Many of the top college football prospects will compete in the same game on Saturday afternoon as part of the U.S. Army All-American Bowl. The contest features the nation’s best high school players that will be making their way to the next level in 2016.
Throughout its 15 years, the U.S. Army All-American Bowl has featured some of the best NFL players over the last decade. Andrew Luck, DeMarco Murray, Jamaal Charles and Patrick Peterson are just a few pros that have played in the game, and Saturday’s contest will almost assuredly produce more future NFL stars.
Eight of the top 20 recruits in the 2016 ESPN 300 are set to take the field at the Alamodome in San Antonio on Saturday afternoon. The highest-ranked recruit is Dexter Lawrence, who will play defensive tackle for Clemson next year.
Much of the attention on Saturday will surround tight end Isaac Nauta. He might be the best offensive playmaker in the 2016 class, and he still hasn’t decided where he will play college football. The tight end has narrowed his choices down to Michigan, Georgia and Alabama, and he’ll announce his final decision during Saturday’s game.
Three quarterbacks that will be in San Antonio stand out as potential stars at the next level. K.J. Costello, who is committed to Stanford, might have the edge as the best signal caller in the 2016 class. But an argument can also be made for Jacob Eason and Shea Patterson, who will also get a chance to show what they can do on Saturday.
