West Recruiting Notebook

A look at the latest news and notes from out West in this week's notebook...

Another Big Week for Trojans

Ho-hum, another week for USC, another couple of big commitments for the Trojans.

A week after picking up two players ranked #2 at their position nationally, and another top 10 prospect, USC made it happen.  Again.  Twice.

They started the week getting a pledge from Jalen Ramsey, a top 10 cornerback from Tennessee.

Then they returned to a school that has long been good to them, Mission Viejo (Calif.), to get a pledge from one of the premier safeties in the country, Max Redfield.

Redfield became USC's 11th commit from the Scout 300.

  • When the Elite 11 was named this week in Redondo Beach, the West had nearly half the members of the Elite 11.  Five Western quarterbacks were selected to the Elite 11, including Luke Del Rio (Oklahoma State commit), Jared Goff (California commit), Johnny Stanton (Nebraska commit), Zack Greenlee (uncommitted) and Max Browne (USC).

  • El Toro (Calif.) quarterback Conner Manning committed to Utah.
  • Monrovia (Calif.) linebacker Brett Walsh committed to Northwestern.
  • Torrey Pines (Calif.) offensive tackle Jacob Alsadek committed to Arizona.
  • Honolulu (Hawaii) St. Louis linebacker Colton Goeas committed to Tennessee.
  • Santa Margarita (Calif.) defensive end Nick Begg committed to Arizona State.

  • Fresno (Calif.) Central 2014 safety Devon Brewer was offered by Nevada.
  • Sherman Oaks (Calif.) Notre Dame running back Khalfani Muhammad got an offer from Houston.
  • Fresno (Calif.) Central 2014 defensive end Tashon Smallwood was offered by Nevada.
  • Cerritos (Calif.) Gahr cornerback Patrick Enewally got an offer from Boise State.
