Cal Football Recruiting

Friday Night Lights: April 1 2021

April 3, 2021

Another week of high school football brought about key performances from many of Cal’s 2022 and 2021 recruits, highlighted by big games from RB Ashton Hayes‍ and ATH Braydon Brus‍.  Spring football has been the name of the game in California, Nevada, and Illinois, the three states where Cal prospects were located in this segment.

In Bishop Alemany’s 21-7 win over Cathedral in Mission Hills, CA, four-star WR Kevin Green‍ caught two touchdowns, including one for 55 yards and another for 12. Last week, the 5-11 165-lb prospect went for 174 receiving yards and one touchdown, and the week before had seven catches for 118 yards. 

Cal currently competes with Oregon, Stanford and USC among others for Green’s commitment.

Tetairoa McMillan‍ finished with six receptions for 103, including 32-yard TD in Servite’s 24-17 loss versus Mater Dei. The 6’3 five-star WR’s play of the day was a gritty touchdown run where he pummeled his way through a DB to get the ball inches across the goal-line.

On the opposite side of the football, four-star LB David Bailey‍ was a force, making eight solo tackles, five tackles for loss, four sacks, and one forced fumble for the Monarchs.. On the offensive side, four-star WR CJ Williams‍ had some sweet grabs to help get the win over the Friars in Anaheim.

Over in Reno, NV three-star RB Ashton Hayes‍ had the best game of his season, carrying the ball 23 times for 223 yards to go along with four touchdowns in the McQueen Lancers’ 59-40 shootout win over the Reno Huskies. On the defensive side, four-star OLB Robby Snelling‍ accumulated eleven tackles (four solo, seven asst) and one and a half tackles for loss.

Hayes was just too fast and shifty for the Huskies, and was put in all different types of packages including four-wide receiver sets, the classic I, and single back sets.

Big OL Danny McGuire‍ lined up at right guard on Saturday in Marist’s 24-21 loss to Mt. Carmel in Chicago, IL. The 6’5 three-star recruit currently holds offers from Oregon, Arizona and ASU.

In De Le Salle’s 42-7 win over Jesuit, four-star Zeke Berry‍ made four tackles and caught one pass for eight yards, lining up at both corner and slot receiver. His counterpart in the secondary, three-star 2021 commit Lu-Magia Hearns‍ ran one kick return for 42 yards, defended one pass, and made one tackle in Concord on Thursday. 

On the other side of the ball, three-star 2021 commit Keleki Latu‍ made four tackles and one sack as a DE and two receptions for 38 yards and one touchdown as a TE. At 6’6 Latu will be bring length to Geep Chryst’s unit.

The high school version of Taysom Hill and more, three-star Braydon Brus‍ lined up at five different positions on Friday in Glendora’s 33-7 win over Colony.  On the night, Brus had 152 yards (three receptions for 89 and ten carries for 63). His lone touchdown was off a wildcat formation on a 10-yard keeper. He also stood out on defense as the Tartans’ anchor at middle-linebacker, racking up one sack, two quarterback hurries, seven tackles, and one tackle for loss.

“I just love playing football, so it doesn’t matter where the coaches ask me to line up,” said Brus after the game. “If they need me to play center, I will get in and start snapping that ball.”
