Nike Camp Recruiting Notebook

Here's a look at the recruiting of some of the standouts at this last weekend's Nike Football Training Camp in Palo Alto, including prospects like Scott Starr, Jeremiah Allison and Eric Magnuson...

Many of the West's top prospects were at the Stanford Nike Football Training Camp on Sunday and while a number of top prospects are committed, such as Bart Houston (Wisconsin), Zach Kline (California), Tanner Mangum (BYU) and Jaydon Mickens (USC), much more remain uncommitted.

  • San Clemente (Calif.) offensive tackle Kyle Murphy, a Scout Top 50 prospect, said that, while he had no favorites, California, Oregon, Stanford and USC stood out for him.  Alabama and Oklahoma are the most recent offers for Murphy.

  • Encinitas (Calif.) La Costa Canyon tackle Erik Magnuson has over twenty offers, with Cal and Oklahoma the most recent offers for him.

  • Concord (Calif.) De La Salle 2013 linebacker Michael Hutchings has an early offer from Cal, but said that USC, Oregon and Arizona State have been picking up their interest in him and that Cal and USC stand out.

  • Los Angeles (Calif.) Dorsey linebacker Jeremiah Allison, who has offers from UCLA, SMU, Colorado State and Boise State, took an unofficial visit to Stanford on Saturday and said the Cardinal staff just wants him to bump his SAT score up some and an offer should follow.

  • Elk Grove (Calif.) Cosumnes Oaks cornerback Marcus Rios has been a commit to Boise State for a few months, but that hasn't stopped schools from offering, with Arizona the most recent and Washington on the verge.

  • Fresno (Calif.) Bullard tight end Ian Taubler, whose offers include Oregon State and Fresno State said that UCLA, Utah and Arizona would be by this next week to check on him.

  • Fontana (Calif.) Summit cornerback Donte Deayon, who was named the DB MVP, got his first offer last week from Boise State, and said that USC, UCLA and Oregon are all showing a good deal of interest.

  • Fresno (Calif.) Washington Union receiver Deontay Greenberry said he'd be narrowing his list down to seven schools by June and that he'd like to decide in August or September.  Boise State and Alabama are his most recent offers and Greenberry said that Notre Dame stands atop his list.

  • Richmond (Calif.) Kennedy receiver Kenny Walker said that Cal and Oregon State are leading his group of offers while Oregon is also heavily in the mix (despite lacking an offer).

  • Norco (Calif.) linebacker Scott Starr said that UCLA, Arizona State and Colorado are recruiting him the hardest of the schools among those that have offered. USC is hitting him the heaviest of the non-offers, and Florida, Oregon and Notre Dame have all picked up their interest.

  • Corvallis (Ore.) offensive lineman Isaac Seumalo, the OL MVP, took an unofficial visit to Stanford on Saturday and the Cardinal and Oregon State, where his dad coaches, are both doing well, but he said he has no leader and is wide open, despite speculation he's a lock for the Beavers.

  • Danville (Calif.) Monte Vista cornerback Dalis Bruce, whose first offer came from Oregon State, said Colorado, Cal and Oregon have all accelerated their interest in him.
