Mission Viejo has been one of the perennial state powerhouse programs for some time now yet for reasons unknown, many of their players don't get recruited at the level their talent would dictate.
Although it's still early in the process, linebacker Christian LaValle looks like that guy who isn't getting the attention he deserves. LaValle is one of the top inside 'backers in the area and shows up very well on film. He's a tough, physical kid who plays angry and makes a ton of plays.
He can bend, shows good lateral mobility, is instinctive, hits like a truck and plays with a ton of passion and energy. He's a player we think can play for a lot of programs out West and beyond but so far, his recruitment has yet to get cranked up.
