Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman safety Bubba Bolden was huge all night for the Gaels in preserving their win streak in a triple overtime win over Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) St. Thomas Aquinas. Bolden blocked a potential game-winning field goal in the second overtime that would have won it for STA. Bolden also had two interceptions of Florida commit Jake Allen. Ohio State has commitments from three of his Gorman teammates and after one of his interceptions, Bolden flashed the O-H-I-O. But plenty of West Coast schools are staying on him, namely USC, where he was once committed, Colorado, Arizona State and UCLA.  Gorman remained No. 1 in the Scout rankings with their win and they largely have Bolden to thank.

Visit of the Week

Fresno (Calif.) Central cornerback Jaylon Johnson is one of three visitors headed to Salt Lake City this weekend to visit Utah, but he's the most high profile visitor. The No. 2 cornerback in the West and No. 5 corner nationally, Johnson will be on the road for the second straight weekend after visiting Nebraska last weekend.  Johnson has another Pac-12 visit scheduled for Arizona State later this month, but the Utes get the first shot at him from the conference this weekend.

Prospect On the Rise

Westlake Village (Calif.) Oaks Christian outside linebacker Michael Owusu is the last of the football-playing Owusu brothers.  While two brothers, Francis and Chris, played at Stanford and one, Brian, played at Harvard, it wasn't until two weeks ago that Owusu got his first offer.  San Diego State was the first to offer and then he landed his first Pac-12 offer, from Washington State. Then on Thursday, he picked up his first SEC offer, from Vanderbilt.  Owusu had six tackles and two for loss last week for Oaks and he's starting to blossom into an intriguing jumbo athlete who will likely play outside linebacker in college but could grow into a defensive end.

Underclassmen of the Week

Lehi (Utah) 2018 quarterback Camm Cooper put up video game numbers in Lehi's 56-23 win over Viewmont. Cooper was 38-for-46 for a season high 478 yards (82% completion percentage) with five touchdown passes and a QB rating of 150.5  The three-star has offers from Oregon State, Kansas and Utah State while UCLA and Utah have been out to watch him play this fall.

Commitment Watch

Santa Ana (Calif.) Mater Dei outside linebacker Faavae Faavae will announce his decision this month.  Faavae said the four schools he's focused on are Arizona State, Colorado, Louisville and Washington State.  He's got visits set with Washington State and Louisville for December and plans to set one up with Colorado too, all which would come after his October 21st announcement.

National recruiting analysts Greg Biggins and Brandon Huffman and Mountain region analyst Blair Angulo compiled this notebook.
