Mission Viejo (Calif.) appears loaded in the class of 2005 and will likely be ranked among the top 10 high school teams in the country in next year's Student Sports Fab 50 pre-season poll. One player that will draw heavy Div I interest in stud offensive lineman Kevin Bemoll.
Bemoll, 6-5, 295 pounds will be a three year starter for the Diablos and draws raves from Mission offensive line coach Marty Spaulding, regarded as one of the best line coaches in the state.
"He's big, but has very good feet and is mean," Spaulding says. "He's a very coachable kid who loves to play the game and is a joy to be around. He's probably better at the same time as Drew Radovich (USC) who we had here a couple of years ago. He's bigger and stronger and almost as athletic.
Bemoll showed his athletic ability at the SoCal Nike Camp a year ago where he clocked a 4.53 in the shuttle and also did 20 reps on the bench. He dominated in every game we saw Mission play this year and will definitely be one of the top line recruits in the West next year. He was a 1st team All-League, All-County and All-State Underclass selection this past season and will compete for national honors as a senior.
"USC is my top school, that's where I've always wanted to go," Bemoll said. "You could say they're my childhood favorite, I've liked them as long as I can remember and the way they're playing right now, why wouldn't you want to go to USC. I'm hoping to camp with them this summer and I'll also be going to the Nike Camp at San Diego State as well."
Academically, Bemoll is carrying a 3.5 GPA and will take the SAT later in the year.
