Breaking Down The Top Five Athletes out West Including Brandon Burton

Jan. 30 -- Greg Biggins breaks down the top five athletes out West, which includes UCLA official visitor Brandon Burton...

A pair of five-star prospects headline our list of the top five athletes out West.

Jack Jones was thought to be more of a receiver last spring but his play at corner has really elevated his stock. Alabama, Texas A&M and USC are his finalists.

Michael Pittman is a guy we loved on defense following his junior season. The USC commit put up video game type numbers at receiver this past fall and will start his career out on offense now.

Brandon Wellington is a tough, physical player who we think will wind up at linebacker at Washington and be an early contributor.

Washington corner commit Byron Murphyis a talented receiver but even better on the defensive side of the ball.

Brandon Burton could play safety or receiver in college but we like his upside highest on defense. ArizonaFlorida StateUCLA and USC Trojans are his final four.
