Cerritos - Recruiting Update

Cerriots has two prospects who will sign letters-of-intent with schools this week, so today we thought we'd look at their top prospects, where some are headed and which schools are in play for the others...

S Ron Davis - Davis, a talented safety prospect, will sign this week with a school and is choosing between Southeast Missouri and Stoneybrook.

Stats: 25 tackles and 1 tackle-for-loss


OL Kent Collins - Collins a center prospect who could play guard as well, will make his choice today between Eastern Michigan and Wyoming who just recently came in with an offer.


DL Kyle Peko - As the most highly-recruited player on the Falcons' roster, Peko has 18 offers, but narrowed things down to a top five of Washington State, Utah, Oregon State, Nebraska and Michigan State. He recently took his fifth and final official visit to Corvalis (Or.) last weekend and plans to make his decision shortly after we turn the calendars over to 2013.

Stats: 46 tackles, 3 sacks and 11 tackles-for-loss


DL Maataua Brown - Because of his size and athleticism, Brown can play anywhere along the defensive front and that versatility is why BYU offered so early. He committed to them during the summer and hasn't wavered from that decision.

Stats: 15 tackles, 1 sacks, 5 tackles-for-loss, 1 forced fumble, 1 fumble recovery


LB Chazz Ghaspie - Ghaspie is a big, physical middle linebacker prospect who is getting attention from Wyoming and Eastern Michigan, but still is waiting on his first offer. He has a chance to be a mid-year player in the right situation, so the hope is he finds a home soon. He was First Team All-Conference for the Falcons this season.

Stats: 80 tackles and 11.5 tackles-for-loss

CB Domonique McGee - McGee, a spring grad, recently visited Arizona, who has offered, and also has an offer from Colorado State as well. Expect more schools to come in on him in the coming weeks.

Stats: 34 tackles, 6 tackles-for-loss and 5 passes defensed


DL Filo Fonoti - Fonoti has a great frame and holds strong against the run. He would be a great fit as a nose tackle in the right system. He doesn't have any offers yet, but Sacramento State and Eastern Illinois are very close to extending him a full ride.

Stats: 15 tackles and 2 tackles-for-loss


CB Theo Chambers - Chambers, a coach's son, is a sticky corner who plays much more physical than his size would indicate. He has seen interest pick up recently from Eastern Michigan and Weber State.

Stats: 37 tackles and 1 interception


LB Jordan Allen - The sophomore could play all three linebacker spots, but was at his best this past season on the outside and he earned First Team All-Conference honors for his efforts. He is still waiting to see recruiting pick up, so schools have plenty of time to get into the mix.

Stats: 52 tackles, 2 sacks, 7 tackles-for-loss and 1 interception


CB Vai Peko - Peko would be a solid nickel corner at the next level after a solid sophomore season with the Falcons. He isn't very big, but he plays a physical brand of football. Several FCS schools are after him including Gardener Webb.

Stats: 29 tackles, 4 interceptions, 2 passes defensed and 2 blocked kicks


OL Tyler Burns - Burns has yet to garner much in the way of interest, but he is a two-time First Team All-Conference player.


OL Sean Rubalcava - Had a great two years with Cerritos, being named First Team All-Conference and First Team All-State as both a freshman and sophomore. He has offers from Connecticut and Texas State and has already visited both schools. More programs are expected to pick up interest in January.


TE Tristan Henderson - Henderson is a good-looking tight end prospect and had an early offer from Southern Mississippi, but it appears that may be up in the air with the coaching change. He also has an offer from Connecticut and is getting some interest from Illinois.

Stats: 11 receptions for 91 yards and 1 touchdown


WR Robert Abeyta - Abeyta has an offer from Middle Tennessee and Colorado State and Utah has been in to see him as well. He's a great possession receiver who led the Falcons in receiving this season.

Stats: 35 receptions for 679 yards and 9 touchdowns


WR Garion Manning - Manning is a solid inside receiver prospect whose ability deserves more attention, but he has some work to do to get qualified.

Stats: 22 receptions for 411 yards and 6 touchdowns


QB Morgan Fennell - Fennell is tough, evidenced by playing two games with a broken finger on his throwing hand, and a good leader. Despite missing a couple games due to various injuries, he had a solid season and the coaches think he is being vastly underrated at this point. He is big and can make all of the throws.

Stats: 58.5% completion rate for 1,786 yards with 19 touchdowns and 4 interceptions; 138 yards rushing and 2 touchdowns.
