Stanford football recruits in today's Army All-American Game on NBC

#CardClass16 takes on the Army All-American Game

Erich Schlegel-USA TODAY Sports

This Saturday is arguably the most important All-American Game in the nation. The Army All-American Game is the last one to be played, but it is the most important one for Stanford fans. During this game fans will get to see commits such as: QB K.J. Costello and WR Simi Fehoko. But  these aren't the only recruits in the game, Stanford has two other commits in this game and two targets as well. Tune into the game to see some of Stanford's future stars on Saturday 9th at 1:00 pm EST 10:am PST on NBC.

Who to Watch: Stanford Commits

K.J. Costello: Costello is the 5th ranked pocket passer according to 247sports and the #2 recruit in Stanford's recruiting class. Costello won't be starting in this game because there are some higher ranked quarterbacks, Shea Patterson (Ole Miss) and Brandon Peters (Michigan), but he will see some playing time. Look for him to hook up with Simi Fehoko and for them to start some chemistry.

Simi Fehoko: As I mentioned above, Fehoko, is a WR and is the #1 recruit from the state of Utah. The Army Player of the Year finalists has incredible ball skills and a natural route running ability. The competition at this game will be leagues above what he is use to in Utah, so it will be interesting to see if he can create some separation between the top DBs in the country.

Curtis Robinson: Robinson is the best 5-star linebacker recruit in Stanford's history. That is a big statement because of Stanford's history will great linebackers. The biggest strength of Robinson's is his ability to cover ground. He has tremendous speed which helps his coverage skills and he has the strength to pop someone.

Clark Yarbrough: Yarbrough is an offensive tackle and is the only commit to be playing for the East team. After reports of a bad first day of practice, Yarbrough came back for the second day and "really adjusted to the speed of the defensive linemen...". Also in between plays he was asking questions trying to get an advantage for the next drill. Seeing kids try and learn from their mistakes and improve is a testament to their heart; it is great to see Yarbrough have better second day of practice.

Who to Watch: Stanford Targets

Dylan Crawford: Crawford is an elusive, big framed WR from California. His biggest strengths as a wide receiver is his ability to separate from a defensive back either through precise route running, top notch acceleration, and his straight athletic ability. The colleges Crawford has said that are in the running for his pledge are: UGA, UCLA, Washington, Michigan, Stanford, Oregon, and The U. Crawford will be making his decision during the game, so stay tuned to see if he will be the newest Cardinal commit.

Demetris Robertson: Robertson is listed as an ATH, so he could play slot receiver or defensive back for Stanford. As of right now, every report that I have seen has said he has been the most impressive player at the practices. This is good news especially if Robertson commits to Stanford. But here comes the bad news. In an interview Robertson stated he needed to bring his SAT scores up 100 points to take his official visit to Stanford. It seems like if he does bring up his SAT he's a lock on Stanford. Robertson will be making his decision on National Signing Day.
