West: Preseason Defensive Emergers

Mossi Johnson

Scout takes a look at which defensive prospects out West we expect to see their recruitments take off with the start of the high school football season...

There are still a handful of prospects we saw during the spring and summer who've only gotten FCS offers or non-AQ offers, but these are prospects we think, with big senior seasons, can add some FBS and BCS offers.

Here are the prospects on the defensive side of the ball we think are poised for a big fall, and such, we think more offers will come their way.

    DL: Misi Taifane, Sacramento (Calif.) Grant
    DL: Dylan Fischer, Phoenix (Ariz.) Desert Vista
    DL: Nick Aumua, Auburn (Wash.) Riverside
    DL: Cody Moorhead, Renton (Wash.) Hazen
    DL: Langston Ward, Spokane (Wash.) Mead
    LB: Denzel Talifero, Duarte (Calif.)
    LB: Beau Hershberger, Granite Bay (Calif.)
    LB: Kenneth Olugbode, San Jose (Calif.) Bellarmine Prep
    DB: Trevor Osborne, Phoenix (Ariz.) Northwest Christian
    DB: Ryan McKinley, Anthem (Ariz.) Boulder Creek
    DB: Mossi Johnson, Los Angeles (Calif.) Crenshaw
    DB: Anthony Craft, Monrovia (Calif.)
