After the excitement on and off the field at the Under Armour All-American Game earlier this week, the anticipation building up on Saturday is only heightened.
The 12th annual U.S. Army All-American Bowl promises to bring every bit of the punch its counterpart brought on Thursday.
Though this time the rosters are arguably more impressive.
With wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham and offensive tackle Arik Armstead headlining the event—the No. 1 overall recruits on Rivals and Scout, respectively—there won't be a shortage of talent.
But let's not kid ourselves, the juiciest bits of the event will happen on the sidelines, where some of the top prospects from the 2012 class will be announcing their college commitments live to a national audience.
Barry Sanders Jr. is expected to officially reveal he's headed to Stanford. Yes, that Barry Sanders' son.
We're also hoping to get a resolution to the Shaq Thompson courtship that's has Cal, Notre Dame, Washington, Arizona State and USC. Thompson—the nation's top ranked safety—has repeatedly stated he'll make his announcement at the game.
He and Sanders Jr. aren't alone, though. Twelve other prospects are expected to announce their commitments today.
