2:48 p.m. CT: Attendance of 23,035 announced for the All-American Bowl. – Mike Singer, BlueandGold.com recruiting analyst

2:43 p.m. CT: Nice heads up played by Ole Miss defensive back signee Braxton Meyers, who played multiple positions in the secondary throughout his high school career as well as in San Antonio. Playing special teams here, snatches up the kicker, trying to escape to the edge. Projects to safety in the SEC and showing his awareness an open field tackling there. Sam Spiegelman, On3 National Recruiting Analyst

2:36 p.m. CT: Strong finish to the game for Keon Keeley, who has been stellar this week in 1-on-1 and also pressuring off the edge during the live portion of AAB. Explosive first-step quickness and rigorous in pursuit on that last sack, not to mention elite closing speed. I think the Alabama signee separated himself as the clear number one edge in the class this week. Sam Spiegelman, On3 National Recruiting Analyst

2:35 p.m. CT: Big sack by five-star Alabama signee Keon Keeley who beats Texas A&M OT signee Colton Thomasson and Florida State RB signee Samuel Singleton off the edge to bring down Austin Novosad. Charles Power, On3 Director of Scouting and Rankings

2:32 p.m. CT: Tyler Scott has committed to Auburn. – Jeremy Johnson, On3 National Recruiting Writer

2:30 p.m. CT: Alabama safety signee Caleb Downs takes the direct snap for a two-point conversion. He was a hellacious short yardage back at the high school level with around 20 rushing scores this season. 40 yards out for a leaping TD. Pimpton may have the largest catch radius of any prospect in the cycle. Charles Power, On3 Director of Scouting and Rankings

2:29 p.m. CT: Florida running back signee Treyaun Webb into the end zone to continue East’s dominance today. We have a 49-10 game with 10:35 left in the contest. Caleb Downs ran in the two-point conversion. Mike Singer, BlueandGold.com recruiting analyst

2:28 p.m. CT: Five-star Penn State offensive signee Jven Williams and Georgia tight end signee Pearce Spurlin combine to open a hole for Florida running back signee Treyaun Webb for another TD for the East. We thought there was a big difference in the talent on the rosters at practice and that’s bearing out in this game with the East currently up 47-10. 40 yards out for a leaping TD. Pimpton may have the largest catch radius of any prospect in the cycle. Charles Power, On3 Director of Scouting and Rankings

2:19 p.m. CT: Really nice play by Ohio State QB signee Lincoln Kienholz, showing off his high-end playmaking and athleticism. Had immediate pressure in his face, spun out of the pocket, rolling to his left and hit LSU TE signee Ka’Morruen Pimpton in the end zone from about 40 yards out for a leaping TD. Pimpton may have the largest catch radius of any prospect in the cycle. Charles Power, On3 Director of Scouting and Rankings

2:18 p.m. CT: Ohio State signee Lincoln Kienholz rolls left and tosses up a pass to LSU tight end signee Ka’Morruen Pimpton, who makes an incredible snag for West’s first touchdown on the game. East leads 41-10 with 2:45 left in the 3rd quarter. Mike Singer, BlueandGold.com recruiting analyst

2:13 p.m. CT: Five-star 2024 linebacker TJ Capers has committed to Louisville. Sam Spiegelman, On3 National Recruiting Analyst

2:03 p.m. CT: Justice Haynes puts a cap on that drive, catching a TD from Dante Moore on a quick hitter. Moore recognized the pressure and found Haynes in the flats. Charles Power, On3 Director of Scouting and Rankings

2:02 p.m. CT: Run of the day so far by Alabama RB signee Justice Haynes. Showed his outstanding vision in working through the line of scrimmage and made several defenders miss in space for the long gain. Charles Power, On3 Director of Scouting and Rankings

1:59 p.m. CT: Louisville three-star commit Jamari Johnson re-affirms his commitment to the Cardinals. Sam Spiegelman, On3 National Recruiting Analyst

1:34 p.m. CT: Florida State LB signee Blake Nichelson has flashed some range on multiple occasions. Mike Singer, BlueandGold.com recruiting analyst

1:32 p.m. CT: Notre Dame DL signee Brenan Vernon picks off the screen pass with just one hand. Incredible play to read the screen by Vernon. He also made a similar interception in practice this week. Mike Singer, BlueandGold.com recruiting analyst

1:32 p.m. CT: Austin Novosad making another off schedule play and continuing his strong week in San Antonio. The Oregon QB signee and late flip escapes the pocket and gets the throw off in time and takes a huge hit in the process tipping it off to Quinton Joyner, again who has been a tremendous get back this week. Sam Spiegelman, On3 National Recruiting Analyst

1:29 p.m. CT: 36-yard field goal for David Olano is good. East team leads 34-3 with 2:01 left in the 2nd quarter. Mike Singer, BlueandGold.com recruiting analyst

1:28 p.m. CT: Another strong instance of Tomarrion Parker’s elite first step quickness. The Clemson signee has been explosive off the line all week during practices and one-on-ones. Parker’s quickness is just an element of his game. He’s also big enough to play multiple positions upfront. Sam Spiegelman, On3 National Recruiting Analyst

1:27 p.m. CT: More nice pocket movement and playmaking from Oregon State QB signee Aidan Chiles in the live game setting, steps up, rolls to his right to find Jaedn Skeete for a long catch and run up the sideline.

