West Coast prospects hold firm in ESPN 150

11/7/2012

There are very few significant changes for the West region in the most updated version of the ESPN 300.

Perhaps the biggest news came toward the top, where Su'a Cravens (Murrieta, Calif./Vista Murrieta) remains the top safety in the country but jumped into the top 10 at No. 10 overall. He is also now the top-rated four-star prospect in the country.

Five players from the West are among the top 50 prospects in the nation.



USC quarterback commit Max Browne (Sammamish, Wash./Skyline) stays put as the No. 2 pocket passer and No. 18 overall, and USC commit Eddie Vanderdoes (Auburn, Calif./Placer) moves up two spots to No. 33 overall, taking over as the No. 4 defensive tackle.

Max Redfield (Mission Viejo, Calif./Mission Viejo) moves up one spot to No. 36 and safety Priest Willis (Tempe, Ariz./Marcos De Niza) jumps eight spots to No. 50 overall.

California is the best represented state in the West region, with 34 players included in the ESPN 300. No West state had a player drop out of this edition of the list.

Oregon running back commit Thomas Tyner (Aloha, Ore./Aloha) earned the biggest bump in the region as the dynamic back moved 14 spots, up to No. 90 overall.

Opposite Tyner, Washington wide receiver commit Darrell Daniels (Oakley, Calif./Freedom) suffered the biggest drop, as he moved from No. 144 overall to No. 177, still comfortably inside the ESPN 300.
