East Bay high school basketball scores for Friday, Feb. 5

Crunch time as we have just 16 days left in the regular season. All leagues playing except for a portion of the TCAL and BCL, which had some Thursday games. Several league title pictures are contentious, including the MVAL, where tonight Moreau Catholic and star Oscar Frayer (below, in a game with Newark Memorial) will meet James Logan and try to unravel a three-way tie for the league lead those teams share with Newark Memorial.

Moreau Catholic's Oscar Frayer (21) grabs the rebound against Newark Memorial's Kevin Kahriman (35) in the fourth quarter of their high school basketball game in Newark, Calif., on Tuesday, Jan. 26, 2016. Newark Memorial beat Moreau Catholic 73-69. (Anda Chu/Bay Area News Group)

Michigan football coaches comment on De La Salle’s Devin Asiasi

Here are a couple quotes from Michigan football coaches on mgoblue.com regarding De La Salle star Devin Asiasi, who signed with the Wolverines on Wednesday:

Offensive coordinator Tim Drevno said “Talk about an explosive player, Devin is a very explosive guy. We have had a great string of tight ends at Stanford and now here at Michigan and he’s right that at the top.”

Tight ends coach Jay Harbaugh said “As a player, he is tenacious, violent and physically bludgeons his opponents. He also has unusual quickness, ball skills and elusiveness for an athlete of his size.”

Cal-Hi Sports All-State Football First Team includes Najee Harris, three De La Salle players

Cal-Hi Sports announced its all-state first-team football squad today, and the East Bay was heavily represented.

Antioch High’s Najee Harris, who was Cal-Hi Sports’ 2015 Mr. Football as a junior, is one of three running backs named to the squad. Harris, who is also the 2015 East Bay Football Player of the Year, rushed for 2,696 yards and 36 touchdowns in his outstanding season.

De La Salle, the 2015 CIF Open Division state champions, were represented by seniors Boss Tagaloa, Devin Asiasi and Antoine Custer.

Tagaloa, selected as a defensive lineman, had three tackles for a loss in the Open Division state championship game and finished the season with 30 solo tackles and 6.5 sacks.

Asiasi and Custer were selected as multi-purpose players. Asiasi had 17 catches for 311 yards and five touchdowns as a tight end, and 49 total tackles, including four sacks, as a defensive lineman. Custer rushed for 1,340 yards, averaging 9.8 yards per carry, and scored 15 touchdowns as a running back. He also had 37 total tackles and three interceptions with 107 return yards as a defensive back.

Tagaloa and Asiasi will announce their college choices early Wednesday afternoon on ESPN2. Custer announced on Facebook on Jan. 19 that he orally committed to Eastern Washington.

De La Salle’s Devin Asiasi, Boss Tagaloa to announce college decision on ESPN2

De La Salle High School football stars Devin Asiasi and Boss Tagaloa will announce their college choices on ESPN2 on Feb. 3, ESPN announced today.

They will be two of 13 players nationally who will be announcing their college choices on that station that day. Asiasi and Tagaloa are scheduled to announce at approximately noon Pacific Time in the De La Salle High gym.

Asiasi announced via Twitter earlier this month that his top five colleges are, in no specific order, Alabama, Michigan, USC, UCLA and Washington. The 6-foot-5, 270-pound Asiasi is ranked as the No. 3 senior tight end in the country and No. 1 on the West Coast by espn.com. He had 17 catches for 311 yards (an 18.3 yards per catch average) with five touchdowns last season for De La Salle.

Tagaloa’s final five schools, according to ESPN, are Cal, Michigan, USC, UCLA and Washington. Like Asiasi, the 6-3, 295-pound Tagaloa is rated as a four-star player by espn.com, and he is the top-ranked senior defensive tackle on the West Coast and 13th nationally by espn.com. Tagaloa had 6.5 sacks and 30 solo tackles in 12 games for the Spartans.
