West mailbag: Texas, Nebraska, USC and more
Rivals.com West recruiting analyst Adam Gorney addresses questions from readers in his weekly mailbag.
Visits are key
Now that Devon Allen has been offered by Texas is it a foregone conclusion he ends up with the Longhorns?
- Marty from Austin, Texas
Devon Allen just told our Rob Cassidy that Stanford remains
his favorite but he's taking a visit to Texas in early October and you
know how that goes.
What are you hearing about Tahaan Goodman? Is he headed to the SEC?
- Tony from Los Angeles
I have now heard from at least three sources that Tahaan Goodman is
leaning heavily to USC and that the four-star safety from Rancho
Cucamonga, Calif., will end up with the Trojans.
No package deal
Will the three Fresno (Calif.) Central East studs go to college together?
- Ted from Fresno, Calif.
My guess at this very moment is no, they will not play together in college but
really it is anyone's guess.
Oklahoma does have a good shot keeping Hatari Byrd in the
class and L.J. Moore is supposed to visit Norman in late October so
that could play a role. Moore is also planning to see Cal and Notre
Dame and possibly some other places before making his decision.
In the mix
Why is Johnny Stanton not a four-star? You're wrong about him.
- Jim from Omaha, Neb.
If Johnny Stanton continues to play like he did in Santa Margarita's
victory against Phoenix Brophy Prep - and there's no reason to think he won't
play that well or even better - then his ranking situation could be rectified
the next time around.
