East Player to Watch: Jamil Kamara, ATH

Fans should not let the athlete tag fool them—Jamil Kamara is a wide receiver through and through.

Per 247Sports, the 6'2", 211-pound prospect caught 110 passes for 2,150 yards and 33 touchdowns in two seasons.

The same source reports the 4-star wideout is set to make his decision as to where he will play college ball during the game. Virginia, Wisconsin and Pittsburgh are the finalists.

Not only will Kamara light up the scoreboard, he will make a decision that may alter the fortunes of several collegiate programs for years to come.

West Player to Watch: Nyles Morgan, LB

Nyles Morgan is arguably the nation's top linebacker. He tallied 342 total tackles and 10 sacks in three years, per 247Sports. He was a 2014 All-American selection by 247Sports and named to the 2013 first-team All-USA by USA Today.

Morgan is one of several players who has yet to choose where he will play collegiate ball, but will make his highly anticipated decision during the bowl, according to 247Sports.

The final contestants for Morgan's services are Vanderbilt and Notre Dame. Outside of a general interest in seeing a stud linebacker of the future play, fans of those teams will have much more on the line.



The prestige of this game can be a tad overwhelming for fans and players alike. MVPs of the contest have included Vince Young, DeSean Jackson, Chris Wells, Tajh Boyd and Terrelle Pryor—to name a few.

While it is tough to tell which team packs more star power capable of putting their team ahead, history does not help, either. The East leads the all-time series, 7-6.

Offense will win the day here. Quarterback Jacob Park out of the East is arguably the most talented player of all and will have elite weapons like Jamil Kamara to throw to all day. That will be enough to give the East its second consecutive victory.


Prediction: East 24, West 17
