Football: Millikan’s Ryan Pellum Invited to Under Armour All-America Game

Millikan wide receiver Ryan Pellum was already established as a national recruit before he ever caught his first pass with the Rams, and the accolades continue to roll in for the junior-to-be. Pellum was recently invited to play in the 2024 Under Armour All-America Game, becoming the first player in program history to receive that coveted honor.

The invite came following the recent Under Armour Next camp in Columbus, Ohio, where Pellum also made time for a visit to Ohio State. That’s one of the 40 schools with offers into the explosive playmaker, who is part of a super talented 2024 class at Millikan.

Pellum is currently a four-star recruit and is ranked as the No. 34 player in his class by 247 Sports. He was named the Moore League Player of the Year after a great sophomore season for the Rams. Pellum led his team in catches (42), receiving yards (721) and receiving touchdowns (10) as a 10th grader, totaling 975 total yards and 12 touchdowns in eight games.

Pellum was already given All-American honors after last season, named to the MaxPreps Sophomore All-American second team as an all-purpose player. The invite to the UA All-American game comes to him two years early, as he’s still got two seasons to play at Millikan before he’d be showcasing his talents in Orlando.
