Prospect Recap: Week Eleven

We look at how UCLA's commits and recruits did in playoff action...

Game of the Week:  Long Beach Poly def. Orange Lutheran, 18-16
The Jackrabbits escaped with an 18-16 win over the Lancers.  The Lancers top prospect is 2015 Scout 50 defensive end Keisean Lucier-South. Lucier-South plays on the edge but probably projects better as an outside linebacker in college. He's about 6-foot-5, 210 pounds and would need to add a lot of weight to stay on the line. He's athletic and moves well enough to play linebacker and had a big sack late in the game that showed his explosiveness. The Lancers best player was San Jose State linebacker commit Aisea Tongilava. Tongilava is a very active player with a great nose for the ball. Cory Hollowell is an intriguing corner with great size. He looks all of 6-foot-2, is very fluid and plays physical. For Poly, Juju Smith showed why he's a top 10 national prospect with two huge touchdown catches and several physical tackles at safety. Smith is an incredible talent on both sides of the ball and it will be tough to keep him off the field as a freshman, wherever he winds up. Junior corner Iman Marshall continued his lock down ways and has yet to give up a reception all season. It's an amazing stat but Marshall is an incredible talent with plus size, toughness and quickness. Junior defensive end Joseph Wicker has gotten bigger and stronger and was physical all night. He has the size to play inside or outside in college and is a high motor player as well.

Bellflower St. John Bosco vs. Agoura
Five-star quarterback Josh Rosen was 8-for-11 for 270 yards and five touchdowns as the Braves rolled the Chargers, 69-24.  UCLA target Jaleel Wadood had 17 tackles from his safety spot and added four receptions for 58 yards and two touchdowns in the win.

Gardena Serra def. Oxnard Pacifica, 48-16
UCLA recruit Dwight Williams had a pick-six just two minutes into the game and also blocked a punt that was returned for a touchdown.  UCLA commit Jordan Lasley had a touchdown reception as did UCLA target Adoree Jackson.

West Hills Chaminade def. Inglewood Morningside, 71-8
Chaminade got a blowout before their tough test with Ventura in the second round, routing Morningside.  Brad Kaaya was 7-for-11 for 207 yards and two touchdowns in just a half, UCLA commit Jojo McIntosh scored a touchdown and Donovan Lee scored three.

El Cerrito def. Mill Valley Tamalpais, 64-8
Another monster night by UCLA commit Adarius Pickett made it a breeze for the Gauchos in their first round playoff win.  Pickett returned the opening kickoff 84-yards for a touchdown and ran for two more touchdowns and was out midway through the second quarter with the Gauchos building a 64-0 first half lead.

Corona Centennial def. Etiwanda, 56-23
The Huskies got their playoff run started right with a 33-pount rout of Etiwanda.  UCLA commit Barry Ware had four catches for 112 yards, including a 93-yard touchdown, one of two scores on the night for him.  UCLA target Tre Watson ran for 249 yards on 29 carries and scored three touchdowns in the win.

Rocklin Whitney def. Elk Grove Cosumnes Oaks, 34-8
