Passing Down 7on7 Recruiting Notebook

Murrieta (Calif.) Vista Murrieta Sua Cravens had another dominant performance at Sundays Passing Down 7 on 7 SoCal Regional Championship. The bigger news off the field was the safety narrowing his choices to five and will make his decision a month from now.

Su'a Cravens announced a few weeks ago that he'll make his college choice on June 6, the day of his mothers birthday. His school of choice will come from one of five schools.

"I'm down to USC, UCLA, Michigan, Nebraska and Ohio State," Cravens said. "I like both local schools a lot and have already visited both numerous times. My family likes USC a lot but it's going to be my decision.

"With the three schools outside the region, I'm really comfortable with the coaching staffs and they have all recruited me really hard and made me a priority. For me, it's about relationships and I have a great relationship with all those programs."

Cravens said he plans to visit two of the three Midwest/Midlands programs but didn't say which two or when exactly he'll take the visits. At this point in time, barring a major surprise, Cravens looks like a heavy, heavy lean to USC.

Quick Hitters:

*Harbor City (Calif.) Narbonne quarterback Troy Williams was supposed to visit Washington for Junior Day two weeks ago but wasn't able to make it. He said his plan is to head up to Seattle in three weeks for a visit and is also debating whether he can get out to Florida in the summer. The QB plans to make his decision before the school season.

*San Diego (Calif.) Horizon receiver Darren Carrington is now up to seven scholarship offers and named Washington State, Boston College, Colorado, San Diego State, Tulane, Montana and Arizona. He said Oregon, Miami and Michigan would be his three dream schools.

*Charter Oak (Calif.) receiver Bryce Bobo is a major sleeper prospect and a definite Pac 12 level player. He's still waiting for his first offer to roll in but is hearing from Idaho, Arizona State and Colorado. ASU is the current leader followed by San Diego State and Colorado.

*Long Beach Poly (Calif.) linebacker Jayon Brown has an offer from Colorado and is also hearing from Washington State and Utah. Brown is hoping to visit Colorado and Arizona State over the summer and said the Buffs currently lead for him.

*Anaheim (Calif.) Servite sophomore Demetric Woodard has already visited Arizona State, UCLA, USC and San Diego State. He plans to camp with Houston and Auburn and will do a few summer camps as well but is still sorting out those plans. ASU and UCLA are currently at the top of his list.

*San Marcos (Calif.) Mission Hills defensive back Devin Holiday had a great tournament and might have been the most impressive cornerback in the event. Hawaii and Arizona have offered and Boise State, Nebraska, Wisconsin, Cincinnati and UCLA are all showing heavy interest. Holiday will visit Arizona next Friday and plans to camp with UCLA and USC over the summer.

*La Puente (Calif.) Bishop Amat two-way standout Darren Andrews has an offer from Hawaii and is also hearing from Oregon State, ASU, UCLA and Arizona. Andrews said Oregon State is coming by the school and he's hopeful the Beavs will offer soon as well.

*Rancho Cucamonga (Calif.) Los Osos athlete Victor Bolden dominated the championship game for B2G Scorch catching both touchdowns in the teams 13-0 win. Hawaii has offered Bolden and he said he's also hearing from Oregon, Texas A&M, Boston College, Vanderbilt, Washington State, ASU, Cincinnati and Northwestern. Bolden said he's hearing the Aggies and Cougars could be close to offering.

*Rancho Cucamonga (Calif.) defensive back Tahaan Goodman took in the UCLA Spring Scrimmage on Saturday and said the visit moved the Bruins way up his list. USC is also heavily involved and the safety said he plans to visit LSU, Texas, Oregon, Oregon State, Washington, Florida, Florida State and Miami in the summer. Goodman added that he wants to take his official visits in the fall before making his college choice.

*Newhall (Calif.) Hart freshman receiver Trent Irwin is already one of the state's top receivers and should have a huge sophomore season. He said he received a handwritten letter from UCLA and questionnaires from Washington, Wisconsin, Penn State and Florida State. Irwin said he wants to camp this summer with UCLA and USC and they're trying to make it out to Michigan as well, as that's where his father is from.

*Fontana (Calif.) Summit defensive back Justin Strong had a strong tournament playing opposite Su'a Cravens and made a ton of plays. He played linebacker for Summit but is being recruited by Wyoming, San Jose State, Washington, Washington State, USC, BYU and Oregon for safety, while Boise State likes him at running back. He'll camp at BSU and the Broncos lead USC, Washington and Washington State.

*Menifee (Calif.) Heritage defensive back Darius Allensworth committed early to Arizona but recently landed offers from UCLA and Colorado. Allensworth said he's still committed to UA and said he got a facebook message to call the staff five minutes after word got out that the Bruins offered. Washington, Stanford and USC will be by the school over the next two weeks and the athlete said in August he'll have a final decision and will not entertain any other schools after that point.

*Tustin (Calif.) sophomore linebacker Greg Hoyd has a chance to be a top recruit out of the class of 2014 and is currently hearing from Arizona State and UCLA. Hoyd took a visit to ASU and loved it and said he also attended the Bruins Spring Game. He plans to camp with UCLA, Oregon State and Alabama in the summer and will also visit Mississippi, where his father went to school.

*Tustin (Calif.) defensive back Treshon Broughton is a good looking corner who has to be one of the most under-rated prospects in the state. Broughton is currently hearing from San Jose State and Oregon State and plans to camp at both schools. Utah, UCLA and San Diego State have all visited Tustin and Broughton said he's open right now to any school willing to recruit him.
