Scout 100 for 2015
It's been a while since the West has had a class like the 2015 class is shaping
up to be. From elite quarterbacks to playmaking receievrs and tight ends
with a couple of linemen mixed in, the offensive prospects that are in the early
Scout 100 are some of the premier prospects in the country.
that stand 1-2 in the Scout 2015 national rankings also stand 1-2, overall, in
the West for the class.
And it will be an ongoing battle for the top spot between Ventura (Calif.)
St. Bonaventure's Ricky Town, an Alabama commit who's ranked at the top in the
first go-round and Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco's Josh Rosen, who's No. 2.
Southern California football fans almost got a chance to see these two on the
biggest stage last December, with Town's Seraphs and Rosen's Braves seeded 1-2
in the CIF-SS Pac-5 playoffs and on a collision course to play at Angel Stadium
in the finals. While both squads came up short in the semifinals, both Town and
Rosen served noticed they would be around for a couple of years and gave a
preview of what should be an entertaining position battle to watch the next
couple of years.
La Mirada (Calif.) quarterback Kevin Dillman has a slew of offers, largely
based on his potential and upside, but unlike Town and Rosen, he didn't get a
lot of chances as a sophomore to run the Matadores' offense. Still, a
number of schools have offered because of his size and skill-set and he's the
third quarterback from the region in the Scout 100.
Diamond Bar (Calif.) receiver Cordell Broadus is a top-five
receiver in 2015..
Scottsdale (Ariz.) Saguaro receiver Christian Kirk is the top prospect in
Arizona in 2015 and he's been making noise since he was a freshman, when he got
his first few offers and then shined at the Oakland NFTC. A year later, at
the Los Angeles NFTC, Kirk earned WR MVP honors and was one of a handful of 2015
guys invited to The Opening this past summer in Beaverton. Kirk currently
stands at No. 2 nationally at receiver.
Mission Hills (Calif.) Alemany receiver Desean Holmes will be the guy for the
Warriors with the graduation of Steven Mitchell, who was Scout's top receiver in
the West in 2013 and he's the top receiver in the Golden State in this class,
but he'll be pushed by Diamond Bar (Calif.) receiver Cordell Broadus, who has
double-digit offers as well as Buena Park (Calif.) receiver Jaylinn Hawkins, who
rounds out the West's receivers in the Scout 100.
Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman is always a gold mine of talent, but the Gaels
may have their most impressive prospect in their storied history in tight end
Alize Jones, ranked as the top tight end in the 2015 class.
Arizona also boasts the top offensive tackle in the region in Scottsdale
(Ariz.) Chaparral's Keenan Walker, who is the key guy in the trenches for one of
the most talented teams in the state year in and year out.
Lastly, Pocatello (Idaho) Highland offensive guard Tristen Hoge, who's seen
his recruitment blow up this summer, becomes the highest rated prospect ever
from the state of Idaho on Scout, and Hoge, who can play any position on the
offensive line, is ranked as the top offensive guard prospect in the country.
