IMG 7on7: West Recruiting Notebook

Recruiting news and notes from some of the West's top prospects playing at this weekend's IMG/Madden 7on7 West Regional Tournament in Redondo Beach, California...

This weekend's IMG Madden 7on7 Tournament, held in Redondo Beach, California, boasted some of the West's best teams. FOX Sports Next caught up with a few of the prospects participating in the tournament to get the latest on their recruitment.

*Riverside (Calif.) JW North tight end Marcus Baugh, who recently committed to Ohio State, says he is happy with his choice and has no thoughts about wavering from the Buckeyes. Baugh will most likely take his official visit after his senior season.

*Sherman Oaks (Calif.) Notre Dame quarterback Kelly Hilinski recently returned from a visit to Colorado, which he enjoyed. He originally planned to continue on to Arkansas (currently holds an offer from the program) but postponed his trip for a later date.

*Menifee (Calif.) Heritage running back Jamal Morrow has been talking with Oregon State, BYU, UCLA, Utah State, Colorado, UNLV, and Nevada. The three programs that stand out most? The Bruins, Beavers, and Buffs.

*Fontana (Calif.) Summit running back Justin Strong has heard from Boise State, Oregon State, Oregon, and San Jose State. Though he plays on both sides of the ball for his high school team, the Broncos are recruiting him at running back and Strong is hoping to take a visit to Idaho.

*Harbor City (Calif.) Narbonne linebacker Keishawn Bierria recently picked up an offer from San Diego State and plans to take a visit to campus next month. He's also hearing from Iowa State, Iowa, Oregon, and Oregon State.

*Rancho Cucamonga (Calif.) defensive back Tahaan Goodman has visited UCLA, Arizona State, California, and USC (where his teammate and friend Chris Hawkins recently committed). Goodman is planning on waiting until after his senior season and his official visits before making his decision; it could come at the Army All-American Game.

*Fontana (Calif.) Summit cornerback Charles Okonkwo holds offers from Boise State and San Diego State and has been receiving interest from Washington, Washington State, and Colorado, but has no clear leaders quite yet.

*Anaheim (Calif.) Servite 2014 cornerback Demetric Woodard recently took a visit to San Diego State and is hoping for an Aztec offer. He'll be visiting Arizona State next weekend, followed by visits to Auburn and Houston in June.

*La Verne (Calif.) Damien wide receiver Josh Savage has received letters from California, Colorado, Oregon, Oregon State, and a few Division-2 and Ivy League programs. Savage is really interested in UCLA and said that should he receive an offer, he would commit to the Bruins right away.

*Monrovia (Calif.) wide receiver Mason Bryant recently picked up his first offer from Harvard, and has also been talking with Northwestern, Duke, Yale, and Vanderbilt. Bryant is still interested in Stanford and has plans to take a few visits in the upcoming months.

*Phoeniz (AZ) Mountain Pointe 2014 wide receiver Jalen Brown has been receiving interest from USC and Oregon; both programs' coaches have plans to watch him during spring ball. Brown is keeping all of his options open.

Scottsdale (AZ) Chaparral wide receiver Jake Roh holds offers from Oregon State, Duke, and Arizona and is hearing from UCLA, California, and Nebraska, all schools he is interested in. Roh says he's "wide open and is considering everyone."
