West Preseason Roundtable: 2016 Risers

The West recruiting team talks about which 2016 prospect should pick up where they left off from their strong sophomore seasons...

In our fourth installment of the West Preseason Roundtable, we asked our analysts to name the the one 2016 prospect poised to really emerge this year. In today's final installment, our analysts name the one 2016 prospect that made a lot of noise as a sophomore, but didn’t get a lot of recruiting attention yet based on their offseason should really breakout this year.

Las Flores (Calif.) Tesoro QB Devon Modster is still waiting for his first scholarship offer but judging by how he performed over the summer, that's long overdue. He was easily among the top signal callers we saw during the 7v7 circuit and has all the tools college coaches covet including size, arm strength, athleticism and leadership.

Sammamish (Wash.) Eastside Catholic quarterback Harley Kirsch is a big strongarmed lefty in the early Scout 300. He helped the Crusaders to the 3A state title game for the second time, where they keep running in to Bellevue. He has an early offer from Wyoming, but this year, with an even more talented Crusader squad, he'll be in a very good position to rack up more offers, and show he's one of the best quarterbacks in the West in the 2016 class.

I have been a big fan of Peoria (Ariz.) Centennial offensive guard Marshal Nathe since his freshman year and am shocked he doesn't hold an offer yet. He has the size standing 6-foot-3, 300 pounds, the strength as he benches 400 pounds and the experience, started every game as a sophomore. CeHS is known for producing quality offensive linemen and I think it is just a matter of time before Nathe gets his first offer.

Honolulu (Hawaii) St. Louis receiver Drew Kobayashi has the size and speed to be a great wideout. The St. Louis playmaker had some impressive moments as a sophomore, but has made major strides this offseason. Kobayashi could emerge as the best athlete in Hawaii this fall, and offers are sure to come.
