You can see it here and then if you’re still breathing comment either here or there.
I saw it and I’m astonished. I’m sure you might be also.
In summary, here it is:
1. Jamie Canada, South Hills WR/DB
2. Rio Ruiz, Amat QB
3. Chris Solomon, West Covina RB/DB
4. Jalen Moore, Amat RB
5. Jamel Hart, South Hills RB
6. Corey Victoria, Glendora RB
7. Ajee Montes, Amat DB
8. Lonzell Barnett, West Covina DB
t-9. Travis Santiago, Charter Oak QB and Vince Hernandez, South Hills QB
Aram’s take: The list is awful and needs more work and effort. The guy (Chris Solomon) with the offers from Arizona St. and Colorado is ranked No. 3 behind two guys with no offers. Is Rio Ruiz a D-1 QB? Jury is still out, but does it matter? He’s gonna be trying to hit major-league curveballs in two years anyway. Jamie Canada is ranked No. 1 without having played for the past three years. And keep in mind the Guru claims next week is his “sleeper list”. Well, if ever there was a sleeper, it’s Canada. That’s where he belong after not having been seen under the lights in three years. And the last time I spoke with Coach Bogan, he said they were hoping to have Canada for league play. Sorry, but with all these question marks, Canada is THE DEFINITION OF A SLEEPER (right now). CAN I MAKE THAT MORE CLEAR? He may very well be the best player in the area, and hopefully the kid finally gets a little luck and plays and does his thing. Remember, the key is junior season game films. Anyway, the problems run deeper than just Solomon being slighted and the No. 1 guy not having played in three years. The bigger issue is the GLARING OMISSIONS of West Covina DE Justin Meaders, who unlike about 80-90 percent of the guys on this list, ALREADY has a D-1 OFFER from Arizona St. and another one is expected shortly from Washington St. So why is he off the list? Is he a sleeper? And then what about Charter Oak WR Chris Gilchrist, who is going to have plenty of offers when it’s all said done, considering he’s one of PRECIOUS FEW players (if we’re being totally honest) in our area who has the actual SIZE needed to play the position he’s being recruited for. But I think most of you can figure out for yourself why Gilchrist isn’t on the list. And finally, when ranking RBs as college prospects, it generally helps if they weigh more than 200 lbs. Let’s be honest, unless a kid has blazing speed and amazing moves, he isn’t going to be a RB at a major D-1 school if he’s under 200 lbs. (or not 190 at least).
