The Under Armour All-America Game is a chance for a number of the nation's top prospects to enjoy one last time as high school stars before heading off to the challenge of college football.

The week leading up to the game is filled with intrigue, from the one-on-one matchups in practice to all of the recruiting rumors with national signing day just around the corner.

With several ESPN 150 prospects in attendance, our recruiting writers give their top storylines heading into the week.

Gunning for No. 1

Since the initial ESPN 150 came out last spring, Loganville (Ga.) Grayson defensive end Robert Nkemdiche has been ranked as the No. 1 prospect in the country. Will the defensive end be able to hold on to the top spot?

Several players will look to challenge Nkemdiche during the week of practice for the Under Armour All-America Game, among them these top-10 prospects: fellow Peach State defensive end Carl Lawson (Milton, Ga./Milton), cornerback Vernon Hargreaves III (Tampa, Fla./Wharton), defensive tackle Montravius Adams (Vienna, Ga./Dooly County) and linebacker Matthew Thomas (Miami/Booker T. Washington).
