West: Preseason Top Ten Outside Linebackers
Location: Concord, Calif.
High School: De La Salle
Size: 6-2/220
Recruiting: Committed to USC
The Skinny: After good performances at the SoCal NFTC and Oakland NFTC, Hutchings was solid all week at The Opening.  But for Hutchings, you really appreciate the kind of player he is on Friday nights, where he's helped lead De La Salle to the CIF State Open Division title the past two seasons, and has never lost to a team from California.
Location: San Diego, Calif.
High School: Lincoln
Size: 6-2, 208
Recruiting: Notre Dame, Oregon, UCLA, USC, Washington
The Skinny: Robinson has shown at a number of camps that he's one of the top athletes in the region.  A gifted basketball player, when Robinson shifted his attention from AAU hoops to football, he excelled, showing his best at Gridiron Kings in Orlando.  The more natural football player of he and twin brother Tyree.
Location: Bellevue, Wash.
High School: Bellevue
Size: 6-2/215
Recruiting: Committed to UCLA
The Skinny: Jack is another two-way standout who plays running back and outside ‘backer. He's a dynamic athlete on both sides of the ball but projects best on the defensive side of the ball. He had a hand injury that kept him out for much of the spring, but he was able to perform at Gridiron Kings and looked very good in Orlando..
Location: Westlake Village, Calif.
High School: Oaks Christian
Size: 6-2/215
Recruiting: Committed to UCLA
The Skinny: Judge is the top defensive player for one of the state's top programs. He has excellent size and toughness and could bulk up in to an inside ‘backer in college or play as a weakside ‘backer. He didn't do a lot of camps, instead, choosing to focus on Oaks 7on and their new head coach.

Location: Santa Margarita, Calif.
High School: Santa Margarita
Size: 6-3/205
Recruiting: Committed to Washington
The Skinny: On a team loaded offensively, O'Brien is the heart and soul of the Eagles defense, the top team in Southern California and a top 10 player nationally.  Can play safety or linebacker and projects best to outside linebacker in college.
