior season with the Hoover Bucs later this month.

      But Humphrey is also part of another team: the USA Today preseason high school All-America team.

      He's the only player from Alabama on the roster.

      Humphrey is rated as a five-star defensive back prospect and was named the defensive MVP of the Rivals Five-Star Challenge which was held in Chicago earlier this summer.

      Humphrey has not made his college choice although it's believed that he favors the Crimson Tide. His father Bobby was a star running back at Alabama in the 1980s. Humphrey has also visited Florida State and Mississippi State, and may be planning a recruiting trip to South Carolina.

      Humphrey is also a standout track athlete and plans to compete in both sports at the college level.
