FOX Sports West features four games per week streamed live on the internet with
broadcasters and color analysts, and multi-angle cameras. This week Prepzone Live will feature host Kevin Barnett and National
Recruiting Analyst Greg Biggins highlighting the action from each of the four games as well as other
news and notes across the Southland. Here is a look at this week's action on FOX
Sports West's Prepzone.
ThunderRidge (Colo.) (0-0) @ No. 2 Vista Murrieta (0-0)
8/31 7PM PST
ThunderRidge travels to Murrieta to take on Southern Section power No. 2
Vista Murrieta. This represents the first game for each program, and it will be
our first chance to see California's top prospect Su'a Cravens (6'1/205) in
action this year. Cravens does it all for the Broncos and is committed to play
safety or outside linebacker for USC. Also on the Vista Murrieta defense is
cornerback Treshon Broughton (6'0/170) who has offers from Nebraska, New Mexico State, and Oregon State. Quarterback Nick Stevens (6-4/195) grew into a
playmaker for the Broncos last year and has offers from Colorado State and Utah State.
ThunderRidge doesn't have any players FOX Sports Next is tracking yet, but this
high profile matchup with nationally ranked Vista Murrieta can provide an
opportunity for the Grizzlies to get extra exposure on Prepzone.
Prediction: Vista Murrieta rolls the visitors from Colorado.
Mission Hills (0-0) @ No. 3 Mission Viejo (1-0)
8/31 7PM PST
Mission Hills opens its season with a tough test against Mission Viejo who is
coming off an impressive 35-0 victory over Centennial of Bakersfield. If Vista
Murrieta's Su'a Cravens isn't the best two way player in the state, Mission
Viejo's Max Redfield (6'1/185) is. Redfield is also committed to USC and will
line up at safety and receiver for the Diablos. Speedy transfer running back
Alex Suchesk is a junior who will be one to watch in the Class of 2014. Mission
Hills features Arizona commitment Devin Holiday (5'10/170) at cornerback.
Prediction: In a battle of the Missions, it's the Viejo version
that will send the Grizzlies back to the Hills.
Heritage (1-0) @ Rancho Verde (0-1)
8/31 7PM PST
Rancho Verde got a surprise from Elsinore in a 46-42 shootout loss. Heritage
fared much better in a convincing 32-6 win over San Jacinto. The talented Rancho
Verde squad features a pair of Washington commitment in Demorea Stringfellow
(6'3/205), a receiver built like a linebacker, and offensive lineman Poasi Moala
(6'5/265). Stringfellow should get tested by Cal commit Darius Allensworth
(5'11/180) who lines up at corner and receiver for Heritage. Running back Jamal Morrow (5'8/180) also has offers from Washington State and Utah.
Prediction: In what could be the closest game of the night,
Rancho Verde bounces back and eeks out a win.
Loyola (1-0) @ West Covina (1-0)
8/31 7PM PST
Loyola handed West Covina its only loss of the season in 2011, and the Cubs got
off to a good start this year with a 42-27 win over Harvard-Westlake. West
Covina got off to a hot start as well with a 34-0 shutout over Covina. Do
everything athlete Cameron Walker makes an impact for Loyola at running back,
receiver, defensive back and special teams. Walker has scholarship offers from
most of the Pac-12 and beyond. West Covina lost the bulk of its college
prospects to graduation, but this is still a talented Bulldogs squad.
Prediction: Both teams are less talented from a D1 prospect point
of view. Both teams got off to a fast start. This one is a pick 'em, but I'll go
with Loyola if they can eliminate the penalties that plagued them against
