Bay Area NFTC Notebook was in Northern California for the San Francisco Elite 11 and Oakland NFTC. Read on for a notebook from an Arizona perspective, including evaluations and recruiting notes. spent the weekend in San Francisco and while Greg Biggins, Brandon Huffman, and Scott Kennedy watched numerous prospects, we have decided to break it down and put an Arizona perspective on it.

Player Evaluations:

Kwesi Mashack: Mashack was recently offered by Arizona and had an impressive weekend.

"Mashack has a good frame and is built like a tank," Biggins writes. "He's very physical and strong, especially in his upper body and is gifted athletically as well. He can run and jump and plays with good technique as well. Mashack is very competitive as well and will battle you all game."

Sharif Williams: "Williams has the body that college coaches covet as a defensive linema, but needs to just continue to get better with his technique, especially given his background as an offensive lineman," the recruiting team writes.

Manny Wilkins: Wilkins is easily one of Arizona's top recruiting priorities and he recently showed why.

"They key with Wilkins is always consistency," Biggins writes. "When he's on, he's as good as anyone. He's a big, strong kid with a live and a quick release. When he's off and starts to press, he can really struggle. He was on both days this past weekend and is another player we think has a great shot to make the Elite 11 finals."

Cade Apsay: Apsay recently visited Arizona and is another player that the Wildcats have offered at quarterback.

"Apsay threw Friday at the Elite 11, went home Saturday for a 7 on 7 competition and was back in action Sunday," Biggins says. "Not surprisingly, his arm looked a little tired as a few of his deep balls floated on him. Apsay looked good in every other aspect of the camp and we've seen him enough in the past to know arm strength is not an issue for him and feel he's a terrific prospect."

Kammy Delp: Delp was one of the best players at the camp and will likely see his recruitment take off because of it.

"Delp was a rock at offensive guard," says. "He was absolutely immobile once he locked on to a defender and sunk his hips. His combination of strength, mobility and leverage made him a wall for the interior linemen to try futilely to get past. Delp has offers on both sides of the ball, but we think he's a lock to be an offensive guard at the next level."

Andrew Mike: The local offensive lineman got to compete against top competition and impressed.

"He lined up at right tackle and had a long reach with his big frame," the recruiting team writes. "He covered a lot of ground taking on speed rushers and was strong enough to keep them outside away from the quarterback target."

Joey Alfieri: The ‘backer coaches couldn't stop gushing about Alfieri, who put on a clinic," Biggins writes. "He has a great frame, moves very well and made a ton of plays. He competes very hard, understands how to finish off a play and is a natural leader."

John Plattenburg: "The DB position was easily the most loaded in the camp, but there was no doubt who the top corner was," Biggins says. "Plattenburg put on a show and has every tool you're looking for in a college corner. He has a solid frame, long arms and very quick feet. He showed great quickness breaking on the ball, is a tough, physical player and has excellent ball skills as well. He didn't get the invite for The Opening yet but don't be surprised if it happens soon."


Manny Wilkins: "Wilkins has offers from Arizona, Colorado State, Utah State and Wyoming, but a number of schools are watching him while waiting for Kyle Allen to make his decision," Huffman writes.

"Arizona State, UCLA and Texas A&M have all watched Wilkins throw this spring and plan to again, but all have offered Allen, so Wilkins said he's fine waiting to see how the dominoes fall. The four-star will be visiting Arizona and Arizona State over Memorial Day weekend."

Cade Apsay: "Arizona was a great visit and coach Rod (Rich Rodriguez) is probably one of the more chill guys I've ever met," Apsay tells "I really liked the campus and the rest of the staff, Coach Dews and Coach Smith. Arizona has offered me, but they didn't pressure me to commit or anything, they know I want to go through the process.

"Colorado was great too, a lot different than Arizona in terms of the campus and overall atmosphere. The coaches want to visit me and watch me throw before they offer."

Apsay will camp with UCLA and said he would also like to camp with Oregon State and Washington over the summer as well, but it's not set in stone yet.

Kyahva Tezino: "Last Friday, I got an offer from Cal and UCLA came earlier in the week," Tezino tells "I also have Houston, Miami, Arizona and a few more, but I can't remember them all. I'm blessed for sure being just a sophomore and having all this early attention.

"I would like to narrow things down after my junior year, I have a lot of time. My dream is to get to the NFL so I want to find a school that can help get me there. I'm going to camp with USC, UCLA and Washington this summer and I'm looking forward to all of those."
