USAAAB: Top Five Defense

SAN ANTONIO - Many on each defense stood out on Saturday in the U.S. Army All-American game and you can find out Scout's top five here.

A number of defensive prospects made plays in this game, but Scout talks about their top five here:

2012 U.S. Army Top Five Defense
Ishmael Adams – 5-10/190 - CB – Westlake Village, Ca. – Oaks Christian

USAAAB Performance: Adams had a couple of pass break-ups and an interception in this game. He showed he could make good breaks on the ball, he played aggressive, and he showed some toughness too. Adams is a true corner with the size and ability to play early.
Recruiting: Committed to UCLA

Jonathan Bullard – 6-4/260 – DE – Shelby, NC. - Crest

USAAAB Performance: Bullard was a force all afternoon. He closed down the line to make plays against the run, he registered a sack, and he used his hands well. He was very active in the trenches and he surprised some with his quickness. He is a kid that doesn't have to come off the field often.
Recruiting: Committed to Florida

Kendall Sanders – 6-0/175 – CB – Athens, Texas. - Athens

USAAAB Performance: Sanders has been recruited as a wide receiver and those hands showed in this game at corner. He has good length, he is a fluid kid in his back pedal, and he finished the game with two interceptions. He has the size and skill set you look for in a corner.
Recruiting: Committed to Texas

Shaquille Thompson – 6-2/210 – S – Sacramento, Ca. - Grant Union

USAAAB Performance: Thompson is a punishing safety. He loves to play physical, he closed on the ball really well in this game, and he had two of the biggest hits. He also tipped a ball in the secondary that almost led to an interception for the West Team.
Recruiting: Committed to California

Adolphus Washington – 6-6/250 – DE – Cincinnati, Ohio - Taft

USAAAB Performance: Washington was constantly in the backfield pressuring the quarterback. He had a sack, he had a couple of pressures, and he showed great speed off the ball. He still needs to add weight, work on disengaging better, and become stronger against the run.
Recruiting: Committed to Ohio State
