The U.S. Army All-American Bowl is a chance for top recruits from around the nation to show college football fans what all the fuss is about. It holds an even greater importance for prospects who have yet to make their college choice.
Quarterback Max Browne, who's committed to USC, and Texas A&M wide receiver commit Ricky Seals-Jones are among the big-name players in attendance for the marquee game. The duo will pair up to lead the West squad against Kenny Bigelow and his East teammates.
Here's a look at all the key information for Saturday's game, the rosters for each team and a quick breakdown of some players to keep an eye out for. It should be a terrific showcase of the talented football stars of the future.
Where: Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas
When: Saturday, Jan. 5 at 1 p.m. ET
East Roster and Analysis
The East's offense is led by a pair of dynamic running backs, Greg Bryant and Derrick Henry. Given the upcoming BCS National Championship Game, it's fitting that the two have committed to Notre Dame and Alabama, respectively.
Joining Bryant and Henry is an extremely talented group of quarterbacks, led by Ryan Burns and Asiantii Woulard. The latter of which still hasn't made his college decision, meaning fans from Kentucky, South Florida and NC State, among others, will be tuning in to see him.
On defense, the East features defensive back Kendall Fuller, a ball-hawk committed to Virginia Tech, and the previously mentioned Bigelow, a dominant defensive lineman. His ability to wreak havoc in the opponents' backfield should shine through on Saturday.
West Roster and Analysis
|84||Torii Hunter Jr.||WR|
The aforementioned tandem of Browne and Seals-Jones will be joined by running back Thomas Tyner and wide receiver Derrick Griffin on the West's offense, giving the team a tremendous group of playmakers. Unfortunately, Torii Hunter Jr. has been forced out due to injury.
Other potential stars on the West offense include versatile back Altee Tenpenny, an Alabama commit, and tight end DeSean Smith, who's bound for rival LSU. All told, it's a deep group that gives the West an edge heading into the game.
The defense doesn't lack star power, either. Jaylon Smith, one of the nation's most hyped recruits, headlines the unit along with undecided fellow linebacker Mike Mitchell. In the defensive backfield, Su'a Cravens is the player to watch for the West.
