San Bernardino High’s Alexander Mattison made a name for himself rushing for a county-leading 2,017 yards last season as a junior and continued to draw the eyes of college scouts at various offseason football camps.
While the Cardinals’ faithful can expect another solid performance from the running back as he conclude his high school career. It will be up to opposing defenses, especially from
the Mountain Valley League, to stand in his way and try to stop him.
But the elephant in the room is what will be next for Mattison following his senior year.
Mattison has several scholarship offers which include Pac-12 programs, according to head coach Jeff Imbriani, but it is not a guarantee that the running back will play in the conference.
The senior confirmed that Boise State, Washington and Arizona State are at the top of his list.
“Out of my offers right now those are the most communicative and interesting to me,” said Mattison.
He also mentioned Washington State as a program that completes his top four at the moment.
Redlands East Valley junior linebacker Matteo Biscotti has received his first scholarship offer from the University of Nevada Wolfpack, according to head coach Kurt Bruich.
Biscotti was named to the San Bernardino Sun All-Area First Team Defense and named as the Citrus Belt League and All-CIF Inland Division Defensive Player of the Year following a season in which the REV Wildcats won the CIF State Championship.
During the 2014-15 season, Biscotti had 181 total tackles, two sacks and an interception for the Wildcats.
The members of the 2014 CIF State Championship football team at Redlands East Valley High School received it’s rings this weekend.
REV defeated Concord Clayton Valley Charter, 34-33, in the CIF State Bowl Game on Dec. 20 in the StubHub Center.
It was the first state football championship for the Wildcats.
Sophomore running back Stephen Carr will announce his college decision Monday along with other local athletes.
Carr holds offers from USC, Washington, UCLA and Colorado.
San Gorgonio athlete Nate Meadors had a home visit from Notre Dame football coach Brian Kelly.
While the Carter Lions football program is in the offseason, the recruiting process continues for linebacker Lokeni Toailoa.
Toailoa had representatives from both, the San Diego State University Aztecs and the University of Notre Dame Fighting Irish football programs visit him this week.
Both schools are among the 18 colleges to offer Toailoa a scholarship.
He also stated that it is the fifth time the Fighting Irish have taken a visit to speak with him since he received the offer from them.
“We have already established a good relationship,” he said. “It’s huge for any program (to take the time to visit) but having a prestigious program like Notre Dame makes it that much more special.”
While only a junior, Notre Dame has expressed to Toailoa where he would fit within its defense.
“They like me at (middle) linebacker,” he said. “Especially since they have two seniors at the spot now who will be gone soon, but they also believe my versatility could have me at any one of their linebacker positions.
In regards to where his dream school may be at, Toailoa stated that as he grew up, he did have a dream school, but since the recruiting process has taken off and it’s all changed.
“My dream school is (which ever college) offers the best education in what I want to do,” he explained. “…a place I can see myself attending even if I wasn’t playing football.”
While Toailoa believes the process has changed his mind set on certain things, he still believes the process has been a positive experience.
“It’s honestly been a fun experience but I know time is running out,” he said. “I plan on really looking into schools now and narrowing it down soon.”
Right when things appeared to be quiet regarding the recruiting process of San Gorgonio athlete Nate Meadors, he has received his 14th scholarship offer in 2014 to play football for the Oregon Ducks.
The offer from the Ducks was received less than a week removed from a visit to Cal, his second official visit of the year.t
The half of Meadors offers are from Pac-12 football programs, including UCLA and Oregon State.
Meadors is set to take a trip to Oregon in Jan. 16, with his final official visit already scheduled with UCLA on Jan. 23.
“It is amazing to be recognized by the No. 2 team in the country,” Meadors said. “It is surreal and I am just thankful for it all.”
Head coach Kurt Bruich and the Redlands East Valley Wildcats (13-1) were named to the CIF Division II South State Championship Game against the Bakersfield Ridgeview Wolf Pack (12-1).
The game will be held at 7:30 p.m. Dec. 13 on the campus of Citrus Valley High School.
The Wildcats handed Riverside Poly High, it’s first loss of the season to win the 2014 CIF-SS Inland Division Championship on Dec. 5.
The Wolf Pack defeated Dinuba High, 16-14, to win the CIF Central Section Divsion II Championship.
