One of the nation's elite players is Sylmar's (Calif.) C.J. Gable. The talented running back is having a huge senior season and now has three of his five official visits lined up.
Sylmar has been one of the surprise teams in the Los Angeles city section this year boasting an 8-0 record and Gable is a big reason for the teams' success. The athlete has rushed for 1,383 yards on just 110 carries (12.6 ave.) and scored 16 touchdowns. In addition, Gable has caught 14 passes for 207 yards and three more scores and has four picks from his safety position.
Gable is currently rated the No. 38 player in the country in the Rivals 100 and the nation's No. 6 running back. The athlete said he's being recruited by most schools as an athlete right now.

"Everyone is saying it will be up to me and I really have no preference between running back and defensive back," Gable said. "I like both equally and I just want to play whatever gets me on the field the quickest."
The two way standout has his choice of just about any school in the country but has five schools at the top of his list right now.
"USC and UCLA are my top two and I have visits set with Mississippi, Cal and Arizona," Gable said. "I don't plan on taking an official visit to the two local schools since it's so close. I'll think I'll just visit both unofficially and just walk around the campus and see what's going on.
"My first visit is to Mississippi (Nov 11). We have a Thursday game that week so I'll be able to get out there during the season. Then I have a visit to Cal (Dec. 9) and Arizona (Jan. 20). I was going to set visits to Miami and LSU but the Hurricanes kind of scared me off a little and now I have no idea where my last two visits will or if I'll even take them.
"There are times when I just feel like committing somewhere and ending this thing but I really have no idea where to commit to right now. Some days I feel like taking all my trips and other days I just want to commit somewhere. Right now I'm just looking for a school where I'll fit in well academically and a place where I'll have a chance to step in and play early. All the schools are telling me I'll have that opportunity so I'm just going to have to wait until I feel comfortable with one school over the others and that's when I'll commit."
