Tedford & Company


  • Jaydon Mickens, WR Dorsey (Los Angeles, CA), KeiVarae Russell, RB Mariner (Everett, WA) both have Washington and Cal in their leader group [1].

    "Notre Dame, Cal and Washington are my favorites. Things could change, but I doubt it; and more than likely I'll be committing to one of those three. I don't have a leader among those three and there are actually things about each of those schools that stand out and make them unique. - Russell"

  • Byron Marshall, RB Valley Christian (San Jose, CA) could have the Bay Area schools Cal & Stanford in the lead. Arizona State could also be in the mix because of Byron's brother Cameron [2].
  • Darius Hamilton, DE Don Bosco Prep (Ramsey, NJ) will take official visits to Oregon, Florida, Cal, and Tennessee this fall.
  • Eddie Goldman, DT Friendship Academy (Washington, DC) is cutting to his final 8 leaders soon. Cal was amongst Goldman's final 15 programs.
  • Zach Banner, OT Lakes (Lakewood, CA) visited USC unofficially.
  • Joshua Garnett, OL Puyallup (Puyallup, WA) is planning to visit UCLA & USC unofficially this week [5].
    The Northwest has two monsters in Puyallup, Wash., standout Joshua Garnett and Lakewood (Wash.) Lakes' Zach Banner. Not only do they dominate on the field but they're close friends and they're considering playing college ball together. They're great off the field, too, standing together for more than 10 minutes at The Opening to do one interview [6].
  • Aziz Shittu, DT, Matt Cochran, C Buhach (Atwater, CA), Shaq Thompson, ATH Grant Union (Sacramento, CA) selected to CIF San Joaquin Section preseason football team [7].
