A wild week for the West's best

Plenty of attention will be paid to the West on signing day, as four of the region's top eight recruits are set to announce their commitments on Wednesday. That number -- which includes the top-ranked uncommitted prospect in Adoree' Jackson (Gardena, Calif./Serra) -- dwarfs that of the top eight prospects in any of the other regions.

But before each makes a huge statement on signing day, all made some noise this week, as this region and the Pac-12 conference sets up for a very interesting day on Feb. 5.

Four-star DT decommits from Texas

Many felt it was only a matter of time for Trey Lealaimatafao (San Antonio/Warren).

No Mack Brown? Not the biggest blow, but a blow nonetheless. No position coach, however? Big problem -- the last straw, even.

With new head coach Charlie Strong set to bring in members of his own staff, defensive tackles coach Bo Davis opted to accept a position coaching defensive linemen at USC. No Davis at Texas next season was enough to force Lealaimatafao, a four-star defensive tackle and U.S. Army All-American, to officially decommit on Tuesday and explore his other options.

DALLAS -- The idea of playing the recruiting game by ear seems to be coming to an end for ESPN 300 defensive back Nick Watkins (Dallas/Bishop Dunne).

Watkins has made it a priority to direct his undivided attention to being a leader for his team. The nation’s ninth-ranked cornerback and the No. 62 player overall is now ready to bring noticeable focus to his recruiting process -- and, ultimately, ending it. While he still hasn’t announced a favorite publicly, Watkins said he and his family have talked about narrowing down official visits -- and as many as nine teams have a shot at landing an official visit during the fall.

While Adoree' Jackson (Gardena, Calif./Serra) makes it look easy every time he steps on the field, the recruiting process off of it has become anything but.

With 12 schools -- Florida, Florida State, Illinois, LSU, Michigan, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Oregon, Tennessee, UCLA and USC -- remaining in the hunt for the nation's N0. 5 overall player, the next step for Jackson will be choosing which five will receive official visits.

LEANDER, Texas — After a late-June and early-July trip to the West Coast that included elite camp appearances and unofficial visits, Houston Lamar four-star safety John Bonney was back with his teammates recently for the Texas 7-on-7 state championships.

The Redskins performed well, going 3-0 in pool play in day one of Division I action, then making a run in bracket play to the quarterfinals before bowing out to eventual Division I tournament champion, Southlake (Texas) Carroll.

Bonney, a 6-foot, 182-pound prospect who has 32 offers, was glad to be back with his team. Now his focus is shifting to the start of fall practice in August and a potential decision on his college future.

Calhoun (El Cerrito, Calif./El Cerrito) verbally committed to USC over UCLA.
