Pylon 7v7 Day One Recruiting Notebook
Bellevue (Wash.) tight end Isaac Garcia remains solidly committed to USC, where he committed during the summer. The four-star said that the Trojans, though, like him as an outside linebacker, which he wants to play in college. He'll visit unofficially during spring break.
Santa Ana (Calif.) Mater Dei linebacker Curtis Robinson said that the Ohio State offer was a surprising offer, since the Buckeyes don't regularly recruit the West Coast and he was wowed by it. Robinson said that he doesn't have a top five and is pretty wide open. He said as of late, Ohio State, UCLA, Oregon, USC and Washington have been recruiting him the hardest and he thinks Utah could be the next school to offer him.
Lake Stevens (Wash.) quarterback Jacob Eason remains solidly committed to Georgia, even with the change of offensive coordintor to Brian Schottenheimer from Mike Bobo, now the head coach at Colorado State. Eason said Michigan and LSU came by to see him in January, but nothing has changed with his verbal to the Bulldogs. He said the extension that Mark Richt received through 2019 further cemented his commitment.
Los Angeles (Calif.) Loyola receiver David Long has 16 offers and said that Alabama and LSU have been talking with him quite a bit, and schools are saying athlete for him. Michigan and Oregon, though, like him as a cornerback. Long said he's still waiting for a USC offer and said that while he doesn't have a top five, the schools recruiting him the hardest are Washington, Michigan, Arizona State, Duke and UCLA.
Pittsburg (Calif.) cornerback Jordan Parker said that USC and Arizona State were standing out the most to him and that Washington, UCLA and Cal were right in the next tier for him. He plans to visit Arizona State and Oregon in the spring and thinks the Ducks could be closest to offering him.
Las Flores (Calif.) Tesoro quarterback Devon Modster has eight offers, and thinks that Utah could be next to offer as well as UCLA, who he will visit on March 7th. Modster was offered by Boise State, where his brother plays and said even with Cal's quarterback commitment, they're not completely out of the picture, with the Bears potentially taking two quarterbacks in this class, which they'll decide in spring.
Bakersfield (Calif.) linebacker Krys Barnes is up to 15 offers, with Cal the most recent offer for him, the Bears offering at their Junior Day. Barnes think UCLA is next to offer and he'll visit on March 14th.
Pittsburg (Calif.) safety Shurod Thompson, like Parker, said Arizona State and USC were the two standing out but that Cal and UCLA were recruiting him the hardest. He'll visit Oregon and Arizona State with Parker and said they're still a package deal.
Bellevue (Wash.) cornerback Isaiah Gilchrist has four offers, from Cal, USC, Washington and Washington State and the four-star said he'll visit Cal, UCLA and USC as well as Arizona and Arizona State during spring break.
Rohnert Park (Calif.) Rancho Cotate receiver Chris Taylor-Yamanoha was offered by Cal last week, a big offer for him, being close to home. Taylor-Yamanoha has ten offers and said that Arizona and Arizona State could be closest to offering him. He's hoping to visit both in the spring. Boise State, Cal and Louisville were some of the schools standing out to him.
