Helmet stickers: Aug. 24


A look at this week's top USC recruit performances:

Steven Mitchell (Mission Hills, Calif./Alemany): Mitchell returned to his hometown and did some serious work. The USC receiver commit hauled in seven passes for 98 yards and two touchdowns, as Alemany rolled to a 45-8 victory at Pasadena.

Jalen Ramsey (Brentwood, Tenn./Brentwood Academy): Ramsey isn't just a shutdown corner for the Brentwood Academy Eagles; he's a go-to receiver for Florida quarterback commit Max Staver. The two hooked up early for an 18-yard touchdown pass, and Ramsey later blocked a punt, as Brentwood beat Nashville (Tenn.) Maplewood, 43-6.

Justin Davis (Stockton, Calif./Lincoln) -- The Trojans running back commit had a 46-yard touchdown run and 111 rushing yards total, but Lincoln, the top-ranked team in the Sac-Joaquin Section, fell to Elk Grove (Calif.), 35-21, at home. All of Davis' yardage came in the first half.

Ty Isaac (Joliet, Ill./Joliet Catholic Academy): Oh, what might have been. The USC running back commit appeared primed for a stellar night but left Joliet Catholic Academy's season opener in the first half with a right shoulder injury and did not return. Isaac had scored on his first touch -- a 43-yard scamper -- and had 67 yards on only seven carries. Joliet lost, 40-34, in a game that was televised nationally by ESPNU. He expects to be sidelined for a "couple weeks."

Toa Lobendahn (Lakewood, Calif./Lakewood): Lakewood senior quarterback Chris Bell, making his first career start, showed no signs of nervousness, passing for 187 yards and two touchdowns. Of course, with the left tackle Lobendahn protecting his blind side, Bell could breathe easy throughout Lakewood's 38-13 win against Cerritos (Calif.) Gahr.
