A look at the games that the Scout Recruiting Team out West will be hitting this weekend...


La Habra (Calif.) vs. Bellflower St. John Bosco at 7:00 p.m.
La Habra will take on a Trinity League member for the third straight week, after losing two heartbreakers in a row, to Servite and Orange Lutheran.  The Highlanders, led by four-star linebacker Aaron Porter, a UCLA commit, will try to slow down a Braves offense that is paced by five-star receiver Bryce Treggs, a Cal commit, three-star cornerback/receiver Dalis Bruce and center Beau Boyster, an Arizona commit, with 2013 running back Davonte Young carrying the load.

Irvine (Calif.) Woodbridge at Fullerton (Calif.) Troy at 7:00 p.m.
Top Prospects: Kyle Kelley (Arizona commit) will be in action for Woodbridge.  (Kennedy)

Kent (Wash.) Kentridge at Puyallup (Wash.) Rogers at Sparks Stadium at 7:00 p.m.
The Chargers have won two in a row and are led by three-star tight end Caleb Smith, an Oregon State commit, and safety Jake Zylstra and they'll take on Rogers. (Huffman)

Avondale Westview vs. Phoenix St. Mary's at Phoenix College at 7:00 p.m.
Key Players- Westview: senior OLB Chuks Amaechi, junior RB Seivion Morris, two star S Jordan Keel(Jewell)

Thursday: La Palma (Calif.) Kennedy vs. Tustin (Calif.) Tustin at Anaheim Western at 7:00 p.m.
For Tustin they have a solid senior RB Tyler Siudzinski, 2013 OL David Maka who is 6'5/350 and 2013 OLB Edward Tandy while Kennedy has 2012 strong safety Eli Pleasant. (Turnure)


Gardena (Calif.) Serra at Harbor City (Calif.) Narbonne at 7:00 p.m.
While Serra lost a lot of talent from the 2010 team, there is an awful lot returning, and I’m looking forward to seeing UCLA commit Raymond Ford, SMU commit Kache Palacio, and camp phenom Thomas Brown at linebacker. Quarterback Troy Williams has generated a lot of buzz for Narbonne as early as his freshman season. We’ll see how much the junior has progressed. (Kennedy, Turnure)

Tucson Ironwood Ridge at Peoria Centennial at 7:00 p.m.
Key Players- Ironwood Ridge: senior RB Mitch Fischer, senior OL C.J. Healy, junior DB Tyler Williams. Centennial: senior DB Zach Hoffpauir (Cal commit), junior RB Jalen Ortiz, junior 4 star DE Marcus Farria, senior LB Brennan Franklin(Jewell)

Chandler (Ariz.) Hamilton at Chandler (Ariz.) at 7:00 p.m.
Top Prospects- Chandler: 3-star WR Javon Williams, 3-star OG Zach Hemmila (Arizona commit), 3-star OLB Richard Winston, 2-star WR Lloyd Mills (San Diego State commit), 2-star DB Paul Perkins, 3-star DE Kisima Jagne.  Top Prospects- Hamilton: 4-star S Reggie Daniels, 3-star WR Kendyl Taylor (Washington commit), 2-star DT's Calvin Thomas and Jaxon Hood, 2-star OLB Nic Hanson, junior OL Patrick Joseph, sophomore OT Casey Tucker, sophomore DE Qualen Cunningham(Lazarev)

Bellevue at Mercer Island at 7:00 p.m.
Bellevue is the top ranked team in the Northwest and the #12 team in’s High School Top 50. They are led by senior QB/CB Tyler Hasty who holds an offer from Colorado. Up front, 2012 guard Jake Eldrenkamp and tackle Michael Kneip are dominant. Eldrenkamp holds offers from Utah and Oregon State. The Wolverines have young talent as well, 2013 LB Sean Constantine has already been offered by Washington and 2014 safety Bishard Baker is one to watch. Mercer Island will lean heavily on senior quarterback Jeff Lindquist, who is committed to Washington and missed last weekend with a shoulder injury. He will try and get the ball to his talented wide outs, Nicky Sinclair and Eric Stefanchik. (Worthen)

Murrieta (Calif.) Vista Murrieta at Encino Crespi at 7:00 p.m.
One of the best non-league games of the year will bring Inland Empire power Vista Murrieta to the San Fernando Valley to take on Crespi.  Four-star defensive end Jeremy Castro, a commit to Washington, will matchup against four-star offensive lineman Jordan Simmons, while safety Su'a Cravens, a Scout 2013 Top 100 prospect will try to stop three-star receiver Chris Harper and running back Mike Davison. (Carden, Stephan)

Gig Harbor (Wash.) Peninsula at Lakewood (Wash.) Lakes at 7:00 p.m.
In a matchup of unbeatens, 4-0 Peninusla, led by running back Danny Welstad, will face their toughest test against a loaded 4-0 Lakes squad.  The Lancers are led up front by five-star offensive tackle Zach Banner and four-star two-way threat Cedric Dozier, but it's more than just Banner and Dozier, as the Lancers also feature a pair of Colorado commits in safety Ma'ne Manaea and defensive tackle Zaheer Webb as well as running back Lavonte Littlejohn.  Keep an eye on 2015 prospect Benning Potoae, who's starting as a freshman as a defensive end.  (Huffman)
