Pasadena City College is currently going through a coaching change, but offensive Line/strength coach Mark Kleinpeter has been helping keep the program afloat and helping its numerous college prospects sort out their options.
The highest ranked player on the team is three-star running back Ron Williams, and the 6-foot-1, 220-pounder continues to get solid attention from all over the nation.
"Ron is still being recruited by Washington State, Arizona and now Purdue," Kleinpeter said. "I don't think he's got any visits set up yet, though."

Cornerback receiver Tremane Vaughns has also seen his stock shoot through the roof. The Citrus College transfer that originally committed to Louisiana Monroe out of high school now has official visits set with Marshall on December 9, Missouri on December 16 and is also talking to other schools like Purdue, Minnesota and Arkansas.
"He has interests in all of the schools, but I'd say that Missouri leads right now," the coach said.
Free safety Justin Garrett looks like he's going to visit Washington State on January 13 and Tennessee is also moving in hard after him, according to his coach.
"He will definitely visit Tennessee," Kleinpeter said. "There are other schools that are also talking to Brandon Garrett, Justin's brother. He's a linebacker/defensive end. I imagine whoever offers Brandon will get Justin, too."
Receiver Herbert Martin is already committed to Western Michigan and will trip some time in mid-December. Other schools have started to express interest in Martin and could open him up to other official visits.
Tight end Rubin Resnick is being recruited by Utah and Nevada.
Illinois offensive line commitment Josh Coburn is slated to visit some time here in early December, but other teams like Louisville and East Carolina have really put the pressure on the 6-foot-4, 290-pounder the past few weeks.
"If either of those offers him, I would expect him to de-commit from Illinois and go to one of those two," Kleinpeter said. "He is from North Carolina, so he's looking to get home. Josh's medical redshirt was approved so he will be four years to play three seasons guy, which makes him even more valuable."
Offensive lineman Eric Benoit will visit Nevada in January and Louisiana-Lafayette on December 9. He grayshirted last year and will have four years to play three seasons. Louis West, another highly recruited kid out of high school, is now up to 6-foot-8 and 385 pounds. He will visit Nevada in January.
