De La Salle football star Devin Asiasi lists his top five colleges

De La Salle High School’s Devin Asiasi tweeted his top five college choices last night. In no specific order, he listed Alabama, Michigan, USC, UCLA and Washington.

Asiasi is listed as the No. 15 senior football player in the nation, regardless of position, in the ESPN 300, and the No. 2 senior tight end in the nation. The 6-foot-5, 270-pound Asiasi is also listed as the No. 2 California senior in the nation, regardless of position, in the ESPN ranking. He had 17 catches for 311 yards (an 18.3 yards per catch average) with five touchdowns last season.

According to espn.go.com, Asiasi is scheduled to visit Washington on Friday, Michigan on Jan. 22 and USC on Jan. 29. He visited UCLA in December.


East Bay high school girls soccer rankings

Here are the East Bay high school girls soccer rankings with just over a month until the North Coast Section playoff seeding meeting. Records are through Saturday.

Carondelet is the clear No. 1 with an unblemished record, wins over four ranked teams and a goal differential of 43-7. The Cougars host No. 3 Monte Vista on Thursday in an East Bay Athletic League showdown that we will be covering. Check contracostatimes.com/high-school-sports for that recap.

But beside Carondelet and No. 2 San Ramon Valley, the EBAL is a mess, with a carousel of losses among the teams. The other leagues, though are a bit less complicated. The best example is defending North Coast Section Division 1 champion Liberty, a front-runner in the Bay Valley Athletic League after splitting four games at the prestigious National Elite Prep Showcase in Texas.

1. Carondelet (11-0)

2. San Ramon Valley (8-1-1)

3. Monte Vista (7-1-2)

4. Foothill (8-4)

5. California (6-2-2)

6. Liberty (5-4)

7. Las Lomas (10-0-1)

8. Acalanes (4-0-2)

9. Dougherty Valley (6-3-1)

10. Alhambra (7-1-1)

11. Piedmont (6-1-1)

12. Saint Mary’s (6-1)

13. Clayton Valley Charter (6-3-2)

14. Pinole Valley (6-1-1)

15. Bishop O’Dowd (4-3-1)
