    SAN ANTONIO — The 20th All-American Bowl concluded with the West topping the East, 33-20.

    Here are the top performers from the game, with an Alpha Dog and the next 10 best, five from the West and five from the East and this list includes quarterbacks.

    Alpha Dog: Noah Sewell (23) - It has been a great week for the five-star linebacker and he put his stamp on the All-American Bowl by showing just how athletic and versatile he is at 270+. Sewell lined up in the backfield on offense and had a key block that sprung a run for the West, had an athletic interception that he jumped to get and then returned for 15 yards and also showed his speed and vision running the ball when he took a fake punt and ripped off a 30-yard gain on the offensive series after his interception.

    EAST SQUAD
    Top Performers

    1. Will Anderson (78)- Anderson continued his stellar week with a big performance in the All-American Bowl, with three tackles, two tackles for loss and a sack while also forcing a fumble during the game. Few players upped their stock this week like the Alabama signee.

    2. Bryan Bresee (1) - The nation's No. 1 prospect did a little bit of everything, lining up in the offensive backfield for a couple of carries while also recording a tackle for loss and a sack in the contest and was consistently forcing the West quarterbacks from the pocket. The next stop for Bresee is Clemson.

    3. Josh Downs (210) - It didn't matter who the East quarterback was, they were constantly looking for the North Carolina signee. He had a game high nine receptions for a game high 120 yards, with a long of 42 yards and while he was kept out of the end zone, he was the go-to receiver for the East.

    4. DJ Uiagalelei (13) - Uiagalelei finished the game with more completions and attempts then the West quarterbacks combined had. He finished 16-for-25 for 252 yards and a pair of touchdowns. While he did throw an interception, his two touchdown passes were things of beauty and the Clemson signee left his mark on the game.

    5. Keyshawn Greene (154) - Greene led the East defense in tackles (4.5), tackles for loss (2.5) and in sacks (1) and was all over the place for their defense. Nebraska is his next stop.

    WEST SQUAD
    Top Performers

    1. Bryce Young (6) - The nation's No. 1 dual-threat quarterback was named the All-American Bowl MVP after a typically efficient game from Young. The Alabama-bound five-star was 6-for-9 for 164 yards with a pair of touchdowns, including a 75-yard touchdown pass to Jalen McMillanon the first play from scrimmage.

    2. Dwight McGlothern (25) - After announcing for LSU in the first quarter, the first declaration during the game, McGlothern then went out and showed why LSU made a late run for him, with two interceptions including a 38-yard pick-six of Evan Prater to put the game out of reach for the West. McGlothern also added a pass breakup and two tackles.

    3. Antonio Doyle (8) - In his first game in the Lone Star State before he plays at Texas A&M, the future Aggie had a game high 11 tackles, five more than the next closest tackler and had a tackle for loss. Doyle had seven of his 11 tackles recorded as solos.

    4. Gary Bryant Jr. (57) -Bryant announced for USC in the second half of the game but before that, he filled up the stat sheet with three receptions for 77 yards including a 43-yard touchdown grab from Young and he also ran for 11-yards on an end around and added a punt return for good measure.

    5. Jacobian Guillory (147) - While Guillory won't show up in the box score, he showed up in the East offensive backfield a ton, causing problems for their inside running game and getting in the face of the East quarterbacks and he helped lead a defensive charge that allowed just 45 rushing yards on 21 carries. Guillory is headed to LSU.

    It sure seems like Greene may end up being a difference maker for NU.

    We definitely could use one on defense.

    Dudes as fast as a DB. He definitely has that L David feel to him with his defensive instincts. Dudes not going to set long...he will be playing early and often. With any luck, him and Nick Henrichs will become beasts at ILB for years to come. Then you add on G Nelson and Jackson Hannah (the 4 star LB from Tennessee). We definitely appear to have our LBs for the future. Then you add in another Top 100 LB talent in Randolph Kpai, J Butler and B Gunnerson and LBs are good to go.

    ILB are really adding depth (don’t forget Mauga). OLB, I am much more skeptical about. Maybe a new OLB coach can work come manic there.

    I think Mauga will help a bunch. I was only
    talking future LBs. Mauga should help right away and make an instant impact...or should anyways.

    Don’t we want specifically our outside LB’s to be fast? Obviously it would be nice to get all our LB’s to have speed but our blitzing lbs to be OLB and faster than our ILB’s? And if green is fast and lanky don’t we want to add some weight, keeping his speed and make him an OLB? Just a thought.

    sounds like they want him for ILB. Or that’s what he says they recruited him for anyways. We have to remember Lavonte David did just fine playing at 210-220 range as a college LB. you don’t have to be 240 plus. I do agree he will definitely add some weight, that’s no doubt at all.

    Yes for the field side OLB that's true. On the other side, in Chinander's defense that OLB plays on the line a lot and is almost like a DE so you want a bigger player there.

    yep and that’s why we got guys like G Nelson and Blaise Gunnerson. The 240-265 pound OLBs.
