The U.S. Army All-American Bowl has brought up several questions for
debate and the Scout Recruiting Team in San Antonio address the one question they
want to see answered this week.
Old Tappan (N.J.) athlete Devin Fuller is ranked as a quarterback in the Scout.com rankings, but we will likely get a chance to see him play multiple positions in this game and in the weeks practice sessions. We hope to get a clearer picture on exactly where he fits.
This query was making the rounds on message boards on New Year's Eve, proving that recruiting fans can never get enough when it comes to discussing their favorite prospects. The obvious choice, of course, is Arik Armstead. After all, the 6-foot-8 offensive tackle is Scout.com's top-rated player in the nation. Armstead
has talked about playing defense on the next level, but National Recruiting
Analyst Brandon Huffman believes the California behemoth has the most upside on
offense. A couple of other Cali five-stars - defensive tackle Ellis McCarthy and
safety Shaquille Thompson - also were prominently-mentioned in the discussion.
McCarthy is the nation's 33rd-ranked prospect and Thompson checks in at No. 11.
All three are uncommitted, which adds even more intrigue and drama to the
The Army All-American Bowl will feature the nation's No. 1 and No. 2 ranked in Dorial Green-Beckham and Stefon
Diggs respectively. We saw Julio Jones and A.J. Green go at it in 2008 and then
Kyle Prater and Robert Woods dueled in 2010. So 2012 could see
Green-Beckham solidify his spot or Diggs make a surprising jump.
Johnathan Gray in his own state, the Texas A&M back is a five-star as well, and
I personally saw him twice this summer, at The Opening in Oregon and at Gridiron
Kings in Orlando, and both times I saw him, there wasn't a more electric, or
tougher player, than Williams. He reminds me of Maurice Jones-Drew, who I
covered when I first started out- smaller, but physical (he's obviously not as
thick as Jones-Drew is, now, but has that same body type). For his size,
he'll not just run around you, but through you. Williams is the top back
in this game, and with other top backs playing in games around the country, this
is Williams' chance to shine.
