Poly is loaded all over and could have their most talented teams in years. DB Iman Marshall is one of the nation's top corners and will see time at receiver as well. Defensive lineman Joseph Wicker can play inside or outside, and has ten sacks in the first three games and that led UCLA to offer him last month.

Mater Dei has UCLA 2016 offensive line target Frank Martin and another 2016 standout in Curtis Robinson, who got his first offer this week, from Duke.
