The California Top 100 is led by the nation's premier safety in Murrieta Vista Murrieta's Su'a Cravens. The USC signee was a U.S. Army All-American and is also the #1-player in the West 150 for 2013. Northern California's top prospect, Auburn (Calif.) Placer defensive tackle Eddie Vanderdoes, comes in at #2 in the state.
In the Arizona Top 50, cornerback Priest Willis out of Tempe Marcos De Niza leads the way. The UCLA verbal is one of three future Bruins in the top ten and one of eight Arizona native's leaving the state.
The Utah Top 40 has an SEC-bound player leading the way in its final rankings as well, Salt Lake City Cottonwood passer Cooper Bateman heading to Alabama to play for the Tide, winners of three of the last four national champions. In fact, the last school to beat the Tide in a bowl game was Utah, who is getting the #2-ranked player in the state, Lowell Lotulelei from South Jordan Bingham, and the younger brother of Utes All-American Star Lotulelei.
The Oregon Top 20 is led by a five-star running back from Beaverton Aloha, Thomas Tyner. He is one of three future Ducks in the top five, followed by West Linn (Ore.) tackle Evan Voeller and Portland (Ore.) Jesuit center Doug Brenner. Brayden Kearsley, the third-ranked player in state from Beaverton Aloha, is headed to BYU.
The Nevada Top 20, as usual, is topped by a prospect from Las Vegas Bishop Gorman, this year being four-star quarterback Anu Solomon. The Arizona verbal is one of seven Gaels in the top 20, after helping them win another state title, his third as the starting quarterback.
The Hawaii Top 15 has one of the premier linebackers in the country, Honolulu Punahou linebacker Isaac Savaiinaea, ranked number one. From the same school as the Heisman Trophy runner up, Punahou leads a group that has four players from Honolulu St. Louis in the top seven, led by offensive lineman Reeve Koehler, a commit to Arkansas.
The Idaho Top 9 has three Boise State verbals in the top five, including the state's top player, Joe Martarano from Fruitland. Stanford will get the #2-ranked player in the state in Nampa Columbia tight end Eric Cotton.
