The strength of the East defense is at the linebacking corp, and Georgia Commitment Akeem Hebron has been making big plays all week.
USC Commitment Antwine Perez looks to be one of the starting safeties for the East squad.
Notre Dame commitment Barry Gallup has shown excellent quickness and could get a shot to return punts in the game on Saturday.
Brandon Spikes is another big part of the linebacker group. It's hard to pinpoint just which linebacker has been most impressive, but Spikes' name would have to be mentioned.
Auburn Commitment Bart Eddins has been battling a shoulder injury, but he has still made plays from his defensive line position.
Florida Commitments Tim Tebow and Carl Johnson have fun before the second practice session.
C.J. Spiller has been hobbled by an injured ankle from the Cal/Florida All-Star game, but he looked like he was back near 100% today. Spiller showed his trademark burst and change of direction. Spiller is still considering Florida State, Florida, Miami, Clemson, and USC.
Roomates this week and possibly teammates next year, Florida State Commitment Myron Rolle grabs Spiller.
Pittsburgh Commitment Dorin Dickerson looks the ball in.
Part of the Walking Wounded for the East, Jacques McClendon missed today's practice with an ankle injury that he suffered yesterday. McClendon said he expected to be back at practice on Wednesday.
The East Running Backs are outstanding, and Notre Dame Commitment James Aldridge is one to keep an eye on Saturday.
Jarred Fayson has been bothered by a hamstring injury the past two months, and he re-injured it again on the first day of practice. His status for the game is doubtful.
Jarrell Miller has been hampered by a groin injury this week, but he has been fighting through it all week. Miller is still considering Florida, North Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and Virginia Tech.
Georgia Commitment Justin Anderson has been working at guard all week.
Scout.com's #1 Defensive Tackle Micah Johnson (Kentucky Commitment) has shown up at Texas 20 pounds lighter than he weighed in January of last year determined to be a linebacker. He has proven without a shadow of a doubt that he can play linebacker on the college level. Where does he rank at linebacker? Scout.com has some decisions to make.
Florida State Commitment Myron Rolle has spent a lot of time covering the slot receivers, and he has lived up to advanced billing. He is big enough to play linebacker, and athletic enough to play corner.
The hit of the day came when Myron Rolle hit James Aldridge on the sideline and drove him to the bench. Aldridge hit his ribs on the bench, but everyone got up healthy.
Florida Commitment Percy Harvin is electric with the ball in his hand, and look for the East to try and get Harvin in space.
Ricky Sapp was out of practice today with a leg injury. He said he hopes to be back on Thursday, but seeing him limp around the field made that return seem doubtful.
Robert Rose has a ton of talent, and he will line up for defensive end for the East.
Are you sure you don't want to come block for me? Tim Tebow talks with fellow Floridians Dan Wenger and Sam Young. Wenger is already committed to Notre Dame, and the Irish are in the thick of it with Young.
Tebow's most valuable asset in this game could be his legs. Tebow is an excellent runner and look for him to make plays on the run on Saturday.
USC Commitment Vidal Hazelton is a physical wide receiver that makes plays catching and blocking. An all around receiver that many on the Scout team feel is the #1 wide receiver in the country.
Ohio State Commitment Chris Wells walks back to the huddle with Sam Young. Wells is the #1 running back in the country, and Young is the #2 lineman in the country.
Notre Dame Commitment Zach Frazer will lead the East with Tim Tebow. Frazer has a huge frame and a good arm.
