Vegas Pylon 7v7 Day 2: Biggins Notebook

Mar. 3 -- Here's a recruiting update on some of the top prospects we saw on day two of the Pylon 7v7 tournament.

*Rialto (Calif.) Carter linebacker Lokeni Toailoa said he plans to graduate early and enroll at his school of choice in time for spring ball. The athlete said he remains wide open but mentioned Notre Dame, Washington, USC, UCLA and Utah as the schools recruiting him hardest. According to a few of his Ground Zero teammates, Oregon could be the team to beat and a decision could come at the UA AA Game.

*Upland (Calif.) receiver Grant Porter has offers from Washington State, Kansas, Colorado State and Utah and said the Cougs are recruiting him the hardest. USC is also showing heavy interest and Porter will camp there in the summer. If the Trojans were to offer, there's a good chance he jumps on it. Porter said he'll likely take visits to Kansas and Washington State this spring.

*Chandler (Ariz.) receiver N'Keal Harry said USC is recruiting him the hardest right now and he'll be on campus this weekend for an unofficial visit while in town for the NIKE Camp. Harry said Arizona State, Arizona and Texas A&M are the other schools showing the most attention and the Sun Devils were his first offer. The WR said Ohio State was the school he grew up rooting for and he would love an offer from the Buckeyes as well as Oregon, Notre Dame and Alabama.

*Mission Hills (Calif.) Alemany receiver Jarrin Pierce is still waiting for his first offer but is hearing from Washington State, Duke, Washington, San Diego State and San Jose State. Washington State is the dream offer right now and he said he loves the offense and hopes to take a visit sometime in the spring or summer.

*La Habra (Calif.) linebacker Jacob Colacion is waiting for his first offer to roll in but he's a Pac 12 level recruit and very talented. He plays to attend the Sound Mind, Sound Body camp in the Midwest and will also camp with Arizona State and California. Colorado State and Wyoming are also showing interest and the Sun Devils are a solid leader right now.

*Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco '17 corner Keith Taylor is a great looking DB with a ton of upside. At 6-2, 180 pounds, he's a long, lean, athletic player and should be a national recruit in two years. Notre Dame, ASU and Arizona are showing early interest and he'll camp with UCLA as well as the Sound Mind, Sound Body Camp. The Bruins are his top school right now followed closely by Oregon.

*Harbor City (Calif.) Narbonne linebacker Lawson Hall has early offers from Colorado State and Nevada and is also hearing from Arizona, Washington State, USC and UCLA. He'll camp with UCLA and Nevada and plans to do an official visit to Colorado State in the fall. Arizona is his leader right now and Hall said he would love to get out to Tucson for a visit as well.

*Anaheim (Calif.) Servite defensive back Keyon Riley has offers from Colorado State, San Diego State, Oregon State, Washington and just landed Washington State on Saturday. He's also hearing from ASU, Cal and Notre Dame. Riley said Washington was his dream offer and added Coach Lake is recruiting him harder anyone. He'll visit the Huskies in the summer and hopes to camp with the Irish as well.

*Thousand Oaks (Calif.) quarterback Max Gilliam is still waiting for his first offer to roll in but is hearing from Arizona, Washington State, ASU and UCLA. He's planning to visit UA and ASU this Monday and said the Bruins are currently recruiting him the hardest. His mother attended UCLA and that's his childhood favorite as well.

*Downey (Calif.) linebacker Darrian Franklin plans to make a summer commitment and USC is the team to beat right now. He's also looking at Michigan, UCLA, Arizona and Oregon and said LSU could be very close to offering. He'll visit UCLA March 7 and plans to check out Michigan when spring ball starts as well. If the Tigers offer, he'll likely take a visit to Baton Rouge as well.

*Los Angeles (Calif.) Salesian '17 athlete Deommodore Lenoir has racked up offers from Tennessee, Oregon State, Miami, Boston College, Boise State, UCLA and Cal. UCLA is the early favorite, followed by Tennessee, Oregon State and Boise State, because of the location and his desire to stay close to home but he plans to wait until his senior and take his official visits before committing. USC was the childhood favorite but he's not hearing much from the Trojans right now.

*Gardena (Calif.) Serra defensive back C.J. Pollard is planning unofficial visits to ASU (March 20), Utah (April 25) for spring game and Cal (still working on a date). Most feel USC is a near lock but Pollard denied that, saying he's still wide open and giving everyone a fair shot. He's hoping to hear more from UCLA and wants to take official visits to Michigan and ASU. If he's invited to one of the AA Bowls, he'll make his decision there, if not, he'll try and take all five official visits and commit, 'whenever it feels right.'

*Fresno (Calif.) Clovis West athlete Darian Owens said Washington, Oregon and UCLA are the schools recruiting him the hardest and those are also the three schools he knows he'll officially visit. Huskies are recruiting him as an athlete, Ducks and Bruins like him at receiver, which is his desired college position. Michigan is another school he likes but the Wolverines have yet to offer. Owens said he could take a couple of unofficial visits but doesn't have anything planned right now. There is no time table for a decision but if he's invited to one of the AA Bowls, he'll likely commit at that time."
