OCVarsity's Fab 15 football team for 2013


The Register and have made their selections for their Fab 15 Team for 2013 - the top players from the western United States.

Here is the first team:

1. Su'a Cravens

Vista Murrieta (Murrieta)

DB, 6-1, 205, USC

Cravens is regarded as the top recruit in California. The Trojans lost Mission Viejo safety Max Redfield, but they are getting an outstanding safety/future linebacker in Cravens.

2. Max Browne

Skyline (Sammamish, Wash.)

QB, 6-5, 215, USC

Browne is known for making good decisions in the pocket and displaying excellent technique.

3. Eddie Vanderdoes

Placer (Placer)

DT, 6-3, 310, uncommitted

Some school out there is going to be getting a powerful tackle who will be a big help to their defense. He made official visits to USC, UCLA, Notre Dame, Alabama and Washington.

4. Thomas Tyner

Aloha (Beaverton, Ore.)

RB, 6-0, 200, Oregon

Tyner features the kind of breakaway speed the Ducks crave. reports that Tyner has "world-class" speed.

5. Max Redfield

Mission Viejo

DB, 6-2, 195, Notre Dame

The No. 1 recruit from Orange County is a gifted safety who blends speed, power and tremendous athleticism. Redfield also is a strong basketball player.

6. Priest Willis

Marcos De Niza (Tempe, Ariz.)

DB, 6-2, 185, UCLA

Willis could emerge as a physical corner capable of delivering big hits. But with his size, don't be surprised if he moves to safety.

7. Chris Hawkins

Rancho Cucamonga

DB, 5-11, 170, USC

Hawkins gives the Trojans a lock-down cover-corner. reports that Hawkins also has the skills to be a strong returner on special teams.

8. Damore'ea Stringfellow

Rancho Verde (Moreno Valley)

WR 6-2, 205, Washington

Stringfellow is a physical receiver who could create havoc for defensive backs in the Pac-12. cites his hands as one of his strengths.

9. Steven Mitchell

Alemany (Mission Hills)

WR, 5-10, 176, USC

Mitchell, the scouts' consensus top-rated receiver in the West, is a burner with great hands. His best attribute might be his elusiveness, which allows him to create space.

10. Tahaan Goodman

Rancho Cucamonga

DB, 6-2, 185, UCLA

His size, athleticism and polished skill set make him a candidate to play right away at the college level. He might be a bit underrated among a deep class of safeties.

11. Michael Hutchings

De La Salle (Concord)

LB, 6-2, 210, USC

He projects as an outside linebacker who can defend the run and pass equally well. He plays bigger than his size, and has great lateral movement and awareness.

12. Justin Davis

Lincoln (Stockton)

RB, 6-1, 194, USC

He is regarded as one of the nation's top 10 running backs — a well-rounded runner without one defining trait. He is one of seven early enrollees for the Trojans.

13. Cooper Bateman


(Salt Lake City)

QB, 6-3, 190, Alabama

Scouts vary on Bateman's accuracy and mobility but love his arm strength and mechanics. He is a pocket passer who played exclusively out of the shotgun.

14. Marcus Baugh

J.W. North (Riverside)

TE, 6-4, 233, Ohio State

He has the athleticism to play multiple positions at the next level, though his size and speed are prototypical of the modern tight end. He is regarded as a serious downfield threat.

15. Kylie Fitts

East Valley (Redlands)

DE, 6-4, 260, UCLA

He is known for being tough and relentless. He also is adept as a pass rusher and also against the run. He initially committed to USC.
