National prospects from all over the country are participating in the Under Armour All-America game and Scout national analysts will have their eyes on them...

Which prospect from a skill position from your region are you most looking forward to see throughout the week?

Scott Kennedy – Director of Scouting
Of the best players in the country, the one I haven't seen in person is Jabrill Peppers. He could be used in so many ways by the staff from cornerback, running back, receiver, return man, safety, wild cat quarterback, you name it. A full week of practice will let us see him do a variety of things.

Greg Biggins – National Recruiting Analyst (West)
Adoree Jackson has dominated the competition out West (Gardena, Calif. – Serra) since his sophomore year and is one of the most explosive players the state has produced in the last decade. Seeing how he compares with other great players from across the country should be a lot of fun.

Brian Dohn – National Recruiting Analyst (Northeast)
I want to see how Maryland commit and Washington (D.C.) St. John’s College quarterback Will Ulmer fares. He is crazy athletic and can get yards on the run, but he struggles with his accuracy. Can a week of coaching and working with some of the best players in the nation help him improve to where he can honestly be the Terps’ quarterback of the future?

Brandon Huffman – National Recruiting Analyst (West)
Adoree Jackson is the most electric player to come from the West since DeAnthony Thomas and is one of the rare West Coast players who has the “SEC speed” we hear about all the time. So Jackson will have his chance to show what he can do against all the elite SEC recruits in Orlando. He was outstanding at The Opening, which was littered with several national prospects and this will be another chance for him to do so.
Jamie Newberg – National Recruiting Analyst (Florida)
Which prospect at a skill position from your region are you most excited to see on the big stage in Under Armour Game? That’s a tough question with so many elite prospects in this one. But I will say Adoree Jackson (Gardena, Calif./Serra). When my two good friends, Greg Biggins and Brandon Huffman, compare his game to DeAnthony Thomas at the same stage, then I know he’s something I can’t wait to see. Thomas was very special in high school and a true five-star game at every position he played.

Greg Powers – National Recruiting Analyst (Midlands)
There are not really any skill players on the roster from the Midlands at receiver or running back, but there are a pair of quarterbacks in Arkansas commit Rafe Peavey and Oklahoma commit Justice Hansen. Both are winners, who can get the job done. It will be interesting to watch Peavey in particular, because he is a player whom has been on the cusp of the fourth star for a while now. Will his performance in this game be enough to give him that bump?

Chad Simmons – National Recruiting Analyst (Southeast)
Dalvin Cook is a new five-star running back on Scout and he has a chance to cap off a huge senior season with a strong performance in this game. He has added good weight, he has blossomed into a more complete back over the past year, and he still has elite speed..
