Army: Tuesday West best by position

SAN ANTONIO, Texas- Several of the top prospects in the country were among the best at their positions during the second West practice for the 2014 U.S. Army All-American Bowl on Tuesday at the Blossom Athletic Center.

Kyle Allen continued to show why he's the top-ranked pro-style quarterback prospect in the 2014 class during Tuesday's West practice for the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.

QB Kyle Allen

The Texas A&M commit and the nation’s No. 1 pro-style quarterback prospect was the one signal caller during the practice sessions that was able to get things going downfield. He got better as the day wore on.

RB Christian McCaffrey

The Stanford legacy and commit and NFL legacy continued to make impressive plays. McCaffrey was the best running back and perhaps offensive playmaker on the West squad by far. One of the final selections for this year’s game, McCaffrey is performing like a player with a ton to prove and so far, he’s proven it.

WR Jalen Brown

There were several moments of brilliance for the West receivers, but Brown was the best combination of consistency and big-play ability. He simply has great hands and is always in the right place at the right time. LSU commit Trey Quinn was just as consistent, we just wish they’d throw him a few down the field. Oklahoma commit Mark Andrews and Iowa State commit Allen Lazard also had good days.

OL Toa Lobendahn

The USC commit, who is one of the more polished interior offensive line prospects in this entire class, was outstanding and edged out uncommitted offensive tackle Brian Wallace, uncommitted lineman Damian Mama and Wisconsin commit Jaden Gault for top honors.

LB Derik Calhoun



Calhoun, an Arizona State commit, was all over the place on Tuesday, blowing up several plays in the backfield and getting to the right place at the right time. Calhoun also told 247Sports following practice that he’s not considering any other programs at this time (he was a USC commit before Lane Kiffin was fired). He’s going to be quite a player for the Sun Devils.

DB Damon Webb



Webb, a cornerback, locked his man down most of the day and while he didn’t have the wow plays that say UCLA commit Jaleel Wadood (big interception) had, there’s something to be said for consistently not allowing receivers to get open. After all, that’s the point, right? The Ohio State commit continues to perform at a high level every time we’ve seen him- camp, practice, etc.

DL Josh Frazier

Frazier, a 6-foot-4, 330-pound Alabama commit, was dominant during the Tuesday session. He’s tough to block, extremely athletic and was as skilled at rushing the passer (several tipped passes) as he was stuffing run plays. He stood out among a good group of defensive linemen- which included a great showing by 247Sports Composite Top 50 prospect Malik McDowell.

The 2014 U.S. Army All-American Bowl kicks off at 1 p.m. Saturday from the Alamodome. The game will be broadcast live on NBC.
