National recruiting analysts and talent evaluators from ESPN Scouts, Inc., will select players for both team rosters. Eight of the top 10 ranked players in the ESPN 150 competed in the 2009 game. Because there are a number of All-America games concurrently, they are in competition for players. A total of 80 players are invited, with all them having the opportunity to also participate in a televised skills competition and other ancillary events held at Disney's Wide World of Sports Complex in the days prior to the game. In addition, ESPNU televises the team practices.
