Tom Hauck/ESPNHSSenior quarterback Jihad Vercher is one of a handful of elite Division I prospects on Los Angeles Salesian.LOS ANGELES -- Powerful and promising: The two perfect adjectives to describe the a collection of talent at Los Angeles Salesian.
The headliners now are Class of 2013 cornerback Jermaine Kelly, a UCLA commit, and dual-threat quarterback Jihad Vercher, whose stock has been rising in recent weeks. Kelly had three total touchdowns and Vercher had four Friday night in an easy 74-7 victory against an overmatched San Juan Capistrano (Calif.) Capistrano Valley Christian team.
The next wave for Salesian, though, might be even more impressive. A pair of coveted Class of 2014 recruits, linebacker Jamardre Cobb and defensive end Marquis Ware, each had touchdown runs Friday on top of their stellar defensive play. Class of 2014 cornerback Rodney Carr had an interception and 159 rushing yards.