Chiles is then sacked by Clemson signee Tomarrion Parker who badly beats new Florida signee Caden Jones off the ball and sidesteps the pickup from Mark Fletcher for the big sack. Charles Power, On3 Director of Scouting and Rankings

1:24 p.m. CT: Four-star 2024 safety Peyton Woodyard commits to Georgia. Mike Singer, BlueandGold.com recruiting analyst

1:19 p.m. CT: Tyler Scott, set to commit later today, is down holding his arm. – Jeremy Johnson, On3 National Recruiting Writer

1:16 p.m. CT: Great throw from Dante Moore dropping it in to Carnell Tate down the seam for a touchdown. Very good coverage from Micah Bell on Tate, but the ball was perfectly located. Moore had pressure in his face as well but stood in and took the hit, delivering for the best throw of the game. Charles Power, On3 Director of Scouting and Rankings

1:15 p.m. CT: UCLA signee Dante Moore to Ohio State signee Carnell Tate deep over the middle of the field for a touchdown. Beautifully thrown ball by Moore. East team leads 31-3 with 6:27 left in the first half. Mike Singer, BlueandGold.com recruiting analyst

1:06 p.m. CT: Four-star wide receiver Malik Elzy commits to in-state Illinois. – Jeremy Johnson, On3 National Recruiting Writer

1:05 p.m. CT: 50-yard field goal is good for David Olano. East team leads 24-3 midway through the second quarter. Mike Singer, BlueandGold.com recruiting analyst

1:05 p.m. CT: Good coverage from Washington CB signee Caleb Presley on Carnell Tate to lead to an incompletion. Charles Power, On3 Director of Scouting and Rankings

1:04 p.m. CT: A pic from five star, Alabama safety signee Caleb Downs is a perfect ending to another stellar week for the All-American safety from Georgia. All week Downs has been terrific and coverage covering some of the best All-American wide receivers in San Antonio here he settle he is in position waiting for Pierce Clarkson‘s interception. The 2023 class features so many elite safeties in the conversation, certainly begins with Downs and Oklahoma signee Peyton Bowen. Sam Spiegelman, On3 National Recruiting Analyst

1:03 p.m. CT: Louisville QB signee Pierce Clarkson is flushed to the right and throws it right to Alabama five-star safety signee Caleb Downs. We knew Downs would make an impact in this game and there it is. He may not have an easier interaction in a long time. Charles Power, On3 Director of Scouting and Rankings

12:56 p.m. CT: Really nice play by Oregon State QB signee Aidan Chiles – climbed in the pocket to find a wide open Mark Fletcher, with the Miami RB signee running in for an easy long touchdown. Great feel for the game on display from Chiles. Charles Power, On3 Director of Scouting and Rankings

12:53 p.m. CT: Even though he didn’t come down with the catch, Jamari Johnson was impressive all week in San Antonio and again effort in for the red zone grab. He’s a big framed, pass, catching tight end, but a mismatch with soft hands and very athletic. Basketball background, former quarterback and he creates mismatches in the red zone hill. Choosing from Oregon and Louisville soon, and I like the Cardinals chances of holding on to this high upside pass catcher Sam Spiegelman, On3 National Recruiting Analyst

12:53 p.m. CT: Really nice rep for Utah OT signee Spencer Fano in pass pro on Keon Keeley. Got to his spot and anchored against the 5-star EDGE. Charles Power, On3 Director of Scouting and Rankings

12:51 p.m. CT: Ohio State signee Lincoln Kienholz faces pressure, tosses a dangerous pass that was hauled in by Jamari Johnson, but his foot clearly out of bounds. One heck of an effort by Johnson, though. Mike Singer, BlueandGold.com recruiting analyst

12:49 p.m. CT: Impressive tackle in space by Ohio State safety signee Malik Hartford.

Alabama signee Keon Keeley was in the backfield with regularity on this drive – got called for a roughing the passer on Lincoln Kienholz. Disruptive and knifing through the line.

