U.S. Army All-America Bowl Diary
The U.S. Army All-American Bowl is a great opportunity for the top players in the nation to gather, and The Rivals100.com Network is proud to give you an inside look at what's going on in San Antonio. Your tour guides are East linemen Heath Benedict and Kwakou Robinson.
Rivals100: Talk about what it's like to be in San Antonio for the All-America Bowl. How have the practices been so far?
Heath (in orange because he's heading to Tennessee): It's been intense. We're not like those West guys that are just hanging out and not practicing hard. We're going full-bore hitting each other.
Kwakou (in blue because he's heading to Virginia): It was getting ugly out there in practice. We're ripping each other's heads off. We're ready for the other guys right now.
Rivals100: Who's been the best looking guys that you've seen in practices? Who passes the eyeball test?
Heath: I mean for the most part everyone here looks like a player. There are a few exceptions, but everybody is big and fast.
Rivals100: Who would be your two guys - one on defense and one on offense - that you would want to be on your team no matter what.
Kwakou: That DE from Massachusetts is a freak. But I'll take (Gerald) Riggs and (Ahmad) Brooks. They're tight.
Heath: Give me Rob Smith and Jim Unis (the freak from Massachusetts). Unis has been tearing it up, and man I can't wait to play with Smith at Tennessee.
Rivals100: Rob's there in the room with you, right, Heath?
Heath: No, he's not. But he's been looking great out there. He's a hard worker.
Rivals100: Who's the team clown?
Kwakou: Buster. He's always clowning.
Heath: Buster Davis no doubt. You should have heard his comedy routine the other night. He was cutting us all up. He is so funny.
Rivals100: Where's Buster going to end up at?
Heath: He told us that he's already committed to Ohio State.
Rivals100: Last year there were a bunch of guys that helped get the other guys to go to LSU with them. Are you all going to recruit for your teams?
Kwakou: We already are. Kai, Brooks and Stovall are going to UVA - oh yeah.
Heath: We're all working on it. Everybody is talking big about their team. It's funny hearing all of the different stories. You'd like some of the stories that we've heard about what goes on at some of the visits, but I don't think you'd like to print that.
Kwakou: Yeah man, there are some good ones going around.
Rivals100: We'll check back with you guys today at the media day, but offer up a prediction for the game on Saturday.
Kwakou: It's war. It's time to represent.
