Redlands (Calif.) East Valley's Kylie Fitts and Upland (Calif) Joe Mathis lead the West Defensive Ends rankings...
West: Preseason Top Ten Defensive Ends
Committed to USC
Fitts has anchored the REV defensive line for the past
couple of years and the West's top defensive end figures to do so again this
season. He didn't do many camps, other than USC's Rising Stars, but the
fact remains, with the pads on, there are few defensive prospects in the West
better than him.
There's still not much separating Mathis from Fitts for that
top spot in the region. Mathis was everywhere this spring and summer,
doing a number of camps and 7on7 tournaments, playing everything from defensive
end to linebacker. He lost a lot of weight to try and play linebacker, but
his best spot is defensive end, where he earned MVP honors at the SoCal NFTC.
Committed to Washington
In terms of physical upside, Farria has more than anyone on
this list. He's still raw, but athletically is off the charts. He had a
great performance at the UW Rising Stars Camp and then he committed to the
Huskies a few weeks later. If he gets everything taken care of off the
field, the Huskies will have gotten a good one.
