Given the fact we’ve traveled all over the country this year to scout prospects in the Class of 2016 with our NFL veteran coaching staff, at NFL facilities from coast to coast mind you, we figured it was time to unveil the Blue-Grey All-American Bowl Watch List.
Most of the names you’ll find either attended the brand’s Regional Combine or Super Combine. Other individuals received an invite to one of the workouts, but unfortunately for whatever the reason, we’re unable to attend due to an injury or another prior commitment.
As most know, there are a three Blue-Grey All-American Bowls: East vs. West on Dec. 20 at Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium, North vs. South on Jan. 9 at Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Raymond James Stadium and Jan. 16 at Jacksonville Jaguars’ EverBank Field. Each big game will be broadcast on Fox Sports and the Impact Football Network.
In the meantime, prospects will soon be added to the Blue-Grey All-American Bowl Watch List and those individuals are among the nation’s many recruits being considered for a possible invite. Official announcements on some, but not all, of the participants will be made over the next couple of months. Stay tuned for details.
Editor’s note: Considering our scouting team has done so much nationwide research, and the list of talented upperclassmen recruits from coast to coast continues to grow and grow, moving forward we’ll feature a pair of stories focusing on the many athletes who recently made the Blue-Grey All-American Bowl Watch List.
