Rising Stars/ Unknowns (By Position):
Austin Decoud – Redlands East Valley HS (6'3" 205) freshman: Decoud first appeared in January of 2008 at the NFF San Bernardino County Offensive Skills Clinic. Strong Arm, good mechanics, and already standing 6'0" tall as an 8th Grader, the young Decoud has grown three inches in the past year. We don't know the timetable for Decoud in the REV QB Depth Chart, but if history repeats itself we may see Decoud follow in the footsteps of Tyler Shreve at REV starting in 2010.
Mitch Glassman – Chaparral HS (6'4" 215) senior: Not sure why this kid has not attracted the interest of colleges, at least from what information we currently have. Glassman lead the Pumas to the brink of a state championship appearance in 2008 – if they had beaten Centennial there was a fairly good chance they would have played De La Salle. Glassman threw for 1,774 yards and 17 TD's in 2008.
Nate Romine – Upland HS (5'10 155) freshman: Romine just turned 14. His dad and older brother are 6'2, so he is still growing. He has a Tate Forcier frame, now at Michigan. Several coaches in the region are saying he is already ahead of where Richard Brehaut was at this stage in his development. Expect this kid to be a national prospect in the coming years. Following in the footsteps of Josh Nunes.
Harrison Stewart – Yucaipa HS (6'4" 190) senior: Stewart has come on late as a recruit of interest in the region. Excelled at the Debartolo Football Festival in Vegas in March, and his stock has gone up in the aftermath. Showed arm strength by winning best long toss in QB competition, and 2nd place in the pass accuracy at this competition. Showed versatility and mobility at NFF Combine,
Ryan Verdugo – Chino Hills HS (6'0" 185) senior: Verdugo lead the Huskies to (10-2) record in 2008, when he passed for over 1,300 yards, with 16 TD passes. Verdugo impressed in the Live-Action – has good mechanics, head smart. Serious consideration should be given to Verdugo as a Division I-AA or Division II prospect, DI mid-major possibilities may even be in the mix.
