California high school football has neared an end to the 2021 season, with the playoff matchups narrowing to semifinals and finals across the state.
As usual, the Golden State is loaded with top talent that will be part of big-time NCAA programs for the 2022 season, from perennial USA TODAY Super 25 schools like Mater Dei, St. John Bosco, Servite, and more.
