Friday Prospect Preview: Playoffs

A big clash in the SacJoaquin Section, involving one of UCLA's commits, is the headliner in playoff action in the prep ranks...

Game of the Week: Stockton Lincoln vs. Elk Grove Pleasant Grove
In a rematch of a regular season game won by Pleasant Grove, Lincoln and UCLA commit Brandin Cooks take on Pleasant Grove, home to the West's top prospect in the 2012 class, offensive lineman Arik Armstead.  Cooks is coming off a big performance in Lincoln's first round win, when he had nearly 200 yards receiving and three touchdowns.

Lakewood vs. San Clemente
The Tritons have a pair of 2012 studs in offensive tackle Kyle Murphy and quarterback Travis Wilson, while the Lancers have some 2012 prospects of their own in receivers Malik Gilmore and Darius Powe.  But the main guys to watch for Lakewood are UCLA commit Torian White and recruit Todd Barr, who are on the offensive and defensive lines, respectively.

Serra vs. Beverly Hills
Four of California's top prospects will be in action in a first-round playoff game.  The state's top receiver (George Farmer), safety (Marqise Lee), outside linebacker (Jason Gibson) and defensive end (Greg Townsend), will face off against each other as the top-seeded Cavs look to repeat in the CIF-SS playoffs and return to the CIF State Bowl Championship games.
