Prospect of the Week
Los Angeles (Calif.) Salesian cornerback Deommodore Lenoir is one of the most dynamic players in the West in the 2017 class. Recently invited to the U.S. Army All-American Bowl, the Oregon commit is one of the most physical lockdown corners in the region. But he's also been a major part of Salesian's offensive fireworks this year. Though Salesian came up short in a 1-point loss to Los Angeles (Calif.) Cathedral, Lenoir contributed all over the place for the Mustangs. He ran for 136 yards on 18 carries and three touchdowns, caught four passes for 85 yards and a touchdown and added two tackles. He also played quarterback when Salesian's starter went down. Lenoir did it with plenty of Pac-12 and Mountain West coaches looking on. Lenoir will visit Oregon this weekend officially but schools like Michigan, UCLA and USC continue to pursue him and North Carolina offered him on Thursday.
Visit of the Week
Phoenix (Ariz.) North Canyon offensive tackle Austin Jackson will take his first official visit this weekend when he heads to Oregon. For now, it's the only official visit that Jackson has locked in, but he could visit USC officially at the end of November when they play Notre Dame and he's been to Arizona State a number of times. Oregon has had success in Arizona, especially on the offensive line, under Steve Greatwood, so they'll get the first shot at the All-American when he visits Eugene.
Prospect On the Rise
Kahuku (Hawaii) defensive end Aliki Vimahi is one of the top defensive ends in the West in this class but he's seen his stock really pick up since the beginning of the season. UCLA offered Vimahi at the start of the season and USC offered him earlier this week, a significant offer for Vimahi since the Trojans were his childhood favorite and he camped with them this summer. In fact, he was named the DL MVP at their Rising Stars Camp in June. Vimahi plans to visit USC and UCLA and also has visits set with Virginia in December plus Georgia Tech and@ Utah in January. And there could be more new offers making their way to him which could cause some trip adjusting.
Underclassmen of the Week
Seattle (Wash.) Garfield 2018 athlete Treshaun Harrison is at a school that is known more for its basketball history than its football history, but he's helping the Bulldogs with their resurgence. Harrison's week was a big one, with his first three offers coming in, from Missouri, Washington State and UCLA. And hometown Washington is keeping a close eye on him. Harrison followed up those offers with an 100/100 game, rushing for 101 yards and racking up 101 yards receiving and scoring three touchdowns in the Bulldogs win over crosstown rival Seattle (Wash.) Rainier Beach.
Fresno (Calif.) Central cornerback Jaylon Johnson will announce his decision on Friday night and USC has long been thought to be the leader for the No. 6 cornerback in the West. Johnson previously visited Nebraska and Utah and cancelled a visit last weekend to Arizona State. He also has a visit scheduled with Oklahoma, a school that has consistently done well in Fresno. But the Trojans are sitting in a good spot for Johnson and could be adding the Army All-American to their commitment list as soon as this evening.
