Seantrel Henderson

SAN ANTONIO — Saturday afternoon in San Antonio, the 2010 U.S. Army All-American Bowl will be played for the tenth time, showcasing some of the top prep football prospects in the nation.

As always at the USAAA Bowl, some of the players will make their collegiate choices known.

Listed below are some players Ohio State fans should keep an eye on ...

SEANTREL HENDERSON - OT (Derham Hall/St. Paul, MN)
Henderson (6-8, 338) is a once-in-a-generation type offensive tackle. He has NFL size and abilities, who walk right into the starting left tackle spot where ever he chooses to play his collegiate football. Henderson is not only the top offensive tackle prospect in the nation, he is the best player in the country — regardless of position. Henderson stated that he will not make a decision on where he will play until signing day. He has the pick of the litter, but his top three schools are Ohio State, Florida and USC.

SHARIFF FLOYD - DT (George Washington/Philadelphia)
The 6-2, 310-pound beast is one of the nation's top defensive line prospects, attacking opposing offenses with his great quickness and strength. Floyd announced that he will commit during Saturday's game and the Buckeyes, Florida, North Carolina and South Carolina are on his short list.

CHRISTIAN BRYANT - CB (Glenville/Cleveland)
Bryant (5-10, 175) is a difference making cornerback, who uses unbelievable athleticism to shut down receivers. He has incredible football smarts, which makes him a nightmare for opposing quarterbacks. He's a typical Glenville athlete. Bryant will not announce during the USAAAB, but his likelihood of becoming a Buckeye — on Jan 26, the day he said he would announce — is nearly a lock.

LATWAN ANDERSON - CB (Glenville/Cleveland)
Anderson (5-10, 185) is an ultra aggressive, hard hitting safety who the Buckeyes would love to land. He has the speed (4.38) to neutralize speedy receivers down field, and the size to come up to line and help in run support. He has hinted that he may announce during Saturday's game. The Buckeyes and West Virginia have the best chances of landing this Glenville star.

MATT JAMES - OT (St. Xavier/Cincinnati)
James (6-7, 280) is a very technically sound offensive tackle, who come in and give whichever college he chooses a game-ready offensive lineman. James will probably not announce Saturday. However, when he does, it will be between Ohio State and Notre Dame.

ANDREW NORWELL - OT (Anderson/Cincinnati)
Norwell (6-6, 260) has already committed to Ohio State. He will not participate in the game due to injury.

The USAAAB will be broadcasted live on Saturday (NBC) at 1 p.m.
