Nov. 12 -- News, notes and recruiting nuggets from around the Pac-12...

Prospect of the Week

Rancho Cucamonga (Calif.) cornerback Jaylon Redd has been terrific this fall for the unbeaten Cougars.  But he's made as much of an impression on offense as he had on defense.  The four-star Under Armour All-American had 153 yards on 10 carries and two touchdowns in front of a host of Pac-12 coaches.  The Oregon commit also locked down his receiver from his corner spot.

Visit of the Week

With Stanford coming to town, the Oregon Ducks will host a number of official visitors from California, but none may be bigger than Buena Park (Calif.) four-star Elijah Gates.  The Ducks have three excellent corner commitments and have been all over Gates for months, trying to make it a quartet of top-tier cover guys.  The Ducks have been doing very well with Gates since the spring and this will be their best chance to make a final impression with him on campus.

Prospect On the Rise

Kapolei (Hawaii) defensive end Myron Tagovailoa-Amosa has been big this fall for Kapolei and has them going against defending state champions Kahuku (HawaiI) this weekend in the state playoffs.  Recruiting-wise, though, Tagovailoa-Amosa, has seen a Pac-12 uptick in his recruitment.  USC offered in late October and Oregon just offered the three-star, a key offer for him.  He plans to visit Eugene in January and is looking to lock in the rest of his visits.

Underclassmen of the Week

Concord (Calif.) De La Salle defensive tackle Tuli Letuligasenoa is the latest in a long line of top prospects to play for the Spartans but he could end up being one of their best interior linemen.  Last week, against Washington quarterback commit Jake Haener, Letuligasenoa was in the Elite 11 Finalist's face all night, sacking him twice, getting two more hurries and having two additional tackles for loss in the win.  The top-ranked defensive tackle in the West in the 2018 class, the four-star said that Nebraska, UCLA and USC were the offers standing out most to him.

Commitment Watch

The No. 2 defensive tackle in Nevada, Las Vegas (Nev.) Arbor View four-star Greg Rogers will announce his decision next week.  For months, we've felt it was a UCLA-USC battle for him though Arizona StateColorado and Oklahoma all have put their best foot forward. Rogers was supposed to take one more visit, to USC, Thanksgiving weekend and then was going to make his decision in December. But just a couple days after his visit to UCLA, he tweeted he would announce his decision on November 16th and that will be the day four Pac-12 schools and one Big 12 school get the word on the Under Armour All-American.
