The Under Armour All-American Game is known for bringing together the top high school and prep football players in the country. It's also a place where many of those top recruits make known their college choices. 

At tonight's 2011 Under Armour All-American Game, there are a handful of top recruits, including a host of ESPNU's Top 150 players expected to announce their commitments.

Here is a breakdown of the players we'll all be keeping an eye on: 


Xzavier Dickson, DE, Griffin, GA 

The 6'4", 242-pound Dickson is the nation's 22nd-ranked player and the No. 5 defensive end. The speedy and sturdy Dickson is a 4-star recruit, according to ESPNU and Scouts Inc. Dickson is just one of many top recruits deciding between Alabama and Georgia. According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Dickson will make his decision with a coin flip. He said that the two schools are so alike in what they can provide for him when thinking about the next level that he's going to flip it five times and the one that comes up the most is the school he'll attend. 


Quan Bray, ATH, LaGrange, GA 

Down to four schools, the athletic Bray will decide at tonight's All-American game. The 5'11", 180-pounder will choose between Alabama, Georgia, Auburn and Florida. Bray is the 23rd-ranked player in ESPNU's top 150 and the No. 2 athlete in the 2011 recruiting class. A high school quarterback, Bray projects as a slot receiver, kick returner or running back in college. 


Devon Blackmon, ATH, Fontana, CA

Blackmon is a 6', 180-pound athlete who could project as a wide receiver depending on where he decides to play. Blackmon is between Oregon, UCLA and USC and is slated to make his decision tonight. Blackmon is the No. 39 player in the nation and the fourth-ranked athlete in the class. With time spent at the quarterback and wide receiver positions in high school, Blackmon will provide plenty of athletic versatility wherever he ends up. 


Doran Grant, CB, Akron, OH 

Grant, the nation's No. 3 cornerback, will reportedly decide between Michigan State and Ohio State at tonight's game. At 5'11", 177 pounds, Grant is No. 66 in ESPNU's Top 150 players. Grant has received 18 offers, and while the Buckeyes seems the logical choice as far as location goes, Grant's grandfather played for the Spartans. 


Marcus Jackson, OL, Vero Beach, FL 

Jackson is the sixth-ranked offensive guard in the nation and sits at No. 87 on ESPNU's Top 150. At 6'2", 295 pounds, Jackson has the size and strength to succeed at the next level and beyond. Jackson is reportedly down to Miami, Michigan State and Tennessee and will make his choice public tonight.


Jabari Gorman, S, Miami, FL 

Gorman is as athletic as they come and will provide versatility in the secondary for whichever team he chooses to play for. The eighth-ranked safety and No. 85 overall player is 6', 180 pounds. He is reported set to decide between Florida and Ohio State. 


Greg Townsend, DE, Beverly Hills, CA 

Townsend has the size and physical attributes that have made college coaches drool throughout the recruiting process. At 6'3", 260 pounds, Townsend provides added length with long arms and a body type that could add even more strength. Townsend is the 11th-ranked defensive end and No. 102 player in the nation. He is reportedly choosing between USC, Washington and TCU.
