Third Tier of Prospects 21-30

Here are our third "tier" of players ranked from 21-30.

This is where you'll find a lot of offensive prospects - which includes several QB's that we are going to follow very closely in 2010.

Our Second Ten....

Here is our second Top-10 (call it our second tier on our board) from 11-20.

As you look at our second tier, take note of the fact that we have three offensive lineman that we really like. It's kinda of unheard of to have this many lineman that we like early that are highly rated.

Tonight, we'll post our third tier of players..

Updated Top-10 For Class of 2011

Here is our first top-10 list of college prospects for the class of 2011. Our "second 10" from 11-20 will be up tomorrow.

The two prospects that I think will blow up during the early evaluation period are Kelsey Young of Norco and Taj Teague of Pomona. Young is from a great stable of running backs at Norco and Teague looks the part of film and on paper.

We always have a kid that is a nominally with us and this year that kid is Wilson of Corona. I've said that he is this year's version of George Uko. Takes plays off, but when the light flips on, he can be a great player. He does have an offer from Colorado following their summer camp last summer, but I will be very interested to see how it goes.

Derrick Brown - Could the Wildcat be in his future?

As we begin the 2011 recruiting cycle, I've been asked more than a few times about Vista Murrieta quarterback Derrick Brown.

Well, after simmering about this for the past couple of weeks, I have come to the conclusion about this kid that he is only fit for one offense... the Wildcat.

We watched nine games on this prospect last season, and there are some compelling evidence to think he can make it to the next level. Among those factors are:

1) Size
2) Toughness

But, when it comes to the position of quarterback, you need more than that. You need to throw the ball really well and be consistent with it. With Brown, you don't get that. He misses receivers in the short to intermediate zone consistently and his ball seems to be going all over the place. Plus, we question whether he can throw the deep ball with any accuracy.

But, he is really tough to tackle, can get the tough yards and manages a great game. But, to be successful at the next level, you need to really good at the HS and he is clearly not there yet.

So will a college spend a scholarship on a kid that is a "Wildcat" offensive QB. Time will tell. But, he is one heck of a punter!
