    Signing Day update: Villa Park's Evan Battey signs with Colorado

    November 9th, 2016, 1:33 pm by By STEVE FRYER

    Evan Battey can't play at Villa Park this coming season, his senior year. Battey, though, remains one of Orange County's most-prized basketball prospects.

    He signed a letter of intent with Colorado on Wednesday, the first day of the one-week early signing period for basketball and many other sports.

    Battey, a 6-foot-7, 235-pound senior forward, exausted his eight semesters of athletic eligibilty before this school year. He repeated his freshman year at Los Angeles Center for Enriched Studies. He played basketball at LACES during his repeated freshman year and as a sophomore there before transferring to Villa Park before his sophomore year, 2015-16. 

    Although he did not play sports during his first freshman year at LACES, those two semesters still count toward the eight semesters of athletic eligibity each student-athlete has under CIF rules. So, adding the four semesters as a freshman, his two semesters as a sopohomore and his two semesters as a junior, Battey's eight semesters of athletic eligibility have been completed.

    Battey took recruiting trips in September to Colorado, Purdue and Miami of Florida.

    Signing Day news: Martin is USC-bound ... of course

    February 3rd, 2016, 11:40 am by By STEVE FRYER

    Frank Martin II followed USC’s tumultuous season closely.

    An early-season head coaching change and associated issues did not alter Martin’s goal – sign a letter of intent with USC, which Martin did today.

    Martin, a 6-foot-6, 295-pound offensive lineman at Mater Dei, was raised to become a Trojan.

    “It’s everything he’s worked for since he was a little boy,” said his mother, Shalini Martin, at Mater Dei’s letter of intent signing event this morning in Mater Dei’s Meruelo Athletic Center.

    “That was the script,” Frank Martin II said, “go to Mater Dei and then go to USC.”

    Signing Day news: No more football for football player of the year

    February 3rd, 2016, 11:04 am by By STEVE FRYER

    Mater Dei linebacker Jed Smith was the Orange County football defensive player of the year for the 2015 season.

    That likely will be the last football award of any type he will receive.

    Smith’s football days almost certainly are over, today’s national letter of intent signing day proved – Smith signed with Army for wrestling.

    He has been ranked No. 1 in Orange County wrestling at 182 pounds. Smith, 5-foot-9, medaled in the CIF State Meet last year.

    Is he tempted to try out for the football team at West Point?

    February 3rd, 2016, 4:13 pm by By STEVE FRYER

    San Clemente football teammates Cole Fotheringham and Tucker Scott signed with Utah. It was not planned that way, but they are happy it turned out that way.

    “I committed first, and Cole was still debating,” said Scott, a 6-5, 275-pound All-County offensive lineman. “We’ve been playing together since sixth grade so this is great.”

    “I’m excited we’re able to go to the same place,” said Fotheringham, an All-County tight end. “I’m glad it worked out this way.”

    Signing Day news: No place like home, either of them

    February 3rd, 2016, 4:07 pm by By STEVE FRYER

    San Clemente football All-Orange County tight end Cole Fotheringham said he lives in “the best place on Earth.”

    Utah, though, he figures is a fine destination.

    “I have family there and now I’ll be able to visit them all the time,” Fotheringham said. “I’m going to where my roots are. Utah just feels like home.”

    Fotheringham will take his Mormon mission before he plays football at Utah which recruited him as a tight end.

    “I’ll be a tight end when I get there,” he said. “Unless I gain like 50 pounds during my mission and they move me to defensive line.”

    Signing Day news: No second guessing for Harrington

    February 3rd, 2016, 4:00 pm by By STEVE FRYER

    Donte Harrington had changed his mind once.

    He was not about to change it again.

    Harrington, an All-Orange County offensive lineman at San Clemente, signed his letter of intent with Boise State on Wednesday. He had been committed to Army, but switched to Boise State after a visit there two weeks ago.

    “No second thoughts,” Harrington said after signing his letter of intent with Boise State. “For some guys I know it really did come down to the wire for them and they might have some buyers’ remorse.”His father, Don Harrington, said he and wife Christine left the decision to Donte.

    “Initially, we had a lot of input,” Don Harrington said. “But it finally came down to where his heart is. We said we would support his decision, whatever it would be, from Day 1.”

    Signing Day news: Robinson+Stanford=Easy Choice

    February 3rd, 2016, 11:40 am by By STEVE FRYER

    Count Mater Dei linebacker Curtis Robinson among the “glad it’s over with” crowd on letter of intent signing day.

    “It’s good to have it signed, sealed and delivered,” said Robinson, who was named All-Orange County first team.

    Picking Stanford from the field of 22 colleges that offered Robinson scholarships was fairly easy for him.

    “I knew that Stanford provided the best opportunity for me to succeed,” he said. “On and off the field.”

    Robinson, 6-foot-4 and 210 pounds, had played receiver as a Mater Dei underclassman. He played linebacker exclusively in 2015, and expects to play outside linebacker at Stanford. Robinson, who reports to Stanford on June 18, will major in business-finance.
