Four teams that appeared in the Preseason MaxPreps Top 25 high school football rankings will take the field Aug. 26-29 as part of the 2021 ESPN GEICO Kickoff. Here's a quick glance at the complete schedule:
Perhaps the biggest storyline among the seven games will be the status of Southlake Carroll star quarterback Quinn Ewers
. Regarded as the No. 1 recruit in the Class of 2022, reports earlier this week
indicate he is leaning toward graduating early and enrolling at Ohio State in August so he can take advantage of NIL opportunities.
The Southlake Carroll-Highland Park game will be played at AT&T Stadium in Arlington.
The IMG Academy-Bishop Sycamore contest will also be played at a unique venue as the teams will hook it up at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium in Canton.
