Scout Out West: Redlands vs. Los Osos

Scout takes a look at the top prospects from the Redlands-Los Osos game, including UCLA commit Craig Lee and Oregon State commit Victor Bolden...

Game Scouted:
Redlands (Calif.) vs. Rancho Cucamonga (Calif.) Los Osos

Scout Out West
Craig Lee – 6-0/188 - RB – Redlands (Calif.) - 2013
Recruiting: Committed to UCLA
Scouting Report: is the No. 2 running back in California, and looked like it, with a workmanlike game where he carried the ball 26 times for 184 yards, including 48 yards on five carries on the decisive drive that put Redlands ahead. As the game went on, Lee, a UCLA commit, got stronger, peeling off 8-9 yard runs, and wearing down the Los Osos defense. What stands out the most about Lee is his balance and vision.  He can take a hit, keep his feet, and keep churning the legs.  He's a physical back who does a great job of running low and hitting the hole.
Walter Jones – 6-0/175 – CB – Redlands (Calif.) - 2013
Recruiting: Top schools include Nevada, Oregon State, Utah and Washington State
Scouting Report: Jones had a trifecta night, intercepting a pass, recording a sack on a cornerback blitz and catching a touchdown pass on a halfback throw. The sack set up offensive drive for Jones' reception. Jones plays corner and receiver, but could grow into a safety in college. He looks noticeably bigger since when we saw him in the spring.
Victor Bolden – 5-9/165 – WR – Rancho Cucamonga (Calif.) Los Osos - 2013
Recruiting: Committed to Oregon State
Scouting Report: Bolden is one of the fastest players in the West, but the offense didn't do a good job using his game-breaking skills. Some of that was due to the coverage Redlands slapped on him, but there were times he was wide open and no look would go his way. Los Osos ran some Wildcat in the fourth quarter, and Bolden quickly picked up 30+ yards on three plays, then they inexplicably went away from it and the offense stunted. The Oregon State verbal also played defense and had a big hit on a Redlands receiver that knocked a sure reception and first down into an incompletion.
Carlos Tobar – 6-1/180 – DB – Rancho Cucamonga (Calif.) Los Osos - 2014
Recruiting: Interest in several Western schools.
Scouting Report: Tobar is a rangy prospect, with great closing speed, and big hitting ability.  Does a good job covering the field and getting into position to break up passes, or make the quick hit.  A couple of times, though, he went for the big hit, instead of playing the ball, costing himself an interception.  Still, his aggressiveness makes him an intriguing safety prospect.
