Sorenson keeps focus on team

Rancho Santa Margarita (Calif.) Santa Margarita continues to plow - literally - through the state playoffs as the team is led by an incredibly talented offensive line and 2013 prospect Riley Sorenson is one of three big names out in front.
Sorenson is a 6-foot-5, 320-pound prospect who is making a name for himself already and could be one of the top junior offensive linemen in California.
So far, SMU has offered but he's receiving lots of recruiting attention from Arizona, Boston College, Cal, Michigan, Nebraska, Oregon, Stanford, UCLA, USC and Vanderbilt.
Because his junior season is still going on, Sorenson said recently that recruiting is not his focus yet especially since he has so much time to make a decision.
"I'm just waiting until later to worry about recruiting," Sorenson said. "There really aren't any new schools I'm hearing from at this point in particular."
Two weekends ago in one of the more impressive performances this season, Sorenson and Santa Margarita's other offensive line standouts - four-star USC commit Max Tuerk and 2013 standout Erik Bunte - dominated Long Beach (Calif.) Poly's defensive line in a 49-16 victory.
It was one of Santa Margarita's best performances all season.
"They were really good," Sorenson said of Long Beach Poly. "We were a little bit slow in the first half but in the second half like everybody saw we just kept pounding the ball and it worked out.
"We wanted to do what we do best which is hitting them and getting them off the ball and if we hit them their speed doesn't even matter."
Last weekend, Santa Margarita slipped past powerhouse Mission Viejo, 21-20, and it faces San Clemente - and new five-star offensive tackle Kyle Murphy - this weekend. It should be one of the best games in all of California.
