Class of 2017 Stanford tight end commit Colby Parkinson received his game jersey for the US Army All-American Bowl at Oaks Christian High School (Westlake Village, Calif.) on Tuesday morning. Parkinson's presentation was one of a small handful just like it that kicked off Day 1 of the game's annual Selection Tour, which, in 2016, headed to 190 high schools in over 35 states.

The 6'7, 230-pound pass-catcher is ranked by most recruiting services as a top-two tight end in the nation.
The game will take place on January 17, 2017 at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. Parkinson will take the field as a member of the "West" Roster alongside and against a host of Stanford commits and targets who will also get their own jerseys later this fall. A complete list is below.
