Prospect of the Week
Calabasas (Calif.) 2018 receiver Nikko Hall may get overshadowed at times by a loaded Coyote roster, but Hall is a big time prospect in his own right. In the Coyotes’ final game of the season, Hall had 262 yards receiving and two touchdowns and also had three interceptions. And Hall did it with a slew of college coaches at the game and the next day, landed offers from the hometown schools, UCLA and USC as well as out of the Big Ten from Nebraska, who has commitments from two of his teammates. Hall will be a national recruit in 2018, keeping the train going in the Valley.
Prospect On the Rise
Harbor City (Calif.) Narbonne linebacker Anthony Pandy had a great senior year, really popping on film and helping the Gauchos win another City Section D-I title. Finally, Pandy is seeing his recruitment take off in the last week, with a number of new offers coming in. Washington State offered him on Thursday and earlier in the week, Arizona gave him his first Pac-12 offer. Pandy also landed offers from Nevada and Fresno State and Boise State could be close.
Underclassmen of the Week
Kapolei (Hawaii) 2019 quarterback Taulia Tagovailoa picked up his second Pac-12 offer this week, from Oregon, the Ducks learning their lesson with the younger Tagovailoa to offer early and get on him much quicker. The younger brother of Alabama commit Tua Tagovailoa, Taulia also has a Pac-12 offer from Utah and offers from the Tide and hometown Hawaii and will be one of the top passers out West in the 2019 class.
Rancho Cucamonga (Calif.) defensive back Thomas Graham is set to make his announcement this Friday at 11:00 (PST). Graham will have six hats on the table; Arizona, Arizona State, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Oregon and UCLA. The schools we feel have the inside track here are the Ducks, Huskers and the Irish. Once former Arizona DB Coach Donte Williams left UA for Nebraska, we gave a pretty solid edge to the Huskers. Saying that, the Ducks are closing fast here and Graham had a great home visit with new head coach Willie Taggart. It’s a tough race to call right now and very close at the moment.
