Visits Galore, Again
With just two weekends left for official visits before National Signing Day, most of the Pac-12 schools are hosting big weekends, save California, which is somewhat reeling from the coaching departures of Tosh Lupoi and Eric Kiesau to Washington and it's Bay Area neighbor Stanford.
The rest of the conference, though, has a plethora of visitors in.
The Desert Schools
Todd Graham has double-digit visitors, including four from Long Beach Poly, who've all committed, but gone soft on the verbals- Randall Goforth, Richard Smith, Matthew Rowe and Salamo Fiso. The headliner is, though, Darreus Rogers, the four-star receiver committed to USC.
Big Weekend in the Southland
USC has some talent in the trenches this weekend, with five-star tackle Kyle Murphy, four-star center Hiva Lutui and four-star tackle Zach Banner as well as defensive lineman Leonard Williams from Florida and Aziz Shittu from Atwater Buhach Colony in Los Angeles.
UCLA has another double-digit weekend with five-star Bryce Treggs, a Cal commit, joined by another five-star new UCLA verbal Ellis McCarthy, as well as U.S. Army Bowl MVP Ishmael Adams, four-star linebacker Aaron Porter and Oregon commit Jeremy Castro in Westwood. They're joined by two-star cornerback Justin Combs, and his famous father, Sean, "P-Diddy" Combs.
Lot Of Talent in Salt Lake City and Boulder
Utah has a number of in-state visitors this weekend, led by Brandon Fanaika, a Stanford commit, Chase Hansen, Austin Lee and Moana Ofahengaue. They also have new JC commit Junior Salt in, after he decommitted from Florida.
Colorado will host four-star outside linebacker Seth Jacobs from Arroyo Grande (Calif.) as well as three-star defensive end Ewing Simmons as well as a familiar name in Derek McCartney, the grandson of legendary Colorado coach Bill McCartney.
Ducks, Beavers Hosting Prospects
Oregon State has the nation's premier offensive guard, five-star Isaac Seumalo, on campus. Seumalo, a Corvallis native, and the son of Beavers defensive line coach Joe Seumalo visited USC last weekend, but the Beavers are trying to secure his verbal this week. Joining him are commits like Dustin Stanton, Joel Skotte, Caleb Saulo and Chase Eldredge.
Oregon's has just a handful of visitors, but the main one is Jeremiah Poutasi, a four-star committed to Utah, who's always maintained Oregon as his dream school, as well as Bryan Harper, a two-way threat from Ontario (Calif.) Colony.
Evergreen State Schools Hosting Several
Washington made the biggest news this weekend with the hiring of Lupoi and Kiesau and they'll host five visitors this week, including Cal commit Jordan Payton, who's tripping to Washington thanks to the hiring of Kiesau. The Huskies are also hosting a pair of Hawaii prospects in Luke Kaumatule, a Stanford verbal and Psalm Wooching.
Washington State is also capitalizing on Kiesau's departure from Berkeley, with four-star athlete Cedric Dozier, who'd been committed to the Bears, now visiting Pullman. Another four-star receiver, Kenny Lawler ius at Washington State. The Cougars are also hosting JC lineman Carlos Lozano as well as Compton (Calif.) Dominguez cornerback Alphonso Marsh.
West Visitors Nationwide
Sua Cravens- OLB/DB - Murrieta (Calif.) Vista Murrieta & Michael Hutchings - OLB- Concord (Calif.) De La Salle
Cravens already one of the elite prospects nationally in the 2013 class, but Cravens, a Scout 100 member, landed three national offers this week, from Florida, Michigan and Nebraska. Hutchings is a five-star in the 2013 class and he picked up a new offer from Oregon.
