UA All-America Game: Top practice performers

BUENA VISTA LAKE, Florida – Four days of preparations have been completed for the Under Armor All-America Game, which begins at 2 p.m. ET on Sunday. The Legends and Icons teams went through installations, run-throughs and one-on-one to prepare for the national television game.

Here is the look at the most impressive players in training.

Walter Nolen

There are very good reasons Nolen is the second player of the 2022 class: he is a dominant talent. Playing against Tennessee competition with Powell High School, Nolen can overwhelm with his size and strength, and that skill continues against offensive linemen just as great if not greatest with the same star rating. Nolen can take over the games and Icon’s attack better represents the number 0 with every snap.

Antonio Williams

Antonio Williams

There is no shortage of arm talent on Clemson’s roster and more receiving talent is on the way to Williams. He impressed with his speed, routes and hands that seemed to get caught in every step he encountered. He is a safe target for Legends quarterbacks.

Will Johnson

Will Johnson

Johnson walked the fields of ESPN Wide World of Sports like he was in midseason form. Johnson was quick, physical and aggressive in covering receivers, taking every rep seriously. His competitive intensity was manifested in each of the four tests.

Aaron Anderson

Aaron Anderson

The energy in training changed as the one-on-one started and players like Anderson pointed out to the spectators. Rep after rep he was consistent in his path, getting the separation from the defensive backs and the opening of windows for the quarterbacks. Another reliable speed burner headed to Tuscaloosa.

Devon Campbell

Devon Campbell

Fans of Oklahoma and Texas will have more interest in the Under Armor All-America Game with Campbell going bad in the trenches. Ranked 16th overall in the Rivals250, Campbell proved his five-star prowess by practically fighting against top defensive linemen. The Bowie High School standout is scheduled for February 3rd.

Jihad Campbell

Jihad Campbell

Linebackers and running backs didn’t get much action during the four days of training, but some of the edge rushers did. The IMG Academy defender played better than indicated and with more power than his long frame suggests, using his speed and technique to overcome tackles in competitive sessions. Fans could hear Campbell’s name calling a lot on Sunday if the Legends quarterbacks were to go back.

Chris Marshall

Chris Marshall

When chains need to be moved, Icons quarterbacks have a big and sure goal in Marshall. He has good speed to match everything else he does well on the pitch as a receiver. The four star looked smooth in training and arrived ready to play.

Silent about his business, Preston was one of the top players during the four-day stretch, regardless of position. It does everything on an elite level and makes everything look easy in the process. When targeted on Sunday, the four-star receiver is set to make some noise.

Robert Spears-Jennings

On the sidelines, Broken Arrow (Okla.) Athlete / defender Spears-Jennings created a buzz. The three-star played above his ranking, showing why he was selected as an All-American. The Sooners have another top player ready to make a name for himself in Norman.

Keithian Alexander

Keithian Alexander

Alexander is not the greatest lineman on the roster, but he is likely to be one of the most feared. His strength, athleticism, and competitive spark are hard to match for offensive linemen, even just one rep at a time. When he turns it on, he is a player that no one can stop.
