IMG/Madden 7on7 Recruiting Notebook

A look at some of the recruiting news and notes from the IMG/Madden 7on7 Tournament in Redondo Beach, Calif...

The top prospect in attendance is the region's top prospect, Murrieta (Calif.) Vista Murrieta safety Su'a Cravens, the five-star prospect and top 10 prospect nationally.

Cravens, who has 30+ offers from all over the country, said he still plans to visit Ohio State, Michigan and Nebraska officially in the fall.

But he did say that he could make a commitment before then.

"I could commit this month, I could commit in January," said Cravens.  "I really don't know.  But I do plan to visit Michigan, Nebraska and Ohio State officially.  I'm not sure where the other two visits will be though."

USC continues to do well for Cravens, and Chris Hawkins, the four-star cornerback from Rancho Cucamonga, who committed to USC earlier this month, was working on Cravens for much of the day.

San Marcos (Calif.) Mission Hills cornerback Devin Holiday got his second offer this week from Arizona, joining Hawaii, and he thinks more could be coming.

"It was a huge relief to get that offer from Arizona," said Holiday. "And I know Colorado, Washington State and Arizona State are coming by soon.

Etiwanda (Calif.) receiver Jordan Villamin has one offer, from Oregon State, but said that Colorado is showing more interest and he's planning to take an unofficial visit to Washington State, where former Etiwanda receiver Bobby Ratliff is now playing, during the spring.

Harbor City (Calif.) Narbonne quarterback Troy Williams visited Arizona and Arizona State last weekend and this week will be visiting UCLA unofficially and will end the month visiting Washington unofficially.

"The trips to Arizona and Arizona State were really good," said Williams.  "I had a good conversation with both of the coaches and I'm looking forward to going to UCLA and then Washington.

North Hollywood (Calif.) Harvard Westlake quarterback Chad Kanoff has one offer, from Vanderbilt, but said that schools like Northwestern, Duke and a number of Pac-12 schools would be coming by in the spring to watch him throw.

Upland (Calif.) cornerback Delvin Batiste was one of the top performers on Day One, and while he's waiting for his first offer, he thinks that could happen soon.

"A lot of coaches have told my coach they're going to come by this spring and check me out," said Batiste.  "We have a lot of coaches coming to check out JoJo (Joe Mathis, his four-star teammate), and they're going to see me while they're there.

Richmond (Calif.) Salesian has sent a couple of players to California in the past couple of years in running back Jahvid Best and offensive lineman Freddie Tagaloa.  So it's no surprise the Bears are back at Salesian recruiting.

According to Team 808 coach Tevita Ofahengaue, his receiver, Cliff Betson, has an offer from the Golden Bears, with Utah potentially close to offering.

 Riverside (Calif.) J.W. North tight end Marcus Baugh committed to Ohio State this week and he said he's thrilled with his decision to play for the Buckeyes.

"It's a great school with a great tradition, and a great coach in Urban Meyer," said Baugh.  "Those were the reasons I committed there." This weekend's IMG Madden 7on7 Tournament, held in Redondo Beach, California, boasted some of the West's best teams. FOX Sports Next caught up with a few of the prospects participating in the tournament to get the latest on their recruitment.

Rancho Cucamonga (Calif.) defensive back Tahaan Goodman has visited UCLA, Arizona State, California, and USC (where his teammate and friend Chris Hawkins recently committed).
