A look at how UCLA's committed prospects for the class of 2007, some of their top targets in this class and some of their top targets in 2008 did in Week Two of the prep football season.


Archbishop Mitty def. Analy, 41-27
Linebacker Steve Sloan (6-3, 228) broke his right hand on the second play of the game, but played the remainder of the contest. Sloan finished with nine tackles. He had a soft-cast put on the hand today and said he had no plans of sitting out any games. On the year, he has 32 tackles on the season and six for loss for the Monarchs, who are 3-0 and ranked 9th in their region. Next up for Mitty is a road contest at Salinas on Friday.

Torrey Pines def. Mira Mesa, 34-21
Tight end Nate Chandler (6-6, 225) had four receptions for 62 yards in the Marauders 34-21 loss to Torrey Pines, dropping them to 1-2. This week, Mira Mesa will host Long Beach (Calif.) Poly in an intriguing inter-sectional game.

St. Augustine def. San Pasqual, 27-13
Quarterback Chris Forcier (6-3, 188) ran for 160 yards on just eight carries (including an 89-yard touchdown run) and threw for 130 yards on 10-of-19 passing (with a 14-yard touchdown pass) before leaving in the third quarter after taking a blow to the head. On the year, Forcier is 25-43 for 327 yards and three touchdowns for the Saints, who are ranked #2 in their division and are 2-0. Cornerback Larry Parker (5-11, 165) had an interception in the win, his second in two weeks, and also made the block that sprung Forcier's run. Next up for St. Augustine is a road contest at Ramona.

Whittier def. Verbum Dei, 23-13
With receiver Reggie Dunn sidelined with a shoulder injury he suffered at Compton last week, the Eagles continue to struggle out of the gates, falling to 0-3 on the season. Defensive end Akeem Ayers (6-3, 220) forced a fumble that he recovered the first play of the game, but left and did not return after suffering a dislocated finger. His status for next week's game against Manual Arts is unknown, though Dunn is expected back.

Clovis (Calif.) West def. Fresno (Calif.) Edison, 16-7
The No. 3 ranked Tigers fell to the 4th ranked Eagles on the road. Cornerback Courtney Viney didn't allow a reception during the game and receiver Pat Dixon had 11 catches for 167 yards. 2008 quarterback prospect Jerry Davis threw for 218 yards in the loss. Edison, 2-1, will visit Clovis (Calif.) Buchanan on Friday.

Dominguez def. Crenshaw, 31-14
The Dons avenged their lone loss of 2005, a dramatic overtime defeat to Crenshaw, by beating the Couagrs on the road. In a matchup of cousins, Dominguez running back Brandon Johnson got the better of Cougars back Raymond Carter, rushing for 103 yards on 17 carries and scoring a pair of touchdowns. Carter scored on a 23-yard score. UCLA's top receiver target in the class of 2008, Kemonte Bateman, had seven receptions for 134 yards and a 40-yard touchdown. Crenshaw, 1-2, will host Roosevelt next week while Dominguez, 3-0, will visit Carson.

San Clemente def. Upland, 21-14
Devin Mahina had four receptions for 53 yards and scored on a six-yard pass but it wasn't enough to hold off the Tritons' fourth-quarter rally.

Santiago def. La Sierra, 37-0
Ryan McCants had 11 carries for 116 yards and a touchdown in the Sharks 37-0 win.

Birmingham def. Valencia, 35-21
Running back Milton Knox, a 2008 prospect, helped the Patriots, who are playing one of the most difficult schedules in SoCal, snap an 0-2 start to the season, rushing for 181 yards on 26 carries and scoring two touchdowns in the win. Next week, Birmingham will get another stiff test when they travel to Notre Dame.

Notre Dame def. Lynwood, 38-7
Following their dramatic win over Canyon last week, the Knights had a breather against Lynwood. Shane Horton, outstanding in last week's victory, moved to quarterback for the Knights in place of Dayne Crist, who had a spinal injury. The Knights will host Birmingham next week.

San Diego (Calif.) Hoover def. Montgomery, 28-13
