The Under Armour All-American rosters feature some of the nation's top offensive linemen. An extremely solid group of sled pushers will line up looking to showcase their talents against some of the most impressive defensive linemen the country has to offer.

The Texas Longhorn's class of 2009 will be well represented this week led by the trio of Mason Walters, Paden Kelley and Thomas Ashcroft.

Walters, the nation's number six rated offensive tackle, will push for the starting position at left tackle on the white squad.

Joining Walters at tackle will be Notre Dame commitment Zach Martin and Ohio State verbal pledge Jack Mewhort.

Georgia commitment Dallas Lee will look to bloster the white offensive on the interior along with uncommited prospects Quinton Washington and Pete White.

Washington is still considering several options and is not expected to decide his college destination until after taking some official visits following this weekend's All-Star game.

Pete White also expects to make his decision later in the process. White is considered one of the top offensive guards in attendance rating as the fourth best guard in the country.

USC commitment Kevin Graf will look to anchor the black squad in the trenches. Rated as the nation's number five offensive tackle, Grahf will look to shield the backside of future Trojan teammate Kevin Barkley.

Utah products Xavier Su'a-Filo and John Martinez will be two of the most highly scrutinized offense lineman at the event. The pair are still debating their college futures with LSU, UCLA and USC listed among their favorites.

The Bayou Bengals will be counting on Stavion Lowe, a summertime commitment, to help state their case to some of the uncommitted players in attendance.

Stan Hasiak of Hawaii will be doing his part to share the Bruins' prespective and sway some of his teammates this week towards UCLA.

Mark Brazinski will make his college announcement this weekend as part of the All-Star experience. The nation's top center prospect plans to decide Boston College, California, Florida State, North Carolina and Pennsylvania.

J.K. Jay and Taylor Lewan recently made commitments to Clemson and Michigan respectively, so their focus is totally on the game this week and their futures. Both will look to push for first team positions at tackle.
