So this Future Friday idea is good in theory, but it requires both diligence on my part and phone calls back on a recruit or coach’s part. Well, Mater Dei coach Bruce Rollinson delivered today.
Here is Chris Ward, the Monarchs’ behemoth offensive lineman, rated by Scout.com the No. 5 offensive guard in the class of 2010…
After the jump, Chris talks about narrowing his college choices down to two and what it will take to make it one.
I was emailing back and forth with Scout.com West Coast recruiting analyst Brandon Huffman, and here’s what he said…
“The big thing to watch is Josh Shirley, I don’t think he’s committing soon, but I know UCLA is doing EXTREMELY well with him. Same for Chris Ward. Both were early offers (Ward was the first OL UCLA offered in this class from the West).”
UCLA will have its hands full beating out Miami, Notre Dame, Tennessee and the other Pac-10 schools for Shirley’s services, but it may be worth it: Shirley had a fantastic junior season for Kaiser of Fontana, and at 6-3. 255, 4.5 40, could just be another in the line of dominant UCLA linebackers.
