The Blue-Grey National All Star Classic will kick off Saturday night at 8 p.m. ET, as some of the top high-school football players in the country will compete one last time to impress college scouts. 

These players might not be 5-star recruits, but they've worked their tails off to get here, and they'll be sure to put on an impressive display in Raymond James Stadium.

Check out some of the impressive prospects on display in this game. 


Mike Richardson, QB, Marble Falls (Texas) High School, South

Richardson gained some notoriety earlier this season when he set the Texas single-game record for passing yards, with 715 and seven touchdowns.

While Richardson may never again put up a gaudy stat line like that, he did excel all season, throwing 31 touchdowns compared to just three interceptions. 

The talented quarterback is also a solid rusher, racking up 354 yards and five touchdowns on the ground this season.

Richardson is currently on the radar of schools such as Baylor, SMU and North Texas. 


Winston Lee, RB, Hudson (N.Y.) High School, North

Though the talented Lee didn't get many opportunities this season, he made the most of his limited carries, gaining 725 yards on just 86 carries. 

Lee really caught fire towards the end of the season, running for 397 yards and five touchdowns on just 24 carries.

What makes Lee special is his raw athleticism: Along with a 4.3-second 40-yard dash, Lee also possesses an 11'6" standing broad jump. That raw athleticism is what got Lee invited to the game in the first place. Expect him to put that athleticism display come game time. 


Jeff Richardson, WR, McKinley (Ohio) High School, North

Jeff Richardson looks like the second coming of Tavon Austin, the talented receiver out of West Virginia. Richardson possesses similar 4.3 speed, in addition to being a true threat as both a receiver and a runner.

With 242 rushing yards and 514 receiving yards his senior season, Richardson should be a productive player in all phases of the game for the North side. 

The 155-pound Richardson will need to put on some weight before he makes it to the highest level of college football, but his speed and playmaking ability will be sure to tantalize on Saturday.
