Dougherty Valley’s Trey Hoskins commits to Weber State

Dougherty Valley High senior wide receiver/defensive back Trey Hoskins has orally committed to Weber State, he announced on Twitter on Sunday.

“The next 4 years I’m going to be a wildcat lol going from Dvhs wildcats to Weber wildcat”, Hoskins tweeted.

The 6-foot-3, 165-pound Hoskins was selected as a first-team all-Diablo Foothill Athletic League defensive back this past fall. In 10 games last season, he had 31 total tackles and two interceptions. Offensively, he caught 43 passes for 574 yards and eight touchdowns.

Hoskins committed to Hawaii in September, according to espn.go.com. In his tweet Sunday, Hoskins wrote “This has been a long process and I guess my other school wasn’t meant to be.”


Jim Harbaugh makes recruiting swing through East Bay

The meeting included (from left) Wolverine defensive line coach Greg Mattison, Michigan tight ends coach Jay Harbaugh, AHS principal Louie Rocha, Harbaugh, AHS offensive coordinator Brett Dudley and AHS head coach John Lucido. In mid-December Harris was visited by the head coaches from Notre Dame and Cal.

Michigan coach and web-celeb Jim Harbaugh hit stops in the East Bay on Tuesday, as evidenced by numerous posts on social media that showed Harbaugh at Antioch and De La Salle high schools.

Harbaugh visited the De La Salle campus today to visit uncommitted prize recruits Devin Asiasi and Boss Tagaloa, De La Salle coach Justin Alumbaugh confirmed to Phil Jensen of Bay Area News Group via text. Both players will also be visiting Michigan this weekend, Alumbaugh confirmed.

Last week, Asiasi, a tight end ranked 44th in the ESPN 300 for the class of 2016, narrowed his list of college choices to five, in no specific order: Alabama, Michigan, USC, UCLA and Washington. Tagaloa is 95th on the ESPN list.

Harbaugh was also at Antioch High today, to try and land junior running back sensation Najee Harris, who made an early oral commitment to Alabama last spring. ESPN ranks Harris seventh in the nation for 2017 recruits. Wherever Harbaugh goes, cameras are put to use. He joined Antioch officials, including principal Louie Rocha, head coach John Lucido and offensive coordinator Brett Dudley for a photo.

Dudley later tweeted about meeting Alabama offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin. And the wheels keep turning in the recruiting world.
