There is a good case that Westlake Village (Calif.) Oaks Christian could be the best high school football team in Southern California regardless of division or section. It bears repeating that Oaks Christian could have nine players who will garner a scholarship from a D-I school.
Another player from Oaks Christian to keep your eye is defensive end/offensive lineman Michael Ebbitt (6-5, 245, 4.7). The talented Ebbitt already has two offers on the table.
In nine games as a junior, Ebbitt racked up 36 tackles, four sacks and one fumble recovery. His performance saw him be selected all-CIF as a junior.
Ebbitt gets the job done in the weight room and currently benches 330-pounds and squats 425.
Ebbitt is hearing from schools coast-to-coast and received his first offer in January when Tennessee was the first out of the gate with a bona fide ride when he visited the Knoxville campus for their junior day.
The talented defensive end received his second offer from Arizona. He has been invited to USC's junior day on April 2nd and Alabama's junior day coming up soon.
Ebbitt may not be able to attend Alabama's junior day, but he still take an unofficial visit to Tuscaloosa when time presents itself.
Other schools showing interest are Oregon, Oregon State, Washington, Washington State and Colorado.
"I loved it in Tennessee," Ebbitt said. "The people were really open and warm to me."
"I love the South," Ebbitt said. "The facilities at Tennessee were big and like how 108,000 fans come to see their games."
Just last week Ebbitt took unofficial visits to Arizona and Arizona State.
"Arizona was real nice," Ebbitt said. "The campus was beautiful and I like the climate down there."
"I was able to watch them practice at ASU and I was able to see how they practice," Ebbitt said. "I liked seeing the tempo you have to play at on the next level."
"I'm planning to go to USC's junior day," Ebbitt said. "I like USC because it is close to home, which is nice."
"I'm planning to take unofficial visits to Oregon, Oregon State, Washington and Washington State," Ebbitt said. "I just want to go there and compare them to the other colleges that I've been too."
What does Ebbitt want in a school?
"I'm looking for the place that best fits me in terms of coaches, players and facilities," Ebbitt said. "I'm also looking for the best place to get an education."
