Former St. Paul players Kurt Scoby, Ricky Bryant and Sebastian Bright will all enroll at Cathedral today.
The three players left St. Paul after the firing of head coach Elijah Asante just six games into the season.
Scoby, a junior running back, is the prized transfer of the group. He starred at Charter Oak last season and was on his way to another productive season at St. Paul before Asante was let go.
Bryant, a junior defensive back, and Bright, a junior C/DT, also left the school after Asante’s dismissal.
A fourth player, senior receiver Alec Dana, left St. Paul at the beginning of this week and enrolled at Rancho Cucamonga.
There’s no word on whether the players will be eligible for action this season. They need only provide a valid residential change and prove the transfer was not athletically motivated to gain eligibility, per CIF-Southern Section rules.
Cathedral is 6-1 overall and 1-1 in the Mission League. As fate would have it, the Phantoms play St. Paul tonight.
There were several rumors swirling about where Scoby would end up after he left St. Paul. According to a source, Bishop Amat was his first choice but the two sides were not able to work out a way to get him enrolled.
Cathedral emerged as a favorite early in the process, but there was also talk of Scoby ending up back at Charter Oak or possibly even Alemany or Monrovia.
