The nation's top safety, Murrieta (Calif.) Vista Murrieta's Su'a Cravens, stands atop the list in the final rankings for the West...
West: Final Top Ten Safeties
Committed to USC
Cravens is not just the top safety in the West, he's the top overall prospect in the region as well. He would also be the top linebacker in the region and would rank among the top receivers in the area as well. The USC commit plays primarily linebacker in H.S and is a explosive hitter who closes on an opposing ball carrier faster than anyone in the West.
One of the most versatile players the Golden State has produced, Cravens was
selected to the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.

Redfield might be the best all around athlete in this group
and doubles as a wide receiver and could definitely play on the offensive side
of the ball in college but was recruited to play safety. Redfield's best asset
is the range he covers and the amount of plays he makes in the secondary. He's
always around the football and his explosive leaping ability allows him to make
a ton of plays in the red zone on both sides of the ball. Selected
to play in the UnderArmour All-American Game.

Goodman exploded this past spring/summer and raised his
stock more than any other defensive back. He could be the most complete safety
on this list as he's both an explosive hitter and punishing hitter and has
excellent range and balls skills as well. He has a great frame that will be able
to hold more weight, runs very well and is a sure tackler. He breaks down very
well, runs right through opposing ball carriers and doesn't miss tackles. He
covers a ton of ground in the secondary and it's tough to find any real weakness
in Goodman's game. Goodman was selected to the U.S. Army All-American
