Saddleback (CA)RB Patrick Gates and Victor Valley (AZ) WR Jahan Jones both officially signed and sent their papers in this week.
Gates has been the most talked about recruit since he first expressed interest in the Lakers. A four star recruit out of high school, Gates originally signed with San Diego State but did not qualify. He went to Saddleback and committed to Colorado but academics has forced him to look to the D2 level and Grand Valley.
The 5'11, 195-lb Gates will play running back and wide receiver and may even get looks as a return man and defensive back. Out of high school, he ran a 4.41 at the NIKE camp, the third best mark at the camp.
Jahan Jones is a 6'1, 185-lb wide receiver. He signed with Alabama State originally after spending time with Victor Valley but has signed with the Lakers.
Jones is a deep threat with 4.4 speed. At Victor Valley he caught 38 passes for 900 yards and 12 touchdowns.
