RCS L.A.: Top underclassmen

Recruiting wrap: Bynum recently visited UCLA and has more than a dozen other programs in pursuit, including Nebraska, Oklahoma and USC.
Performance: It was much of the same for Bynum, who has quickly made his case for a spot near the top of the receiver rankings in his class. Bynum gets off the line of scrimmage in a heartbeat and it typically doesn't take much longer than that for him to put a move on the defender and find open space. He's also very good near the football and just makes big plays.
Stephen Barber (2018)
Honolulu (Hawaii) Punahou
Recruiting wrap: Barber visited Arizona, Arizona State and USC last weekend, and has also garnered early attention from Oregon.
Performance: Barber was not only physically impressive, but he also carried himself like a camp veteran despite his young age and relative inexperience. He backed up the looks with a strong throwing arm and fine touch. He put good spin on the ball to hit receivers in stride and read coverage well. Barber took home the Young Arm award for his showing.
Amon-ra St. Brown (2018)
Anaheim (Calif.) Servite
Recruiting wrap: St. Brown holds early offers from Utah and Washington State.
Performance: The younger three St. Brown brothers might be the most seasoned when it's all said and done. While his brothers Equanimeous (Notre Dame signee) and Osiris (2017) are lankier, Amon-ra has a stockier build and he uses that to his advantage. He's physical near the line of scrimmage and has the slant route down pat.
Taariq Johnson (2017)
Los Angeles Augustus Hawkins
Recruiting wrap: Baylor, Miami, Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio and Washington have offered Johnson already.
Performance: Johnson has been a reliable receiver all spring and that trend continued Sunday. He is a big target with a wide catch radius, and he moves well for his size. A move to tight end might be in store if he keeps growing, but with his flexibility, he would be a natural fit at the position.
Elijah Molden (2017)
West Linn, Ore.
Recruiting wrap: Stanford is the latest offer for Molden, who unofficially visited USC over the weekend.
Performance: After a fractured skull kept him on the sidelines for a few weeks, Molden was back and didn't look at all hesitant. He stays low through coverage and that allows him to keep receivers in front of him. To top it off, he's very smart - in one drill, Molden earned praise for doing exactly what the position coach wanted.
Braxton Burmeister (2017)
La Jolla (Calif.) Country Day School
Recruiting wrap: Burmeister is committed to Arizona.
Performance: Burmeister has plenty of experience in the setting and it showed. He looked comfortable in the pocket and stayed patient during one-on-one drills, hitting receivers when windows opened. The future Wildcat was precise on longer throws and has the ability to be accurate while on the run.
Ryan Kelley (2017)
Chandler (Ariz.) Basha
Recruiting wrap: Kelley added offers from UCLA and North Carolina last week, and also has Arizona State on his list early.
Performance: Kelley showed off the strong arm that made him one of the underclassmen standouts at the inaugural Rivals Quarterback Challenge Presented by Under Armour on the same field two months ago. The three-star prospect demonstrated good footwork and put throws where only his receivers could get them.
Chuck Filiaga (2017)
Murrieta (Calif.) Vista Murrieta
Recruiting wrap: Filiaga holds early offers from Ole Miss, San Diego State and Washington State.
Performance: The big lineman stood out among a small group of defenders thanks to a good mix of pass-rushing moves. Filiaga got pass blockers with both power and finesse, and that arsenal only figures to expand.
Zachariah Holifield (2018)
Los Angeles Augustus Hawkins
Recruiting wrap: Holifield is new to the recruiting process.
Performance: Holifield was fluid in his movements in linebacker drills and then again matching up against running backs. He deflected a couple passes in coverage and, when he got physical near the line of scrimmage, didn't allow routes to develop.
Aashari Crosswell (2018)
Los Angeles Augustus Hawkins
Recruiting wrap: Crosswell holds an early offer from UNLV.
Performance: Crosswell ran good routes and was a tough cover for linebackers all afternoon. He used his quickness to gain separation and was particularly sharp on wheel routes near the sideline where he could go up and get the ball.
Matt Corral (2018)
Westlake Village (Calif.) Oaks Christian
Recruiting wrap: UCLA has shown early interest in the 6-foot-2, 185-pound prospect.
Performance: From a mechanics standpoint, Corral is already in a good place and that allows him to stay consistent with his motion. He showed great timing in throwing drills and was accurate during one-on-one battles.
Max Williams (2019)
Gardena (Calif.) Serra
Recruiting wrap: Williams is new to the recruiting process.
Performance: Hailed as the next big thing out of the Southern California-based powerhouse, Williams got an early look at the camp scene and didn't shy away from competition. He showed plenty of promising glimpses in individual drills and also won a few battles against receivers at the end.
Charles Watson (2017)
Wahiawa (Hawaii) Leilehua
Recruiting wrap: Watson is new to the recruiting process.
Performance: A defensive back with good reach and length, Watson traveled quite the distance to show off his skills. He knocked away a few passes from the grasp of receivers and closed well on the football. Watson should definitely be a defensive back to monitor in next year's class.
Michael Johnson Jr. (2019)
Sunnyvale (Calif.) Kings Academy
Recruiting wrap: Johnson is new to the recruiting process.
Performance: As the son of a quarterbacks coach and former offensive coordinator, Johnson is advanced from a mental and mechanical standpoint, and that understanding is evident when he has the ball in his hands. Johnson makes good decisions and shows the capability to make throws of all lengths.
Matthew McDonald (2018)
Long Beach (Calif.) Poly
Recruiting wrap: McDonald is new to the recruiting process.
Performance: McDonald shows a lot of promise with his ability to set his feet before he throws. He's got a good arm that should only develop, and he put good velocity on intermediate throws to sneak the ball into small openings.
Joshua Talbott (2017)
Long Beach (Calif.) Poly
Recruiting wrap: Talbott is new to the recruiting process.
Performance: Talbott was good in backpedal drills and that translated well when the defensive backs moved over to one-on-one drills to face receivers. He had a couple good reps against some of the better wideouts in the region, keeping pace with the speedster but also defending shorter throws near the sideline well.
