Jacob Park, QB, East


East quarterback Jacob Park is rated as the second-best prospect from the state of South Carolina among the Class of 2014 and committed to Georgia in June 2013, according to

The 6'3", 200-pound signal-caller had also received offers from other SEC powerhouses like Alabama and Auburn. As ESPN recruiting reporter Damon Sayles points out, Park will be a player to keep an eye out for on Saturday afternoon as he looks to lead the East to a second consecutive victory. 

In addition to boasting a strong and accurate arm, the Goose Creek, S.C. native is mobile and a very tough runner with the potential to develop into a dual-threat quarterback down the road. 

For now, though, pay close attention to Park's accuracy. Although he has room for improvement, he possesses the rare ability to hit receivers in stride despite being off balance or under duress. 


Jamil Kamara, WR/ATH, East

Bishop Sullivan Catholic High School star Jamil Kamara is listed as an athlete heading into Saturday's Army All-American Bowl, but he will likely star as a dynamic wide receiver for the East squad. 

After all, the 4-star recruit has caught more than 100 passes over the past two seasons in high school, racking up more than 2,100 yards and 33 touchdowns, according to

Kamara will likely be catching passes from Park on Saturday. And what will stand out above all else when watching the Virginia Beach, Va. native is his physicality. Kamara isn't a speedster who's going to break away from many defenders, but his combination of size and strength make him a special player. 

The coveted athlete, who is expected to commit to either Virginia, Wisconsin or Pittsburgh this weekend, also possesses an exceptional pair of hands that allow him to bring down nearly every ball in his vicinity. 


Nyles Morgan, ILB, West


If you're not familiar with West linebacker Nyles Morgan, you'll want to tune into Saturday's Army All-American Bowl. Arguably one of the top inside linebackers nationally among the Class of 2014, the Crete, Ill. native is a stud defender with virtually endless potential at the next level.

At 6'1", 225 pounds, Morgan can play sideline to sideline as well as hold his own in coverage.

Morgan also displays excellent instincts and does a tremendous job of recognizing the play, wrapping up ball-carriers and bringing them down quickly.

Morgan is still uncommitted ahead of Saturday's showcase, but he has narrowed his list and is expected to choose between Vanderbilt and Notre Dame this weekend.
