More Invites to Cal State Game

NORWALK, CA – The California High School All-Star Game, known as the Cal State Game, held its first Selection Tour Skills and Drills Camp at Cerritos College on Sunday afternoon. Some of the state's top prospects attended with five receiving invites to the game, including Temecula (Calif.) Chaparral quarterback Matt Morin…

Matt Morin is still waiting on his first offer, but it doesn't mean he is not one of the top quarterbacks in the Golden State. After earning MVP honors at the USC Nike Camp earlier this morning, Morin continued his strong April receiving an invite to play in the inaugural Cal State Game.

"It's an honor, I get to play with great players," Morin said Saturday after accepting his invite. "When you play with great players you have an opportunity to get better."

Morin had an early offer from Colorado; however, the new Buffalo coaching staff is not honoring it. But he shouldn't have to wait much longer for his new first offer as three schools called him on Friday – the first day of the spring evaluation period. "USC called me first thing in the morning then Boise State called me when I was in school. And Miami called later," said Morin.

Four other players received invites on Sunday as well. Inglewood (Calif.) wide receiver Derrick Woods and cornerback Davion Shelton, Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco offensive lineman Beau Boyster, and Compton (Calif.) Dominguez accepted their invites at Cerritos College.

"It's a big honor for me to play against all the top guys from California, said Woods.

"I'm so used to playing [Southern California] players; I'm excited to play against kids from Northern California."

Bosco safety C.J. Dozier and Dominguez cornerback Brandon Beaver were also present on Sunday. Both received early invites to the Cal State Game in January.

"I'm really excited about it," added Beaver, who continues to be sideline with right arm cast. "It's going to be the best of the best in California. I've talked to Jordan Payton about it, Darreus Rogers, and my boy Lacy [Westbrook]. We're all really excited about it."

"It makes you feel good about what you've been working for," Dozier said about his early invite to the game. "I'm really excited to go against the North because the South is going to come to play."

Dozier received his early invite as an linebacker, but he is moving to safety this season. Colleges are recruiting at both positions. "It doesn't matter to me as long as I get to hit somebody," he said about playing linebacker or safety in the Cal State Game.
