Bay Area Football : 2012 Top Recruits

Posted on April 7, 2011 by


Bart Houston 6-foot-4, 200 pounds QB De La Salle: While De La Salle is known for their veer offense, QB Bart Houston has displayed the deep arm strength to keep defenses guessing as well. This dual threat quarterback has led De La Salle to back to back state championships over the past two seasons. Houston completed 66 percent of his passes for 1,922 yards and 20 touchdowns with four interceptions. This Rivals 250 player has colleges on the west coast on notice.

Zach Kline 6-foot-2, 195 pounds QB San Ramon Valley (Cal): Simple put, Kline is the best looking prospect at the quarterback position in Northern California. While his  junior campaign was unspectacular at 1,978 yards, 10 touchdowns and eight interceptions, Kline was impressive in the All American Camp and has the tools and capabilities to have a great senior season.

Freddie Tagaloa 6-foot-8, 300 OT Salesian: Size can not be taught and Freddie Tagaloa stands at 6-foot-8 300 pounds. His physical demeanor and quick get off is what makes this Salesian prospect so promising to college scouts. Most of the schools in the Pac 12 are looking at this Rivals250 prospect who could be a dominating collegiate player in years to come.

Erich Wilson 6-foot-1, 184 RB Serra: Any time a player runs for 7.9 yards a carry, he is doing something right. Expect Wilson, who had 972 rushing years to go along with 10 touchdowns to increase his numbers this year. Serra lives and dies with its running backs and Wilson will be a big part of that success or failure this coming Fall.

BJ Boyd 5-foot-10, 190 pounds RB Palo Alto: The state champions are looking to repeat and they will need the services of BJ Boyd to do it. While he split time last year and only rushed for 772 yards and seven touchdowns, his 8 yards per carry raised eyebrows. With an offer from Stanford at hand more suitors will follow in the coming months.
