Top 5 2017 Inside Linebackers in the West Pre-Eval Period

Mar. 23 -- Scout takes a look at the top five inside linebackers in the West in the 2017 class before the spring evaluation period...

1. Sampson Niu, San Diego (Calif.) Madison

The top backer in San Diego has nearly 20 offers and more could be coming to the versatile Niu.

2. Ezekiel Noa, La Mesa (Calif.) Helix

Noa was the LB MVP of the Los Angeles Opening Regional and is another stellar backer from San Diego.

3. Joshua Brown, Long Beach (Calif.) Poly

Brown was one of the most productive backers in the Southland but could end up playing with his hand down in college.

4. Anthony Pandy, Harbor City (Calif.) Narbonne

Pandy was one of the younger starters on a nasty Gaucho defense that won the City Section's first ever state bowl game.

5. Lamin Touray, Mission Hills (Calif.) Alemany

Touray has been a tackling machine the past two seasons for Alemany and can play inside or outside at the next level.
