Larkins is one of two high major Div I prospects at Oakland Tech, the other being running back Marshawn Lynch, our early season choice as the top back on the West Coast. Larkins, 5-11, 190 pounds is one of the most versatile defensive backs in the West and could play safety or corner in college.
As a junior, Larkins totaled 110 tackles and picked off seven passes on defense to go along with 800 all-purpose yards and 13 touchdowns on offense earning All-City honors for a second straight year. He has good size and speed and despite being hobbled by a sore hip flexor, showed good cover skills at the NorCal Nike Camp last May.
"I suffered the hip flexor injury last Spring and had to miss a lot of the track season," Larkins said. "I also wasn't able to camp with anyone but I'm 100% now."
On the recruiting front, Larkins said he has offers from Cal, UCLA, Oregon, Arizona State, Utah, Colorado, Wyoming, Oregon State, Arizona, Washington State, Washington and USC.
"My top five right now would be Oregon, Cal, UCLA, Colorado and Arizona State," Larkins said. "I want to take all my trips before committing anywhere and I don't plan to make my decision until late in the process."
