Alize Jones

Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman five-star Alize Jones tops the West tight end rankings...

1. Alize Jones, 6-5, 220, Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman
Committed to UCLA

The Skinny: The five-star is the top prospect in Nevada and one of the most athletic and well-rounded tight ends to come out of the region in years.



2. Tyler Petite, 6-5, 225, Moraga (Calif.) Campolindo
Committed to Duke

The Skinny: The top tight end in Northern California, Petite is a fantastic pass-catcher who surprised many when he picked Duke, but figures to be an early impact player for the Blue Devils.



3. Kyle Penniston, 6-4, 220, Santa Ana (Calif.) Mater Dei
Committed to Wisconsin

The Skinny: SoCal's top tight end prospect, he follows in the footsteps of Thomas Duarte as another top pass-catching tight end for the Monarchs.



4. Noah Togiai, 6.5, 215, West Valley (Utah) Hunter
Committed to Utah

The Skinny: One of the best two-sport players in the region, Togiai is committed to Utah to play basketball but several schools are trying to convince him to play football in college.



5. Jamie Nunley, 6-4, 212, Murrieta (Calif.) Vista Murrieta
Committed to Arizona

The Skinny: Nunley is one of the better receiving tight ends to come out of the Inland Empire and has taken strides as a blocker as well.


The Next Five:
6. Jacob Breeland, Mission Viejo (Calif.) Trabuco Hills- Committed to Oregon
7. Thomas Hudson, San Jose (Calif.) Archbishop Mitty- Committed to Arizona State
8. Matt Pistone, Yuma (Ariz.) Catholic- Committed to Oregon State
