2023 U.S. Army Bowl Roster

As recently announced on The Wire, as well as our social media accounts, Signing Day Sports will serve as the official national recruiting partner of next week’s U.S. Army Bowl

Signing Day Sports team members will have a booth on-site during bowl week which will be dedicated to teaching today’s brightest young football stars about the Signing Day Sports platform, and how it can benefit them in their recruiting journey. At the booth, athletes will also be able to get their video-verified measurables recorded and uploaded into their player public profiles. 

The U.S. Army Bowl is America’s Biggest Week in Football, where the world’s best athletes come to shine. Hosted in Frisco, Texas, by the Dallas Cowboys, Bowl Week invites the nation’s top athletes and teams to showcase their ability and compete on the nation’s biggest football stage. 

As the official national recruiting partner of The Bowl, Signing Day Sports has played a major role in this selection process by identifying and selecting a number of athletes to participate in the festivities. 

Today, The Wire will highlight a few of the recruits that will be in attendance.

Jamonta Waller – Edge – Picayune Memorial, MS

Jamonta Waller

Jamonta Waller

Waller is a beast in every sense of the word. His dominance on offense and defense is well known in Mississippi high school football circles, and it’s only a matter of time before Auburn gets to see what Waller’s all about as well. Standing at 6’2”, it would be hard not to see him. 

He recorded 56 total tackles, nine sacks, 19 tackles for loss, two forced fumbles and one blocked punt. He finished his junior season with 106 tackles, 24 tackles for loss, 11.5 sacks, one interception, one forced fumble, and two fumble recoveries. Just scary, eye-popping numbers from Florida’s 6A Mr. Football. 

“(He) possesses the ability to contribute immediately on Saturdays,” said Cooper Petagna, national recruiting analyst with 247Sports. “(He) projects to be an all-conference prospect with the potential to develop into a day one NFL draft choice at the next level.”

Pretty strong words for Waller. Fans in Frisco will be getting a preview at what could be an illustrious career.

Devontae Armstrong

Devontae Armstrong

Devontae & Deontae Armstrong – OL – St. Edward, OH

Talk about a package deal. The Armstrong twins, towering at 6’6” and 6’7” respectively, are highly touted offensive line recruits who have capped off a dominant high school football career by tandem committing to none other than Ohio State

Deontae Armstrong

Deontae Armstrong

We’ve listed Jamonta Waller and some other defensive recruits that will be in the U.S. Army Bowl game, but it doesn’t matter who’s there, they are going to have trouble against Deontae and Devontae Armstrong.

The Armstrongs are athletically gifted individuals who both played in other sports, including basketball, until recently when they decided to focus exclusively on football. Whatever they’ve set their minds to, they’ve excelled in. 

“What they’ve done to their bodies since they were freshmen has been incredible,” said St. Edward football coach, Tom Lombardo

Think of it like this: if you could mold the perfect set of athletic, agile, offensive linemen, that have the work ethic and size as well, you would end up pretty close to the Armstrong archetype. 

“I think when you see them, everybody is interested,” Lombardo said. “Then it’s, ‘OK can they play?’ Yes. ‘Are they athletic enough?’ Yes.”

Kahnen Daniels

Kahnen Daniels

Kahnen Daniels – RB – West Point, MS

Daniels’ numbers jump off a page. And we could go on and on discussing why this makes him such an alluring prospect. 427 yards and seven touchdowns is not something every running back can hang their hat on. 

Whoops! Forgot to mention that those statistics came from one game last September. Total statistics site: Kahnen Daniels – West Point Green Wave Football – West Point, MS – scorebooklive.com It’s not hard to see why he won Mr. Football for the 5A division in Florida. 

More than just his statistics, Daniels looks at himself as a leader as well – and he’s willed his team to a 10-3 record – need updating. 

“It’s something I always dreamed of,” said Daniels in regard to his heightened role with his team. “I’ve always looked at myself as a leader. I can say that I’m just grateful for this opportunity and I’m gonna take it and run with it.”

His team in Frisco will be well off if they follow in his footsteps. 

I’Marion Stewart – WR – Kenwood Academy, IL

I'Marion Stewart

I’Marion Stewart

Stewart is the next piece of the puzzle for Michigan’s offense. His production in high school and his proven acumen as a route runner shows his potential as a valuable and dangerous weapon for Jim Harbaugh. And Stewart is as excited as anybody.

“I’ve got a great relationship with Coach Bellamy. He’s been recruiting me ever since they offered me, since my sophomore year. Me and Jim Harbaugh have got a great relationship. I’ll fit in perfectly in their offense,” stated Stewart.

Stewart is at a point now where not only is he fully on board with the Wolverines, but he is recruiting others to follow suit. And that’s what the best of the best do. Stewart has his eye on team success as he moves into his college football career. Nobody can do it by themselves. But if anybody could, it just may be him. 

“As we all know, I’ve been to Michigan a few times… about six-to-eight times,” Stewart said. “The offense they run, they can use me a lot of ways in that offense – the run game, the pass game, kick return, punt return.”
