    Adam Myers-White Profile
    AdamMyers-White, a 6-foot-3, 190-pound, safety, from Hamilton, Ohio was one of the most sought after prospects in the nation in 2004,” said Chris Pool, Midwest Recruiting Analyst for Adam is a big safety who can run, flip his hips in coverage and hit like a linebacker. Myers-White has been surprising in San Antonio this week. All of the experts at felt that Adam was a good player but he took his game to the next level this week. Myers-White chose the Vols over Nebraska and others..

    D.J. Hord - Scout (SuperPrep)

    D.J. Hord Profile
    Kansas City Rockhurst’s D.J. Hord is a fantastic wide receiver that just pulled the commitment trigger to Notre Dame on NBC during the U.S. Army All-American East-West all-star clash. What he brings to the table as a wideout is a nice height/weight/forty package, but someone who has a great pair of mitts, runs excellent routes and can stretch you deep with his speed, but more importantly, bring it in.

    Dace Richardson - Scout (SuperPrep)

    Dace Richardson Profile
    “Dace Richardson was one of the most sought after tackle prospects in the nation. He had scholarship offers from coast to coast.” Pool said. “College recruiters love Richardson’s upside. He’s a raw talent who will be molded by the Iowa staff into a dominating offensive lineman. Richardson is strong and he has extremely long arms. It seems like it takes two weeks for defensive lineman to run around Dace on a pass rush. The 6-foot-6, 300-pounder, from Wheaton (Ill.) Warrenville-South is a “Top 5” offensive lineman.

    Tony Moeaki - Scout (SuperPrep)

    All American Commitment

    Tony Moeaki Profile
    TIGHT END TONY MOEAKI This kid has flat out impressed each and every analyst in attendance, and some of his catches have left us not only impressed, but often times speechless. He looks as if he could come into college next year and be on a two deep roster, and he speed and agility are rare for his position. Moeaki will come into a favorable situation at Iowa, as the Hawkeyes love to utilize their tight end. Moeaki's future is extremely bright at Iowa, as Iowa's Dallas Clark was the 2002 Mackey Award winner. Moeaki has the potential to have one of the best careers that any tight end at Iowa has enjoyed, and considering their rich history at the position, that is saying a lot.

    "Tony Moeaki, a 6-foot-4, 240-pounder, from Wheaton (ill.) Warrenville-South came down to San Antonio as the #3 tight end but after observing practices from both the East and the West this week, Moeaki may leave #1." Chris Pool said. "Moeaki has been extremely impressive in practices leading up to the U.S. Army All-American Bowl. Tony is the total tight end package. East quarterback Greg Paulus said that Moeaki is Tony Gonzalez right now. Moeaki has the size of a tight end and the speed to line up wide and in the slot. He made some great catches in San Antonio during practice week and he showed the ability to get open in the zone and create mismatches in the defensive backfields. He became the main target for the East quarterbacks in practice. If you need to move the chains, Moeaki is the go-to-guy.

    Ryan Bain - Scout (SuperPrep)

    Ryan Bain Profile
    DEFENSIVE LINEMAN RYAN BAIN Bain is a pleasant surprise to some in San Antonio, but to those who have seen him play, his ability to compete against the best of the best is no big deal. It's not that many didn't think he was a player, but his balance, low center of gravity and drive in the trenches has been impressive, especially for a prospect who had never played on the defensive line prior to this week in San Antonio.
    "Ryan Bain came down to San Antonio with a chip on his shoulder. Pool said. "The 6-foot-2, 265-pound, defensive lineman from Bolingbrook, Illinois never played with his hand on the ground until this week. He was a linebacker in high school. The transition to the defensive line has been smooth for Ryan. His coaches loved his fire this week as well as his upside. Bain went up against an offensive line unit in practice that averaged 6-foot-6 and 325-pounds. Ryan more than held his own and even split double teams. Bain is extremely strong and he's receptive to coaching. He has strong legs, stays low to the ground and uses his hands extremely well."

    MN Tackle Will Take Big Ten Visit Next - Scout (SuperPrep)

    MN Tackle Will Take Big Ten Visit Next

    Paul Backowski Profile
    Paul Backowski, a 6-foot-7, 260-pound offensive tackle from Foley (MN) High who had committed to Indiana this summer, is visiting Colorado this weekend. Backwoski, who was named to the Associated Press All-State first team and St. Cloud Times All-Area team, will visit Indiana next weekend, according to his mother. He scored 19 points in Foley's 97-81 basketball loss to Princeton last night and flew out to Colorado at nine this morning. Backowski had 48 "pancake" blocks for running team that featured a 1,400-yard rusher. He is a two-time All-Rum River Conference selection and was named the Conference's Most Valuable Lineman.

    Dan Doering - Scout (SuperPrep)

    All American Commitment
    by Jon Miller of, January 15, 2005 at 1:33pm ET
    Dan Doering Profile
    OFFENSIVE LINEMAN DAN DOERING He has shown great footwork and hand skills thus far in San Antonio. He might be the best technical offensive lineman at this event. Dan is clearly a student of the game, as he has worked hard to 'get it right'. He will not be counted upon to contribute as a true freshman at Iowa, he is an obvious coaches dream, because he soaks up instruction like a sponge.
    “Dan Doering is arguably the best tackle prospect in the country,” said Chris Pool, Midwest Recruiting Analyst for “The 6-foot-7, 290-pounder, from Barrington, Illinois received his first of 30 scholarship offers as a sophomore. Doering showed his athleticism in San Antonio by moving inside and playing guard. He bends and sinks his hips better than any of the top linemen we’ve seen this year. Could play tackle or guard for the Hawks.”

    Raymond Henderson - Scout (SuperPrep)

    All American Commitment
    by Scott Kennedy of, January 15, 2005 at 1:22pm ET
    Raymond Henderson Profile
    Raymond Henderson, a 6-foot-5, 260-pound, defensive lineman from Oak Creek, Wisconsin has given Tennessee his verbal commitment. Henderson chose the Vols over Iowa. In Henderson, Tennessee is getting a defensive lineman that will probably add weight and move inside to play defensive tackle. In San Antonio, he wasn’t moving very well and that was due to a groin pull during the first day of practice. Henderson has a huge upside, he’s far from the finished product and could get some playing time in Knoxville in a couple of years.

    Was anybody impressed with him in the AAA game? He may have had good practices, but on more than 1 occasion he was manhandles by the west's D line.

    Doering was one of the least impressive OL at the game...there were several plays where he got spun around and flat out whooped.

    Doering reminded me a little of Derek Morris.

    More than one of the mentioned kids was exposed at the AAA game.

    NJ-Buckeye They Hate Us cuz They Ain't Us.. Banners are good Staff Member

    not sure this game is very 'fair' about exposing kids... this may be the first time many of these kids have faced an opposing team that is so skilled and FAST at every position... they'd need more than a week to adapt to the speed...

    and if you notice, most of the 'exposed' is offensive... which is understandable.. they are the ones that need the adaption time... defense is always better early... because so much is solo... and not part of a coordinated effort in order for the player to excel....

    Actually, the AAA game is set up so that individual players can excel on both offense and defense, so I'm not buying the "defense is solo" argument. The opposing defense is not allowed to blitz, and one of the main reasons for that is so that offensive linemen, tight ends, and backs can showcase what they can do one-on-one without having to worry about picking up an additional defender. And in the secondary, they're forced to play man-to-man so that both the WR's and DB's can show off their skills.
