The 2013 U.S. Army All-American Bowl drew a crowd of 40,133 to the Alamodome, and was the most-watched sporting event on television over the weekend, excluding the NFL playoffs.
QB Kyle Allen - Scottsdale (Ariz.) Desert Mountain
HT: 6'3 | WT: 195
Pos. Rating: 1
Committed to Texas A&M
Scout Eval - Allen is a dual-threat quarterback who can excel in any system. He's a good athlete who runs to set up the pass by rolling out; he has remarkable Aaron Rodgers like accuracy when he throws on the run. Has enough arm to stand in the pocket and deliver the 20 yard out pattern and has good poise to keep his vision down field. Good frame to continue adding weight. Can pick apart a defense or throw it deep. A gifted passer and athlete.
WR Mark Andrews - Scottsdale (Ariz.) Desert Mountain
HT: 6'6 | WT: 220
Pos. Rating: 11
Committed to Oklahoma
Scout Eval - Andrews has tight end size and assuming he continues to grow and mature physically, it's tough to see him staying as a pure receiver. It doesn't matter where he lines up or what position he's labeled, Andrews is a matchup nightmare for a defense. He can outrun any linebacker and makes plays down the field and is far too big and strong for a corner or safety to check. He has great hands and will be lethal in the red zone. Receiver is definitely his desired position and that's where the Sooners will give him first shot.
RB Sony Michel - Plantation (Fla.) American Heritage
HT: 5'11 | WT: 205
Pos. Rating: 2
Committed to Georgia
Scout Eval - Michel is an elite running back that will be college-ready the day he steps on campus. He has a great blend of power, speed, and finesse when he gets the football. He runs behind his pads well, he can side-step would-be tacklers, and he has the speed to get to the perimeter. Michel has great balance and vision along with good hands out of the backfield. It looks like the game slows down for him. He is the total package.
