My colleague and I have already introduced you to some of the best prospects in the 2014 class from Texas, Florida and Georgia, so it's only natural that we head out west to California for the next stop on our recruiting trip.
Due in large part to its climate and population, California annually exports some of the best high school football talent in the nation. Recruiting the state has become even more competitive in recent years with the rise of programs like Stanford and Oregon, and Jim Mora Jr.'s arrival at UCLA last season.
Early on, the class of 2014 doesn't look like it will do anything to frustrate California's status as a powerbroker on the high school football recruiting landscape. Cali has you covered whether you want a pro-style quarterback like Keller Chryst, or a dual-threat signal caller like Brandon Dawkins.
Moreover, show-stopping athletes like Michiah Quick and Adoree' Jackson make the Golden State's class even more attractive.
Let's get acquainted with 10 of California's best prospects in the 2014 class and speculate on which programs may be taking the early lead to secure a fax from them in February.