The same can be said for Georgia DL signee Jordan Hall who was behind the line on several plays. Charles Power, On3 Director of Scouting and Rankings

12:47 p.m. CT: Malik Hartford reads and reacts to the West’s screen pass and makes an impressive tackle. A roughing the passer is called after the play on Alabama signee Keon Keeley, though. West team is at the 10-yard line.  Mike Singer, BlueandGold.com recruiting analyst

12:46 p.m. CT: How about that run from Quinton Joyner, the USC signee who has been a slippery, but also powerful back in San Antonio all week. Out of Manor, Texas, Joyner has straight line speed, and a great equilibrium to stay on his feet and extend plays after the catch. Sam Spiegelman, On3 National Recruiting Analyst

12:45 p.m. CT: Georgia DL signee Jordan Hall makes a tackle for loss and pulls some dollar bills out of his pants and makes it rain on the field, literally. Charles Power, On3 Director of Scouting and Rankings

12:40 p.m. CT: Justice Haynes fumbles and the West team takes over. Clemson signee Tomarrion Parker forced the fumble. East leads 14-0 with 2:26 left in the first quarter. Mike Singer, BlueandGold.com recruiting analyst

12:38 p.m. CT: Pearce Spurlin makes a nice catch on third down to extend the drive for the East team. He’s been one of the more impressive overall pass catchers this week. Mike Singer, BlueandGold.com recruiting analyst

12:37 p.m. CT: Great cut by Miami RB signee Mark Fletcher, showing some nice feet in the hole, especially for a big back. Charles Power, On3 Director of Scouting and Rankings

12:35 p.m. CT: Caden Jones has committed to Florida. – Jeremy Johnson, On3 National Recruiting Writer

12:27 p.m. CT: Since a slow start Day 1, Ohio State signee Brandon Inniss has been brilliant working out of the slot and in the goal line situations as we saw there. Moore dropped it in his chest and Inniss beat ND signee Micah Bell right out of his break. Inniss has been doing this for years. Sam Spiegelman, On3 National Recruiting Analyst

12:26 p.m. CT: Ohio State WR signee Brandon Inniss beats Notre Dame CB signee Micah Bell off the line and Dante Moore throws a great ball to Inniss in the corner of the end zone for the second East TD. Charles Power, On3 Director of Scouting and Rankings

12:25 p.m. CT: On the first play of the West team’s possession, they go for a trick play, which is fumbled and results in a turnover. The East team is set up in the red zone, and Dante Moore finds Brandon Inniss for a touchdown on the ensuing play. 14-0 East. Mike Singer, BlueandGold.com recruiting analyst

12:22 p.m. CT: Saw a lot of more from Justice Hayne, from what we saw throughout the week in San Antonio, — unning hard, explosive movements in and out of brakes and even in a compact frame, his consistently pushes the pile forward.

Texas commit Anthony Hill was strong at the back end of the drive, especially used to get after the quarterback as we saw with a tip pass, and then a big hit on Dante Moore on the touchdown. Hill is that his best coming downhill, that includes against the run ends pursuing the quarterback.

Props to more the UCLA commit, for completing that pass to Jalen Brown while still taking that massive pop from hell. Brown, the LSU commit, is very smooth, working underneath, and was very shorthanded throughout the week in San Antonio. Sam Spiegelman, On3 National Recruiting Analyst

12:20 p.m. CT: Very nice first drive from UCLA signee Dante Moore — showed some nice zip on an in-breaking route to Ohio State signee Brandon Inniss and threw a strike to LSU signee Jalen Brown for a TD on a slant.

We also got to see the high-end contact balance from Alabama RB signee Justice Haynes in running through arm tackles and pushing the pile to pickup extra yards.

Nice coverage instincts by Texas linebacker signee Anthony Hill. Alabama EDGE signee Yhonzae Pierre with constant pressure on the first drive as well. Charles Power, On3 Director of Scouting and Rankings

12:19 p.m. CT: Dante Moore to Jalen Brown for an East team touchdown. A surgical drive by the UCLA signee at quarterback. That was too easy. Mike Singer, BlueandGold.com recruiting analyst

12:16 p.m. CT: Alabama signee Yhonzae Pierre with a personal foul, roughing the passer on Dante Moore. That moves the West team inside the red zone. Mike Singer, BlueandGold.com recruiting analyst

12:15 p.m. CT: Nice pass from Dante Moore to Brandon Inniss on a deep slant route for big gain. Braxton Myers makes the stop. Nice snag by Inniss. Mike Singer, BlueandGold.com recruiting analyst

12:12 p.m. CT: Mikal Harrison-Pilot just committed to Houston. Houston now ranks 48th in the 2023 On3 Consensus Team Recruiting Rankings. – Jeremy Johnson, On3 National Recruiting Writer

12:08 p.m. CT: Players at midfield to show their support to Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin, who suffered a serious injury earlier this week. Mike Singer, BlueandGold.com recruiting analyst

11:54 a.m. CT: East is wearing dark gray and the West is wearing light gray. Mike Singer, BlueandGold.com recruiting analyst

11:49 a.m. CT: Shamurad Umarov is in uniform today. He wasn’t dressed in pads on Wednesday. – Jeremy Johnson, On3 National Recruiting Writer
