UPDATE:South Hills lineman Siosi Aiono was offered by Utah on Monday. His list now includes Fresno St., New Mexico St., BYU, Hawaii and San Jose St.
Whittier Christian defensive lineman Jeff Worthy has chosen Boise State over Nebraska and UCLA.
Meanwhile, Baldwin Park linebacker Wardell Crutchfield III has received an offer from UTEP.
Aram’s take: Congrats to Worthy. You really can’t go wrong with Boise these days. And Viva Los Mid-Valley Divisiones. Worthy and WC3 are part of what make this division, which is about 95 percent SGV, so fun for us this season.

Aram’s take: I’ve heard two takes from some very in-the-know people about East practice. The first is “the entire defense is D-1” and the second is “Viramontes is zinging it all over”. It’s a very impressive roster. The defense should be hard to penetrate, but West coach Keith Jones is one of the best offensive minds in the Valley. So, if the West can hold up in the trenches and play strong defense (hey, they have former TC coach and current Arcadia asst. Randy Backus helping with the defense), then they’ve got a shot. Should be fun.

Aram’s take: OK, I have some questions. Where are the Muir kids? La Salle? South Pasadena? St. Francis? There are FIVE guys from Roosevelt on the West. And don’t even ask about the East. I’m still waiting on those rosters.
