Tuesday was the second day of practices at the UnderArmour All-American game at Disney's Wide World of Sports complex just outside of Orlando. Scout.com breaks down the top five performers on each side of the football.

Elite 11

1. O.J. Howard, TE, Autauga Academy (AL), committed to Alabama

Howard has prototype size and athleticism and is clearly the top TE in attendance. This the second day in a row where he has made the top five and we all expect big things down the road. There is a saying that the rich get richer and that is very true right now in this case as he will give Alabama a different dimension to their passing game.

2. Alvin Kamara, RB, Norcross (GA)

Kamara stood out on special teams (returner) and as a running back because of his explosiveness,top end speed, hands, and ability to make plays. As a group we are impressed with the size he has added to his frame and he should be a big play waiting to happen.


Foster has been a consistent deep threat

3. Kelvin Taylor, RB, Glades Day (FL), committed to Florida

Taylor has been one of the most productive running backs in the history of Florida due to his tough running style, vision, and toughness. All three attributes were on full display as scored TDs in a goal line drill. Taylor is a complete back that can play on all three downs and is a more than willing blocker. We expect him to have a big game Friday.

4. Robert Foster, WR, Central Valley (PA), committed to Alabama

The most consistent wide receiver on the Black team has been Foster who reminds us of Amari Cooper from a year ago. Alabama can hope that he will have a similar impact as he has the speed to get behind DBs and is exceptional getting in and out of his cuts. Foster is a big, smooth athlete that has a high ceiling.

5. Grant Hill, OL, Huntsville (AL), committed to Alabama

Hill was the top offensive linemen on the Black team as he is exceptionally tough, agile, and technically sound. He has worked at OT and OG this week and really could play either after dropping 40 pounds over the past year. He is a powerful blocker straight ahead and will drive defenders off the ball.

Brandon Huffman, Chad Simmons, Jason Higdon, John Garcia Jr., and Amy Campbell contributed to this report.
