I feel like this class lacks the premier defensive end that we've had in the past. JaDaveon Clowney, Robert Nkemdiche, Mario Edwards, Noah Spence, etc... but there are a lot of players who have the potential to be that type of player. Lorenzo Carter has the potential, but the production hasn't always been there against top offensive linemen. I think Chad Thomas has the potential to be the best end at this game and in the country, and I'm looking forward to seeing him in person again.

Casey Tucker is rated the top tackle out West and shows up very well on film. This will be my first time seeing him in person so I'm curious to see how well he moves around, how tough he is physically and how he holds up against some of the unreal athleticism coming off the edge in both the practices and the game itself.
Brian Dohn – National Recruiting Analyst (Northeast)
On the offensive line, it's uncommitted four-star tackle Damian Prince of Forestville (Md.) Bishop McNamara. I haven't seen him as much as the other lineman in the region in this game, and I want to see if he can keep his intensity for the week of practice and the game. On the defensive side, I cannot wait to see defensive tackle Andrew Brown from Chesapeake (Va.) Oscar Brown and a Virginia commit. He is a five-star prospect, and yet I think he is underappreciated outside of the region.
Brandon Huffman – National Recruiting Analyst (West)
Bryan Mone is the No. 1 defensive tackle prospect in the West and a four-star prospect who's one of the elite players in the region. Mone didn't do many of the elite national or regional camps this offseason so he's been a guy we've had to rely solely on film (which has been great). Seeing Mone on the national stage, though, will be a great opportunity for him to cement himself as the West's top defensive tackle.
Jamie Newberg – National Recruiting Analyst (Florida)
Which prospect on the offensive or defensive line from your region are you most looking forward to see throughout the week? I am going with Cameron Robinson (West Monroe, La.) here. I thought he was the best prospect at the Opening. And I would say that he was hands down the top recruit there. I want to see if I will believe the same after the Army week. He certainly has everything you look for in the prototype, franchise left tackle. Robinson is committed to Alabama.
Greg Powers – National Recruiting Analyst (Midlands)
Myles Garrett may be the most physically impressive specimen in the country. He has steadily climbed towards the top of the Midlands rankings as he has made the transition to becoming a complete player as a senior. He earned Scout.com All-Midlands honors after racking up 19.5 sacks in 2013. He uses his superior quicks and rushing ability to fly past slower offensive linemen. He could be in the hunt to be the top player in Texas, where he is currently rated fourth.
Chad Simmons – National Recruiting Analyst (Southeast)
I have seen him many times, but I have to say Cameron Robinson. You just do not see guys like Robinson very often. He looks like a collegiate offensive lineman today and he will be enrolling soon at Alabama, but he still has one high school game left. He plays in a run-oriented offense in high school, so seeing him go against top defensive ends in pass-pro is something I will be watching.
