UCLA Prospect Recap: Week 13

Nov. 29 -- We look at how UCLA prospects did in the playoffs of the high school football season...

***Game of the Week:*** Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco def. Corona (Calif.) Centennial, 49-47

In a rematch of the past two CIF-SS Pac-5 title games, Bosco finally got their revenge on Centennial, outlasting them to move on to the title game, and ending the season of UCLA commit Jaylan Shaw in the process.  Despite 232 yards passing and three touchdowns by 2018 four-star Tanner McKee, 2018 three-star Re-al Mitchell was even better for Bosco, throwing for 287 yards and three touchdowns and rushing for 116 yards and a score.  UCLA safety target Jaiden Woodbey, the No. 1 safety out West in 2018, had 10 tackles and a sack and fellow safety target Stephan Blaylock had four tackles in the win.

Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman def. Las Vegas (Nev.) Arbor View, 56-17

In the final game of UCLA defensive lineman commit Greg Rogers, Arbor View came up short against defending national champion Bishop Gorman in the state semifinals.  Rogers had four tackles, one for loss and 2018 UCLA target Elijah Wade added a pair of tackles and forced a fumble.  For Gorman, 2018 recruits Dorian Thompson-Robinson and Brevin Jordan both had a touchdown catch while 2018 five-star target Palaie Gaoteote had 11 tackles and two for loss in the win. 

Santa Ana (Calif.) Mater Dei def. Rancho Cucamonga (Calif.), 48-21

The Monarchs, the top seed in the CIF-SS D-I playoffs, rolled past the Cougars into the finals.  2019 four-star quarterback J.T. Daniels was 25-for-33 for 288 yards and two touchdowns and 2018 four-star receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown had 102 yards and a pair of touchdowns.  UCLA commit Quentin Lake had three tackles including one for loss in the victory.  

Chatsworth (Calif.) Sierra Canyon def. Covina (Calif.) Charter Oak, 42-19

UCLA commit Kanan Ray and Sierra Canyon rolled Charter Oak to move on to the CIF Finals.  Ray and the Sierra Canyon offensive line paved the way for 226 yards rushing, 220 of them coming from Bobby Cole, who also ran for four touchdowns.

Calabasas (Calif.) def. Corona (Calif.) Roosevelt, 58-21

Calabasas is headed to their second straight CIF title game, thanks to another big night by UCLA targets Darnay Holmes and Bookie-Radley Hiles.
