West: Final Top Five Defensive Tackles
, Notre Dame
Vanderdoes may be the best defensive tackle to come out of
the West in the last decade, and has offers from all over the country.
Followed up a dominant Oregon NFTC performance with an MVP performance at The
Opening. Once he got into pads, it was much the same, an all-state senior
year that he capped with a stellar showing all week at the U.S. Army
Committed to Washington
Was one of the best defensive linemen at the Oakland NFTC
then followed it up with one of the best performances of any defensive lineman
at The Opening. Did the same as a senior, and was also a part of the
offense as a power back. Then he put the capper on his fine season with a
dominant effort all week at the Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl.
Committed to UCLA
Clark is an active and disruptive tackle who looked great at
the UCLA Elite Camp, where he would commit a couple of weeks later. Was
stellar on both sides of the ball and had double-digit sacks, then ended the
year with a great performance at the CalState Game.
Committed to Clemson
One of the most heavily recruited prospects on the
Islands this year, Pagano had offers from all over but chose Clemson in July,
picking the ACC over several other conferences. Pagano was selected to the
U.S. Army All-American Bowl.
South Jordan, Utah
Committed to Utah
The top defensive lineman in Utah, Lotulelei is a good
athlete with good bloodlines- his older brother Star was an All-American with
the Utes this year and a projected Top 5 pick in the NFL Draft. Ute fans
are hoping for the same from his "little" brother, who was selected to the
Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl.
