Preview: B2G Elite Camp

The B2G Elite Camp at UCLA will be loaded this weekend. Check out all the prospects that are expected, especially a number of UCLA recruits...

The 12th installment of the B2G Elite Camp will kick off this weekend on the campus of UCLA, with several of the nation's elite prospects.


This year, some of the top offensive skill prospects out West are expected in Westwood.

The quarterback position is led by a couple of passers who played on B2G's 7on7 Team in Vegas at the Badger Elite 7on7.

Marc Evans from Ventura (Calif.) St. Bonaventure took over the duties in the playoffs for B2G to lead them to the title and will head down to Dallas next weekend for the national 7on7. But first things first.

He'll be joined by his B2G teammate Matt Morin, from Temecula (Calif.) Chaparral, who's had a big camp circuit.

A couple of top 2013 prospects will be there too in Harbor City (Calif.) Narbonne's Troy Williams and Sherman Oaks (Calif.) Notre Dame's Kelly Hilinski.

The running backs will be paced by Robert Lewis, also a B2G member, and a commit to SMU out of South Gate (Calif.) South East. Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman's Shaquille Powell and Tustin (Calif.) back Tyler Siudzinski will also be on hand. Washington commit Tairen Owens from Pasadena (Calif.) Muir will also be in attendance.

The receiver position features two Scout 300 prospects in Venice (Calif.) receiver Gabriel Marks, who's been a huge part of B2G's success on the 7on7 circuit, as well as Carson (Calif.) pass-catcher Darreus Rogers, a USC commit.

Two Arizona State commits, Long Beach (Calif.) Poly's Richard Smith and Upland (Calif.) receiver Kenny Lawler will be there as will others like Los Angeles (Calif.) Dorsey's Michael Robert, Camarillo (Calif.) receiver Jake Maulhardt and Richmond (Calif.) Kennedy's Kenny Walker.

The tight ends on hand will be Rocklin (Calif.) Whitney's Jalen Cope-Fitzpatrick, like Marks' a major weapon for B2G, Nevada commit Cody Tuttle from Westlake (Calif.) and Los Angeles (Calif.) Loyola 2013 prospect Jack Neuheisel.


The linebackers have some serious talent in Murrieta (Calif.) Vista Murrietta four-star Jeremy Castro and his Inland Empire rival Joe Robinson from Temecula (Calif.) Chaparral.

Los Angeles (Calif.) Dorsey's Jeremiah Allison and Anaheim (Calif.) Servite's Butch Pauu are two of the best linebacker prospects in California and they'll be in attendance as well as Culver City (Calif.) Kahlil Pettway.

One of the best two-way prospects in the West, Torrance (Calif.) North running back/linebacker Ryan McDaniel, will be there.

Two Gardena (Calif.) Serra prospects, Kache Palacio and Thomas Brown, will be there too.

At cornerback, Pasadena (Calif.) Muir four-star prospect Kevon Seymour is the headliner of a good group of corners.

Joining him will be Gardena (Calif. )Serra's Raymond Ford, Compton (Calif.) Dominguez's Brandon Beaver, Inglewood (Calif.) Devian Shelton, Stevenson Ranch (Calif.) West Ranch's Jeffrey Coprich and Los Angeles (Calif.) Loyola's Chaz Anderson a commit to Boise State.

A top 2013 prospect, Steven Mitchell from Mission hills (Calif.) Alemany will also be working with the corners and receivers.

At safety, Scout 300 prospect Seth Jacobs from Arroyo Grande (Calif.) is the top prospect but some risers like Palmdale (Calif.) Houston Haynes and M.J. Bailey from San Marcos (Calif.) also are set.

The top 2013 prospect to watch at safety is Encino (Calif.) Crespi's Tyler Foreman.


This year, some of the top offensive and defensive linemen in the country are expected in Westwood.

Three five-star prospects will be on hand with a trio of four-stars invited.

The headliners are the top two offensive guards in the country, Puyallup (Wash.) Joshua Garnett and Encino (Calif.) Crespi's Jordan Simmons, both Scout Top 50 members, as well as Lakewood (Wash.) Lakes tackle Zach Banner.

Just outside the top 50, but a part of the Scout 300 are Encinitas (Calif.) La Costa Canyon's Erik Magnuson, a Michigan commit, Pleasant Grove (Utah) lineman Brandon Fanaika and Las Vegas (Nev.) Desert Pines' Jeremiah Poutasi.

Other prospects to watch are Ventura (Calif.) St. Bonaventure's David Barajas, Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco's Beau Boyster (an Arizona commit) and a top 2013 prospect in Orange (Calif.) Lutheran's John Lopez.


Leading the group is 2013 defensive end Jaylen Ruiz from Fresno (Calif.) San Joaquin Memorial. We've seen Ruiz quite a bit this spring, and he's worthy of the hype.

Recent San Diego State commit Darien Barrett from Inglewood (Calif.) will be on hand as will his teammate, Chauntez Jackson.

Two other under-the-radar types, Los Angeles (Calif.) Dorsey's Justin Johnson and Corona (Calif.) Drew James, who both have brothers playing at UCLA, will be at the camp.

Others to watch include Ventura (Calif.) St. Bonaventure 2013 prospect Domenic DiPoalo and Lemoore (Calif.) Jacob Henry.

Brandon is in his seventh year with, currently as the National Recruiting Analyst and West Regional Manager. Prior to joining the Scout Recruiting Team, he was a team recruiting writer.  He's been covering recruiting for the Scout Network since 2003.
