U.S. Army All-American Bowl Final Hot 11
1. Marcus Forston, DT, Miami (Fla.) Northwestern

No one player was more consistent throughout practice all week and still had a big impact on the game. Forston made several big plays, either stuffing the run or sending it into the arms of teammates and he was a monster all week.
2. Mike Adams, OT, Dublin (Ohio) Coffman

Adams is a franchise left tackle and showed it all week. He had a solid game and his aggressive nature and ability to block in space are all we needed to see to watch him rise in the next rankings.
3. Terrelle Pryor, QB, Jeannette, Pa.

It was hard to see what Pryor could do in practice because of the offense the East was running, but it was clear what he can do in the game. He's the best player in the country and a rare athlete that only comes along every so often.
4. Michael Floyd, WR, St. Paul (Minn.) Cretin-Derham Hall

Floyd was arguably the best wide receiver in practice all week for the West and he was certainly impressive in the game itself with his two touchdowns. Notre Dame has a downfield threat coming to South Bend.
5. Jonathan Baldwin, WR, Aliquippa, Pa.

Baldwin was right with DeVier Posey all week when it came to being the best receiver on the East and his touchdown in the game was a thing of beauty. He's too big to handle for cornerbacks.
6. D.J. Monroe, CB, Angleton, Texas

The knock on Monroe is his size but he simply makes plays. How many times was his name called in the game? He's all over the field, anticipates well and has blazing speed, running down Lamaar Thomas from behind on one play. He was also solid all week in practice.
7. Arthur Brown, LB, Wichita (Kan.) Wichita East

Brown isn't huge, but he sure is active. During the week he was flashing his speed but being too aggressive and thinking too much. In the game he let his instincts take over and he was the most dominant defender on either side.
8. Ryan Williams, RB, Manassas (Va.) Stonewall Jackson

Williams emerged as the best running back for the East throughout the week of practice and flashed his ability to make plays out of the backfield in the game. He is a complete back and will be a star for the Hokies.
9. Darrell Scott, RB, Ventura (Calif.) St. Bonaventure

How Scott got so few touches in the game itself is a mystery to us, but it doesn't make us forget how good he was all week in practice and how much talent he has. He has size, he can run between the tackles, is elusive and has a great burst to the outside.
10. Rahim Moore, S, Los Angeles (Calif.) Dorsey

Moore got better as the week wore on and had a very good game. He's a physical player with good instincts and seems to have a knack for knowing where the ball is going. And he's a sure tackler. /font>
11. Lamaar Thomas, RB, Fort Washington (Md.) Friendly

The last one was a tough call with many candidates but Thomas had a very good game and showed his explosive speed. He has the best vision of any running back on either squad and proved he could do some damage up the middle. He won't be a running back at Ohio State unless they drastically change their offense, but he'll be effective.
