Cal a longtime favorite for receiver Isaah Crocker

Recruiting news and notes from day two of the adidas 7v7 National Championships in Las Vegas...


Four-star wide receiver Isaah Crocker added offers from Arizona State and Utah in recent weeks and said he's currently in the process of trying to see if he'll be able to fit in trips this spring and summer. He raved about recent stops at USC and UCLA, and said he also has his sights set on an official to Notre Dame down the road. California has been a longtime favorite and Crocker said the Golden Bears are pushing as hard as anyone.


Murrieta (Calif.) Vista Murrieta four-star receiver Khalil Shakir has added a trio of offers in the last two weeks, from Arizona, Hawaii and Nevada.  Previous offers for Shakir came from Colorado, UCLA and Washington State.  Shakir said he thinks that Arizona State could be the next school to offer him.


Corona (Calif.) Eleanor Roosevelt four-star wide receiver Chase Williams took a visit to nearby UCLA a couple weeks ago to meet new position coach Jimmie Dougherty and he said the Bruins definitely moved up his list. Williams camped there last summer and landed an offer, and said UCLA is right in the thick of his recruitment once again. He's eyeing other visits and could announce a decision by the end of the summer.


Calabasas (Calif.) receiver Nikko Hall hit double digit offers this week when Arizona State offered.  Hall said new receivers coach Rob Likens extended the offer to him.  Other offers standing out to Hall include Louisville, Nebraska, Oregon, Oregon State, UCLA and USC.  Hall took an unofficial visit to UCLA on Friday before he headed out to Las Vegas. 


Mission Hills (Calif.) Alemany safety Ely Doyle has double-digit offers and said some of the more significant ones were from Northwestern, UCLA, Utah, UNLV and Washington State. Doyle said communication has picked up with the remaining in-state Pac-12 schools, Cal, Stanford and USC as well as with Purdue.


Stephan Blaylock is one of the better safeties in the West region and the Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco standout is adding options seemingly every week. Colorado and Oregon are new contenders, with Blaylock particularly mentioning new Ducks defensive backs coach Keith Heyward as one that is expressing a lot of interest. The four-star safety recently visited UCLA, which offered early on, and he said the Bruins have set the bar high heading into the spring.


Etiwanda (Calif.) receiver Geordon Porter landed his first offer last week, from Arizona State and then added subsequent offers from Hawaii and San Jose.  Porter said he's been talking with Washington, Oregon State and Purdue as well as with Washington State, where his brother, Grant Porter plays.


Ralen Goforth picked up his first scholarship from UCLA recently and, with his brother Randall having played there the last five years, it's a big one early in his recruitment. The 2019 linebacker prospect from powerhouse Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco said his visit to UCLA was really eye opening and he was able to meet with several defensive coaches. He intends to take a trip up to Cal later this spring.
