Defensively, two more UCLA targets lead the Gaels, four-star safety Bubba Bolden and 2018 four-star linebacker Palei Gaoteote. Across the field is a talented Bosco roster which features the No. 1 safety in 2018, UCLA recruit Jaiden Woodbey, plus more 2018 talent, like quarterback Re-Al Mitchell, who had a 98-yard touchdown run in his first start and may be the fastest quarterback in the Southland.

West Hills (Calif.) Chaminade vs. Valencia (Calif.)

Calabasas (Calif.) vs. Los Angeles (Calif.) West Adams
Calabasas is loaded, featuring UCLA target Darnay Holmes , the No. 1 cornerback in the 2017 class nationally, plus 2018 four-star corner Bookie Radley-Hiles as well as a pair of Nebraska commits in quarterback Tristan Gebbia and receiver Keyshawn Johnson.
