Four-star is a beast
Four-star defensive tackle Jurrell Casey (6-1, 285, 4.7) from Long Beach (Calif.) Poly is a beast. He definitely gets the baton passed to him as the west coast's best defensive tackle prospect.
While watching Casey earlier in the season it was obvious that he is a load and almost impossible for a high school to block without a lot of help.
Opposing coaches have to scheme and account for Casey on every down. He has been compared to former USC All-American Mike Patterson and UCLA true freshman Brian Price.
On the recruiting trail Casey has offers from USC, Oregon, Arizona, Ole Miss and Nebraska.
