SANTA FE SPRINGS, Calif. - Anyone who believes Trent Irwin is now a mortal lock to Arizona State because teammate and friend Brady White committed to the Sun Devils might be fooling themselves>
The Sun Devils are in fantastic position with the four-star receiver from Newhall (Calif.) Hart and probably got a significant boost after White committed to ASU on Friday, but Irwin is still planning to consider others>
California and Stanford remain high on the list for Irwin, who had another strong showing at the B2G Elite 7v7 Tournament on Saturday, and he's still open to other programs>
A source said Irwin, rated as the eighth-best receiver in the 2015 class by Rivals.com, would probably prefer staying closer to home - somewhere within driving distance of home and that puts Arizona State, Cal and Stanford definitely in the hunt>
USC and UCLA still have not offered but if either program did it would be under serious consideration. Irwin has proven time and again to be nearly unstoppable and not only on the 7on7 circuit. In his junior season, he finished with 76 catches for nearly 1,500 yards and 19 touchdowns>
More looks for Costello
K.J. Costello is one of the top 2016 quarterbacks and he already has four offers. Surprisingly, two of them from the state of Florida with Miami and Florida State already on board>
Florida's coaching staff has taken notice to this and the Gators have become more involved with the Rancho Santa Margarita (Calif.) Santa Margarita Catholic standout>
Costello, the quarterback MVP of RCS Northern California, said he has had communication with new offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Kurt Roper, and even though it's still preliminary, Costello said things have been positive>
Cal and Tennessee have also offered and Costello has been talking a lot more with Alabama. Michigan seems to have Costello's attention as well and he said trips to Tuscaloosa and Ann Arbor could certainly happen before his junior season>
St. Browns playing together?
Equanimeous St. Brown is a four-star receiver with tons of offers. Stanford and USC look pretty strong in his recruitment at this point, but the Anaheim (Calif.) Servite play-maker plans to take a Midwest swing this summer with stops at Notre Dame, Northwestern and Illinois>
This is noteworthy because his brother, Osiris, is a 2017 prospect at Servite who just landed his first offer from Illinois. Osiris St. Brown said it was a surprise but also exciting to land a Big Ten offer and he's planning to go on the visit this summer>
Osiris St. Brown said he definitely wants to play with his brother in college although it's still early. That could be a factor, though, as both St. Brown Bros. consider which schools will fit best>
Four-star high on Oregon State
Lavan Alston wore an Oregon State hat during Saturday's tournament, fresh off his trip to Corvallis, and he said the Beavers definitely look good in his recruitment>
The Ventura (Calif.) St. Bonaventure four-star receiver cooled on commitment talk and said one reason why he wore the hat is because it matched the rest of his B2G outfit. Other than a fashion statement, it was a message that the Beavers are definitely in a strong position>
On his recent visit, the Oregon State coaches compared Alston's game to that of superstar receiver Brandin Cooks and the St. Bonaventure recruit was heartened by that kind of talk>
USC, Oregon and others are staying involved but it's safe to say Oregon State has an edge>
Teammates taking it slow
Tyler Vaughns and Trevon Sidney are 2016 teammates at La Puente (Calif.) Bishop Amat and that's not their only similarity. It sounds like both are going to be exceedingly patient when it comes to the recruiting process>
Vaughns recently just landed an offer from UCLA after having USC and Colorado State offer. He said after talking with assistant coach Demetrice Martin it was made clear he had an offer from the Bruins but they were just checking to make sure he was all right academically>
The standout receiver is very green when it comes to the recruiting process. He's never even been to a game at USC or UCLA but plans to attend many this upcoming season. That could give him aid in figuring out which program fits best>
Sidney, who had a fantastic showing at the B2G tournament, has offers from Miami, USC and UCLA but is still in the early stages as well. Tennessee and Utah have gotten more involved, but Sidney said there are no favorites and he's not even thinking about naming any soon>
