Prospect Preview: Week Ten

Cameron Judge

A big game in Ventura County with UCLA recruits headlines Week Ten...

Game of the Week: Westlake Village (Calif.) Oaks Christian vs. Ventura (Calif.) St. Bonaventure
The Marmonte League title will be decided in a game featuring two of the best young quarterbacks in the West, St. Bonaventure sophomore Ricky Town, who UCLA offered two weeks ago, and Oaks Christian junior Brandon Dawkins, who will be at the UCLA-Arizona game on Saturday.  Sprinkled in are a number of other players UCLA is recruiting, including Bruin commit Cameron Judge for Oaks Christian, sophomore receiver Darick Holmes, who UCLA has offered and offensive lineman Reno Rosene, another 2015 prospect.  St. Bonaventure counters with junior tight end Bryce Dixon, who UCLA could be very close to offering.

Orange (Calif.) Lutheran vs. San Juan Capistrano (Calif.) JSerra
In what will be the final prep game for Orange Lutheran offensive lineman John Lopez, a UCLA commit, the Lancers will host JSerra in the Trinity League finale.

West Hills (Calif.) Chaminade vs. Los Angeles (Calif.) Cathedral
UCLA just offered Chaminade running back Terrell Newby last week and he and the Eagles take on Cathedral, which boasts LSU commit Hayden Rettig at quarterback, in a game with Mission League implications.  A win by Chaminade gives them the outright league title, but a Cathedral win could force a three-way tie with Serra.

Upland (Calif.) vs. Etiwanda (Calif.)
UCLA will have Upland four-star defensive end Joe Mathis at its game on Saturday, but on Friday, after he receives his U.S. Army Bowl jersey, they'll try to clinch an outright Baseline League title against Etiwanda, which features Oregon State commit Jordan Villamin.

Los Angeles (Calif.) Crenshaw vs. Los Angeles (Calif.) Manual Arts
The Cougars look to put the stamp on an unbeaten Coliseum League title when they play Manual Arts.  UCLA commit Mossi Johnson and UCLA offeree Dominique Hatfield will leave following the game for an official visit to Utah.

Encinitas (Calif.) La Costa Canyon vs. Torrey Pines (Calif.)
Two of the top prospects in San Diego meet on Friday night in a preview of Saturday's matchup at the Rose Bowl.  UCLA commit Scott Quessenberry leads La Costa Canyon while Arizona commit Jacob Alsadek paces Torrey Pines.

Los Angeles (Calif.) Salesian vs. Lynwood (Calif.) Firebaugh
UCLA commit Jermaine Kelly and targets in 2014 Marquis Ware, Jamardre Cobb and Rodney Carr, won the Santa Fe League title last week and play a non-league game in their final prep before the CIF-SS playoffs begin next week.
