The Rivals Camp Series presented by Under Armour kicks off on March 9 in Phoenix and March 10 in Los Angeles, and the rosters are filling up with star-studded players from the West.
All events in the Rivals Camp Series are free and invitation-only at the best facilities featuring the best coaches working with the best prospects in the nation.
Those who attend will not only get tremendous exposure from Rivals.com as well Under Armour apparel, but will also get a chance to earn a spot at the Rivals100 Five-Star Challenge in June and potentially enhance their status as a candidate for the Under Armour All-American Game in January.
This is one of the strongest years for talent in recent memory in Arizona, and many of that state's top players have already signed up for the March 9 camp at Chandler Hamilton.
Included on the early list are four-star wide receiver Jalen Brown from Phoenix Mountain Pointe and four-star defensive end Qualen Cunningham from the host school.
Recently, 2015 Newhall (Calif.) Hart wide receiver Trent Irwin, who has a Colorado offer on his list, signed up for the Phoenix camp. So did stud 2015 dual-threat quarterback Bryce Perkins from Chandler, Ariz. He already has Arizona State and UCLA offers.
HOW TO GET INVITED
If you are a prospect in the West Region with FBS offers or likely to receive FBS offers, or the coach or the parent of such a prospect, here's what you do:
The quarterback group will be boosted by some outstanding underclassmen, including Ventura (Calif.) St. Bonaventure's Ricky Town, who has Miami and UCLA offers, and Sandy (Utah) Jordan's Austin Kafentzis, who has BYU, Utah, Utah State and Wisconsin offers. Both are 2015 quarterbacks.
Apple Valley, Calif., offensive lineman Troy Bacon (TCU offer), 2015 standout Tristen Hoge from Pocatello (Idaho) Highland (BYU and Boise State offers) and Newbury Park, Calif., offensive lineman Zach Okun lead a strong line group. Okun, another 2015 standout, has offers from Arizona, Kansas State, UCLA and Washington.
Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., cornerback Ralston Compton, whose offer list could blow up soon, will be in attendance with other top Inland Empire prospects. Osa Masina, a standout 2015 athlete from Salt Lake City (Utah) Brighton, is expected. He already has Michigan, BYU, Utah and Wisconsin on his offer list.
Blakley, who's working out at the Phoenix camp on Saturday, will be at the L.A. camp on Sunday as well. Marysville (Wash.) Marysville-Pilchuck 2015 running back Austin Joyner, who has Washington and Washington State offers, has signed up.
