There were several D1 college coaches in attendance at a 7v7 passing tournament at Gardena Serra High last week. Narbonne and Culver City joined host Serra, who was without standouts Adoree' Jackson and Dwight Williams.
The Serra offense was directed by returning starter and Boise State commit Jalen Greene. With receivers like Jordan Lasley and Greg Webb in the mix, Greene will have plenty of weapons at his disposal. The Cavaliers offense is certainly in good hands under Greene's stewardship.
The weather conditions at Veteran's Stadium in Clovis, CA were ideal for day one of the 2013 CIF State Track & Field Championships. Top athletes from throughout California put their abilities to the test in front of a packed house that included several spectators who watched from the grass area beyond the scoreboard.
Dwight Williams is a known player. He’s got all the skills that you want in a linebacker for a program and his offer list is proof of that. He’s worked hard to build up on an impressive list, but now the Gardena Serra (Calif.) athlete is breaking things down a bit.
He talked to us about his recruitment.
Who was his first offer? “My first offer was Colorado.”
Watch this CLA exclusive featuring two recent Utah offers Jordan Lasley (WR/2014) and Brandon Burton (ATH/2016). Lasley and Burton contributed to the success of the Cavs CIF State Championship team and did so alongside Jalen Greene (QB/2014), Blake Walls (LB/2016) and Rasheem Greene (DL/2015).
Leonard Fournette is ranked as the No. 1 recruit in the ESPN Top 150, and for good reason. Fournette has amassed over 5,700 yards rushing over the past three seasons and 81 touchdowns.
He currently holds offers from many of the top BCS programs, including: Alabama, Florida, Notre Dame, Michigan, LSU and others. At 6-1 232 with home run speed, Fournette is already built for the college level.
"They called me and Rasheem (Green) and offered us. It was a quick conversation just saying that I got an offer and go Gators. He (Coach White) said that he likes that I'm aggressive and that I'm a hard-hitter and he'll talk to me more on Monday about it," John Houston told CLA Sports this evening.
It was a busy day for the 2015 LB from Gardena Serra High School. Houston racked up offers from the USC Trojans and Florida Gators today.
Today has been a day to remember for 2015 DL Rasheem Green from Serra HS (CA). Prior to the Los Angeles NFTC, Green wasn't well recognized as a top prospect. That changed shortly after the NFTC when Green picked up his first offer from UCLA.
CLA spoke with Rasheem today and he was beyond excited about the new offers.
"I got the offer from SC first. Coaches Tee Martin and Coach O were at school today. I met Coach O first and they said that they had offered. I was very happy, I was surprised though. I didn't expect today to be this exciting," Green told CLA Sports.
Check out "The Recruit Life Vol. I" from CLA. This episode features 2014 Serra High School recruits Dwight Williams and Glen Ihenacho. Williams and Ihenacho ran into a faithful Washington Huskies fan close to the Staples Center in Downtown Los Angeles.
