Number of 5-star players: Four
Best of the bunch: California covers such a sprawling space of land across the west coast, so it's no surprise we've become accustomed to top talent emerging in every corner of the giant state. This year, the excitement starts with 5-star running backs Joe Mixon (Oakley, uncommitted) and Royce Freeman (Imperial, Oregon commit).
Jack-of-all-trades athletes Adoree' Jackson (Gardena) and John Smith (Long Beach) are each 5-star prospects who are considering offers from across the country. Stanford was able to land two of the state's top players with commitments from quarterback Keller Chryst (Palo Alto) and defensive end Nifae Lealao (Sacramento).
4-star passers Brad Kaaya (West Hills, Miami commit), K.J. Carta-Samuels (San Jose, Vanderbilt commit), Morgan Mahalak (Greenbrae, Oregon commit), and Jalen Green (Gardena, Boise State commit) should have a chance to shine at the next level.
