West Regional Recruiting Roundup

May 15 -- All the news and notes from the West in Scout's weekly Regional Recruiting Roundup...


Cohl Cabral - OT - Rancho Cucamonga (Calif.) Los Osos, Committed to Arizona State

Cabral was one of our favorite linemen at The Opening Los Angeles Regional, looking athletic and agile at left tackle with good punch and hand placement.

He narrowed down his choices to a final five and committed to Arizona State over the weekend, the Sun Devils being the most aggressive recruiters for Cabral.

Cabral visited Arizona State a number of times and their hard work paid off with Cabral, who also visited Boise State, Oregon State, Utah and Washington State.

With a strong senior year, it wouldn't be a surprise for Cabral to move into the Scout 300 and up the rankings, as he's got a lot of upside still while being a pretty good prospect right now.


Antoine Custer - ATH - Concord (Calif.) De La Salle

One of the biggest head-scratchers during the recruiting process was the lack of offers for Custer, who was the leading rusher for the Spartans last year in their CIF State Open Division title season.

Custer can play on both sides of the ball, either at running back or at safety/cornerback, and schools like him for both, but offers were slow to come.

Then in a matter of minutes, his first two offers came in, one for each side of the ball.

Wyoming offered Custer first, offering him as a defensive back and Washington State followed suit a few minutes later, offering him as a running back.

With the first two in, expect more schools to follow suit and recruit and offer the three-star athlete.


Kentrell Love- CB - Corona (Calif.) Centennial

The Huskies are loaded this year and currently have eight players with Div I scholarships. They're especially strong in the secondary and corner Kentrell Love saw his offer list expand in a big way this past week.

Love was far from an under the radar type prospect as he was holding four offers already but added three more this week, all out of the Pac 12. Arizona State, Oregon State and Washington all jumped on board and don't be surprised to see Arizona throw their hat in the ring very shortly as well.

When evaluating his film, the question with Love isn't why are schools offering but what took so long. He has a long, athletic frame, looks all of 6-2, runs well, is a very physical player and shows the versatility to stay at corner in college or move to safety if he continues to grow.

Nebraska and Oregon State were the early leaders but ASU jumped up to the front of the pack following their offer and the Sun Devil program has had a lot of success recruiting Centennial over the years. As more college come by the school this spring, look for Love's offer list to hit double digits by the end of the month.


Jermani Brown - DB - Calabasas (Calif.) - 2017

Calabasas is loaded with underclassmen, with a four-star receiver in Keyshawn Johnson and quarterback Tristan Gebbia, who has a handful of offers too.

But this was a big week for Brown, who's closing in on double-digit offers.

Utah and Wisconsin, two schools that have produced great defenses the last few years, both offered Brown early in the week.

Brown now has offers from Arizona State, Boise State, Colorado State, Idaho, Michigan State, Syracuse, Utah and Wisconsin and plenty more schools are expected to drop in before the end of the evaluation period.

Both the local schools, UCLA and USC, have already been by this spring to check on Brown.


Sean McGrew - RB - Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco

McGrew is one of three Braves players who plan to make their announcements at a school ceremony next week. The talented running back has three schools on his short list and has visited all three this spring.

McGrew will decide from among Arizona State, UCLA and Washington with most feeling the Bruins and Huskies having the best shot. UCLA was McGrew's first offer and were a huge early leader. In fact, there was some belief that the running back could commit to the Bruins last summer.

He decided to hold off and this past winter, McGrew surprised some people when he said UCLA had slid down his list and added he hadn't been hearing as much from the school. Washington and ASU then moved up the list and he had very good trips to both schools.

McGrew said he loves the offense at ASU and said it fits him better than any other program. With Washington, McGrew said he loves the coaching staff and especially how he's being personally recruited by Chris Petersen. UCLA is the hometown school for McGrew and he's very close with current QB Josh Rosen.
