The Opening Los Angeles Regional Recruiting Notebook

Here's the latest recruiting news and notes on some of the top players we saw at the Opening Regional Camp in Los Angeles last weekend...

West Hills (Calif.) Chaminade running back Andrew Van Buren has six offers, from Boise State, Colorado, Colorado State, Hawaii, Nevada and UCLA. Van Buren grew up a USC fan and said that he's heard from the Trojans and has visited unofficially.  Van Buren said that Washington and Arizona State as well as Colorado could get visits this spring. - Brandon Huffman

San Bernardino (Calif.) Cajon defensive end Jeremiah Martin is still nursing a foot fracture, so he didn't work out but watched teammates perform.  The four-star has nine offers and said that an offer from UCLA, which got a commitment from his teammate Jhevon Hill last week, is standing out.  He'll visit Alabama this month and thinks the Tide could offer him.  Martin said that he's also high on Boise StateArizona, San Diego State and Colorado and still hears from Michigan on occasion. - Brandon Huffman

Jalen Nailor recently visited Arizona and said he has the Wildcats at No. 1 after landing that scholarship offer. The three-star wide receiver from Bishop Gorman noticed the Las Vegas pipeline the coaching staff has focused on in the last few cycles, and he's had conversations with former teammate Malik Hausman about joining him in Tucson. Nailor is eyeing visits to Colorado and Washington before he makes a decision late in the summer. - Blair Angulo

Temecula (Calif.) Chaparral offensive lineman Justin Dedich is up to 19 total scholarship offers and said Colorado, UCLA and Washington are the schools he’s talking with the most. He visited the Bruins on Sunday following The Opening Regional and is hoping to get back out to Boulder and UW later this spring/summer. Stanford is involved and Dedich could camp with the Cardinal as well. - Greg Biggins

Temecula (Calif.) Chaparral offensive lineman Steven Jones visited UCLA on Sunday following the Opening Regional Camp in L.A and picked up an offer from the Bruins. Jones is up to 13 scholarship offers and said the schools he’s talking with the most are Arizona State, Colorado, Oregon, TCU and Washington. He has already visited the Huskies twice and will check out Oregon later this Spring. ASU could get a visit later this Spring and Oregon State is a possibility as well. - Greg Biggins

Oregon State also offered last week and Colorado and Fresno State were the first two to jump on board. Rae said he plans to camp with USC over the summer and is hoping to visit Washington as well. Cal and Utah are also involved and the Bruins could be the team to beat early on as his father James played football in the late 80s for UCLA.  - Greg Biggins
