Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco offensive guard Damien Mama, the top-ranked guard nationally by Scout, tweeted a new top eight on Sunday evening.
Alabama, BYU, Florida, Notre Dame, Ohio State, UCLA, USC and Wisconsin made Mama's top eight, which he listed in alphabetical order.
Mama has indicated that he will visit Wisconsin when the Badgers host Northwestern in October and then in November he'll head to Tuscaloosa to visit Alabama when LSU comes to town.QB Dominoes Fall...for 2015
With the majority of the West's top quarterbacks for 2014 already committed, the top passer in the region for 2015 got a very early jump on his own recruitment.
Ventura (Calif.) St. Bonaventure quarterback Ricky Town ended his recruitment before it had a chance to really explode, even with an impressive offer sheet.
Town, who camped with Alabama this summer and received an offer from Nick Saban, committed to the Tide last week, 18 months before he'll sign a letter-of-intent.
"Football wise, it was a perfect fit," Town said. "Alabama runs a pro-style offense and that's what's I'm comfortable doing. It's a timing offense, being under with 3 and 5 step drops and that's how I've always been trained. Football wise, you can't beat Alabama, they have a great program and Coach Saban and Coach Nuss are the best at what they do."
Stanford's Statement Saturday
After having the best class in the Pac-12 in 2012, Stanford had a smaller class based largely on numbers, in 2013.
But their 2014 class has the makings of another elite class and Saturday was a big reason why the Cardinal are showing they're back on the recruiting trail.
Georgia native Kirk Tucker kick-started things on Saturday afternoon when he pledged to the Cardinal.
Then within minutes of each other, two of the top linebackers in the West committed to Stanford.
Portland (Ore.) Jesuit linebacker Joey Alfieri, the top-ranked player in Oregon, committed to the Cardinal over a late push by in-state Oregon.
And just a few minutes later, Santa Ana (Calif.) Foothill linebacker Bobby Okereke chose Stanford over hometown USC.
Humphreys Set to Announce
Portland (Ore.) Central Catholic defensive lineman Connor Humphreys will announce his decision on Saturday.
A week after naming a final five, Humphreys updated his final five this past Saturday and he'll choose from that group.
The three constants have been Arizona State, UCLA and Wisconsin, but Humphreys swapped in Oregon State and USC and swapped out Arizona and Tennessee.
