Football recruiting update

This past weekend both UCLA and ASU held one-day team camps. Both camps featured a number of players that are listing the Wildcats. Here is an update on some of these players.

ASU camp

Moon Valley's Chris McGaha was the best wide out at the camp. Interestingly enough, when he shifted over to cornerback he really struggled. That is unusual, most players are good at both, but he had some troubles back peddling.

Moon Valley had another impressive player. OL/DL Jeff Jones is a guy teams will really take a look at.

The best quarterback at the camp was William Tuitama. The Cats should be in good with the passer. Wildcat assistant Mike Tuiasasopo used to coach St. Mary's High School in Stockton, CA, the same school that Tuitama attends.

Tuitama was in Tucson on an unofficial visit prior to the ASU camp and we heard that it went very well. He is one of the top passers on the Wildcats' wish list.

The QB crop at ASU was not great. Tuitama out performed De La Salle's Kevin Lopina. Speaking of unofficial visits, I spoke with Kyle Brown and his visit went very well. Brown, a Mater Dei product as well as Miles Simon's cousin, will return for the June 19th one-day camp. He looked good at the UCLA camp.

Two guys who have not gotten a lot of attention are James Sutton and Kaybrin Stevenson. The WR/CB's looked very good at the ASU camp and could appear on some recruiting radar screens.

Central's Chris Rodgers is another interesting lineman.

UCLA camp

Get ready to hear more about DT Fevaea'i Ahmu. He was the best DT at the camp and is already boasting an offer from Arizona and San Diego State among others. He currently has the Wildcats in his top-three.

Eben Britton is also liking Arizona. The Burbank OL is listing Arizona in his top five. He is a guy with a lot of upside. He didn't have the best mechanics at the camp, but he has a ton of upside and is a guy a coach can really mold.

One of my favorite players of the weekend was Vic So'oto of Carlsbad, CA. The TE/LB is just plain good. He had five offers, but I expect many more to come. The Cats are not in his top-five but he told me that he likes them a lot. He's an LDS and neither he nor his father was sure about a mission. Right now his top schools are SDSU, Utah, UTEP and BYU.

Jason Forcier will camp with Arizona. He is from the same high school as current Wildcat Richard Kovalcheck and says his friend has nothing but great things to say about Arizona, both the football program and the school itself.

QB Josh Portis was impressive. Expect to hear more about him in the future.
