Vista (Calif.) cornerback Stefan McClure, the top pure cover corner in the West, will make his decision this week.
"I will be making my choice on schools at Vista High on Thursday the 27th at 8 a.m. (PST)," said McClure.
The four-star cornerback, ranked fourth nationally, is down to four schools.
Hobbi Does Too
The top offensive guard in the West that is still on the board is Scottsdale (Ariz.) Saguaro's Cyrus Hobbi.
According to Jason Jewell of Scout.com, Hobbi will announce between the Sun Devils, Bruins and Trojans on Friday at 1 p.m. MST.
The Latest on Grimble
But his father dismissed that report as erroneous.
"Jalen hasn't decommitted from USC," said Jerry Grimble, his father. "There is a lot of stuff out there, and everyone is speaking for Jalen but me and Jalen. He hasn't decommitted. He took a visit to Miami last week and he's going up to UCLA this week. But he committed so early (to USC) that he wants to take a couple of visits. I don't know where all this news is coming from that he decommitted and that he committed to Miami. He hasn't decommitted."
The five-star defensive lineman has had a host of in-home visitors and has another one still coming, with USC, UCLA, Nebraska (John Papuchis), Florida (Brian White) and Miami (Jethro Franklin) all having been in and UCLA head coach Rick Neuheisel will be in this week.
"Coach Neuheisel has been recruiting Jalen since Day One, and hasn't stopped," said Jerry Grimble.
Lucien Winding Things Down
Encino (Calif.) Crespi receiver Devin Lucien is the highest-rated receiver still left on the board, and with a visit to Colorado and UCLA the last two weeks, he's got one more visit coming up to Miami.
This week he'll host a plethora of in-homes.
"Coach (Norm) Chow is coming on Tuesday, and then Coach Kennedy and Coach Bieniemy are coming this week. (Miami) Coach (George) McDonald and Coach (Brennan) Carroll are coming this week and already Coach Golden has come out. Also Coach (Rick) Neuheisel is coming home for a visit, and me and my mom are going to UCLA to meet the new offensive coordinator, coach Mike Johnson on Wednesday. I'm not sure which day Coach Neuheisel is coming. And then Arizona State is coming with Coach (Noel) Mazzone and Coach (Steve) Broussard. I have a lot of visits coming in."
Lucien said he'll be announcing on Signing Day between Arizona State, Colorado, Miami, UCLA and Utah.
Newport Beach (Calif.) Newport Harbor defensive lineman J.B. Salem committed to Stanford last March, but after filling out the application for admission, he had to wait to get word back from Stanford.
Salem visited Stanford officially in mid-January and while he waited, UCLA came into the picture, inviting him in for an official, which he took last weekend, but they hadn't offered.
On Monday night, Salem said that the Bruins offered him.
But that paled compared to the the news that came on Tuesday, when Salem received word that he had been admitted to The Farm.
So with his admission into Stanford secure, Salem updated where he stands.
"Because of my admission into Stanford, I have essentially come to my final decision," said Salem. "I will be a Stanford Cardinal for this upcoming football season."
With that news under his belt, Salem will welcome Stanford head coach David Shaw into his home on Wednesday.
"Coach Shaw and I are having lunch tomorrow at my house," said Salem.
Big Week for Washington
The end of season run that took Washington to the Holiday Bowl is paying huge dividends, and no school out West has had a better week recruiting-wise than the Huskies.
It started on middle of last week when Van Nuys (Calif.) Montclair Prep lineman Stephan Nembot switched his commitment from Washington State to Washington, and then a day later, Los Angeles (Calif.) Dorsey receiver Marvin Hall committed to the Huskies.
Even the loss of quarterback Joseph Gray, Hall's Dorsey teammate to San Jose State wasn't painful because two days later, they picked up a commitment from Murrieta (Calif.) Vista Murrieta quarterback Derrick Brown. Then on Monday, Oakland (Calif.) McClymonds cornerback Marcus Peters went public that he had committed to the Huskies over the weekend.
Finally Monday night, the Huskies got their biggest boost when four-star offensive tackle Paulay Asiata, from Honolulu (Hawaii) St. Louis, pledged purple and gold.
And a Good One For Ducks
Oregon landed a pair of coveted recruits of their own in the last week, one which will bolster their offensive line and one which spruces up their receivers corps
Koa Ka'ai from Honolulu (Hawaii) Kamehameha, pledged to the Ducks first.
"The closeness to home and the overall better living experience I'll have," said Ka'ai. "I'll have family about four hours away."
On Sunday, Fresno (Calif.) Central receiver B.J. Kelley followed suit.
"I committed on my visit," said Kelley. "I spent most of the time with Coach (Scott) Frost and told him and Coach (Chip) Kelly. There is a good chance for me to come in and play. The three of us receivers, me Tacoi (Sumler) and Devon (Blackmon), there is a good chance we can play early. We really just have to work hard and get ready for this."
