When it comes to a high-profile collection of talent at one school on the prep circuit, few on the West Coast, and in the entire country for that matter, can rival the well-known trio of Randal Grimes, Tony Fields and Poutasi Poutasi from Desert Pines (NV). The star power is undeniable.
Accordingly, Blue-Grey Football just recently made a stop on its nationwide Jersey Presentation Tour to acknowledge the prospects in the Class of 2017, of course in advance of the brand’s series of upcoming All-American Bowls held at NFL stadiums with NFL veteran coaching staffs.
“Each one of these young men can go, they all can play, and we’re happy to have them as a part of this year’s games,” said NFL veteran Mark McMillian. “You’ll be seeing them at the collegiate level, and who knows, after that, maybe they’ll play on Sundays like I did back in the day.”
Grimes might be the best of the bunch. The 6-4 and 205-pound USC commit will line up for West vs. East on Dec. 22 at Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium. He is nation’s No. 26 athlete in the 247Sports Composite Rankings, which takes into account evaluations of the major recruiting services.
Joining him in the Lone Star State will be Fields. The 6-3 and 205-pound Arizona commit is the country’s No. 43 athlete in the 247Sports Composite Rankings. Prior to his decision on calling Tucson home in the foreseeable future, he had double-digit scholarship offers.
Poutasi was selected to participate in the All-American Bowl on Jan. 21 at Oakland Raiders’ Coliseum. The 6-4 and 280-pound Louisville commit is the nation’s No. 39 offensive guard in the 247Sports Composite Rankings and will soon be playing for the Cardinals.
Worth mentioning, each individual worked out on the nationwide circuit for the brand’s All-American Combine (Desert Regional). Grimes, in fact, attended the past two years, thus cementing his status as one of the country’s elite, along with teammates Fields and Poutasi.
