We will be releasing our NorCal Top players at each position over the next few weeks.  We will be updating these lists as the off-season rolls along.

Here is our Top Class of 2017 Offensive Lineman in Northern California. This list will expand as the off-season moves on with additional film review, recruiting news and camp/combine performances. Please submit any players you would like us to review to battleprepwest@gmail.com. This list consists of players from CCS, NCS, SJS and Northern Sections.

We are starting with players that we project at the Division 1 (FBS) and (FCS) Levels.
