Best Guess: USAAB East Starting Lineup

It is that time of year again as some of the nation's premiere high school football players converge on San Antonio, Texas and another U.S. Army All-American Bowl. Scout.com tries to pick who we think may end up starting for the East team.

Maryville (Tenn.) head coach George Quarles has the unenviable and monumental task of trying to select a starting lineup out of a roster comprised of star players. Every coach in each of the games that we have covered use different philosophies as to why they chose the players they do to start the game.

Scout.com is just trying to make an educated guess as to whom we think may end up in the starting lineup come Saturday. As we watch practice all week the cream will rise to the top and we should have a good idea as to whether or not our predictions may come to fruition or not.

OFFENSE

Quarterback: Joe Boisture

ANALYSIS:Paul Jones may have the most upside and Barry Brunetti may be the dual-threat guy, but Boisture seems to be the most polished.

Running Back:Silas Redd

ANALYSIS: Of course the obvious choice here would be to pick the No. 1 rated running back Marcus Lattimore and he very well could start, but I think Redd just fits in this type of game.

Wide Receiver: Kyle Prater

ANALYSIS: Not much needs to be said when you're talking about Kyle Prater.

Wide Receiver:Christian Green

ANALYSIS: Green may be one of the most exciting athletes on the field, so the East needs to get the ball in his hands.

Martavis Bryant: The second of the twin towers with Prater, these two should be fun to watch.

Tight End: C.J. Fiedorwicz ANALYSIS: Seriously, would it be a true East team without a tight end in the line-up?


Offensive Tackle: Robert Crisp

ANALYSIS: Returns to where he first got his name on the national radar at the All-American Junior Combine one year ago

Offensive Guard: Brandon Linder

ANALYSIS: Play for one of the most powerful programs in the U.S. Will that translate to a strong performance?

Center: Christian Lombard

ANALYSIS: One of the very first selection for the U.S. Army Bowl, a very cerebral player…

Offensive Guard: Arie Kouandjio
ANALYSIS: Came in to his own with a strong senior season…

ANALYSIS: Best defensive line prospect from Pennsylvania since Callahan Bright….

Defensive Tackle: Garrison Smith
ANALYSIS: Racked up offers from all of the heavy hitters before selecting Georgia.

Defensive End: Gabe King
ANALYSIS: Should come to the game with a chip on his shoulder and lots to prove.

Linebacker: Khairi Fortt

Safety: Latwan Anderson
