For more than 13 years, the U.S. Army All-American Bowl has been the nation’s premier high school football game, serving as the preeminent launching pad for America’s future college and NFL stars.
Adrian Peterson and Andrew Luck made their national debuts as U.S. Army All-Americans. In the 2013 NFL Draft, there were a total of 8 U.S. Army All-American Bowl Alumni drafted in the first round. 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.
OG Natrell Curtis - Phoenix (Ariz.) Mountain Pointe
HT: 6'2 | WT: 300
Pos. Rating: 15
Committed to Washington
Scout Eval - Curtis is not just one of the region's top guard prospects but a solid defensive tackle prospect as well. In fact, Curtis said half of his offers have come in as a defensive lineman. We like him on offense and feel he brings a lot to the table. He's very tough, light on his feet and plays with a mean streak. He shows great lateral mobility, competes very hard and has the ideal mindset of someone you want playing in the box.
WR Jalen Brown - Phoenix (Ariz.) Mountian Pointe
HT: 6'2 | WT: 190
Pos. Rating: 8
Committed to Oregon
Scout Eval - Brown is arguably the most polished WR in the West. He’s silky smooth in everything he does and the game looks easy for him. He has good size and uses his it well to create separation from smaller corners. He has great hands and catches everything away from his body. He’s quicker than he looks off the line, is a very smooth, polished route runner and his body control and ability to make the acrobatic catch in traffic is another big plus.
QB Drew Barker - Hebron (Ky.) Conner
HT: 6'4 | WT: 205
Pos. Rating: 10
Committed to Kentucky
Scout Eval - After putting together a good junior season, Barker went out this summer and showed he belonged among the best at the Elite 11. Barker has great physical size and the ability to stand in the pocket or rollout to keep a play alive. Shows great arm strength and the ability to make the throws needed at the college level. While not a speed runner, Barker shows the ability to scramble for important yardage or just to keep a play alive until he finds an open receiver.
OLB Richard Yeargin - Ft. Lauderdale (Fla.) Nova Scotia
HT: 6'4 | WT: 215
Pos. Rating: 15
Committed to Notre Dame
Scout Eval - Yeargin is big and very long with a frame to bulk up and add a ton of weight. He possesses good short area quickness. This is an outside linebacker that plays with a burst and can locate the ball quickly. Yeargin shows good range. He’s good at shedding blockers and getting to the ball. Yeargin does a nice job of playing in space, showing good feet and balance and the ability to stay with smaller players. He's a good pass rusher.
WR Markell Pack - Purvis (Ms.) High
HT: 6'3 | WT: 195
Pos. Rating: 33
Committed to Florida State
Scout Eval - Pack is a physical wideout who consistently catches the ball in traffic. He can go across the middle, he can get down the field, and he can high-point the ball from his position. He has the frame to add another 20-25 pounds, he has good initial quickness off the line, and he can block down the field. He can work on his top end speed and his overall route-running skills. He is a tough receiver with strength and hands.
DT Travonte Valentine - Hialeah (Fla.) Champagnat
HT: 6'4 | WT: 295
Pos. Rating: 14
Committed to Miami (FL)
Scout Eval - Valentine possesses rare athleticism for a jumbo athlete. He is capable of playing tight end and can flat out move. At 6-foot-4, 300 pounds he has the potential to be a difference maker inside and a player that generates a ton of pressure in the backfield. Valentine needs to improve his technique including his pad level and ability to use his hands, but he is a rare physical specimen with Sunday potential.
WR Jamil Kamara - Virginia Beach (Va.)
HT: 6'2 | WT: 205
Pos. Rating: 21
Wisconsin, Michigan State, Pittsburgh, Virginia
Scout Eval - Kamara has good size and is very physical. One-on-one, he is extremely tough to cover. Kamara finds ways to get open and does a nice job of going to get the ball in the air at its highest point. Blessed with long arms and soft hands, Kamara makes tough catches look easy. I expect him to be a major playmaker at the college level.
