Recruiting Blog - 6/7

As we continue along in the 2014 recruiting cycle, more and more prospects are receiving offers, one top JUCO prospect recently named his top eight and another star has decided to redshirt this fall in order to return better than ever in 2014...

Mt. San Antonio DL Norman Moi Moi - Moi Moi recently told that he has made the tough decision to turn down offers from UTEP and Oregon State, who wanted him to come in after the 2013 season, so that he can redshirt this fall, work on his strength, speed and quickness, and return in 2014 and be ready to help the Mounties to what he hopes is a championship. Last season, while rotating along the defensive line at Mt. SAC, Moi Moi totaled 24 tackles, eight tackles-for-loss and five sacks.

Fort Scott DT Abu Lamin - Lamin recently announced via twitter that his top eight are as follows (in no particular order), Arizona State, Auburn, Tennessee, Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, Arkansas and Nebraska. He recently set up a trip to South Carolina for later this month (June 21st - 23rd) and he expects to make other visits this summer as his schedule allows.

Blinn OL Donovan Williams - Williams is an absolute beast as a run-blocker and he's big, physical and athletic. He's been receiving interest from Kansas, Kansas State, Missouri and Oklahoma State and you can expect more and more schools to start looking his way this summer.

Contra Costa LB Edward Muldrow III - Muldrow III has offers from Arizona State, West Virginia, Tennessee, Kansas and Utah State and has gotten quite a bit of interest from Washington, USC and Oregon as well as a few others. He's a versatile prospect, able to play inside or outside, and that has gotten the attention of several schools.

College of the Siskiyous LB Alex Henderson - As a freshman in 2012, Henderson was all over the place, totaling 44 tackles, one sack, 4.5 tackles-for-loss and two interceptions from his inside spot. He's got the size, athleticism and instincts to be one of the top linebacker prospects and has seen interest from the likes of LSU, California, UCLA, Michigan State, Oregon, Arizona, Arizona State, UNLV, Oklahoma State, Colorado, Colorado State and Oregon State, but, as of now, he has yet to receive his first offer.

Fort Scott TE Zach Gougler - Gougler is a new name that has started to gain quite a bit of interest from four-year schools. He showed soft hands and good blocking skills this spring and schools like Kansas State, Ohio and Akron have already been showing interest.

Dean LB Jason Sylva - Last season, Sylva didn't play like a freshman, totaling 55 tackles, eight tackles-for-loss and three sacks from his inside spot. He's got an early offer from Connecticut and has made a verbal there, but with interest from schools like Iowa, Iowa State, Miami, Pittsburgh and Rutgers, expect things to take a while before he's ready to sign with a school.

East Mississippi LB Christian Russell - Russell had a huge freshman season last fall, totaling 75 tackles, three tackles-for-loss, two sacks and four fumble recoveries for the Lions. He's big and physical and has been hearing from schools like Southern Miss, Arkansas, Mississippi, Mississippi State, Auburn, Tennessee, Memphis, SMU as well as several others. He will likely wind up with 10-plus offers before the end of the season and has the ability to be a real leader from the middle of a defense.

Fullerton OL Bubba Baldwin - After earning All-Conference and All-State honors as a freshman for the Hornets in 2012, Baldwin has received early interest from New Mexico, New Mexico State, Arizona, California and Colorado. He's a very good run-blocker, able to pull and get out in front as a lead-blocker and he's improved quite a bit as a pass-blocker as well.

Victor Valley ATH/PR/KR Farrell Victor - As a freshman in 2012, Victor totaled 520 yards rushing and also averaged 26 yard per kick return as a freshman in 2012, earning First Team All-Conference and All-State honors as a return man. Returners don't get a lot of early interest from schools, but expect things to pick up for him over the summer and during the season once schools get a look at how electric he is with the ball in his hands.
