30. JP Murphy (San Ramon Valley, Senior, Tight End/Defensive End)

Murphy was a two-way star at San Ramon Valley.

This season, Murphy caught 14 passes for 332 yards and three touchdowns, in addition to one interception and one fumble recovery while the Wolves went 4-2. Last season, Murphy finished with a team-high 476 receiving yards, eight touchdowns, four sacks and one interceptions while garnering first team all-league honors at tight end and defensive end.

Murphy signed his letter of intent to play at San Diego State over offers from Arizona State, Florida Atlantic, New Mexico, San Jose State, UC Davis, UNLV, USC and William & Mary.

29. Dorian Hale (De La Salle, Senior, Quarterback)

The Sacramento State signee capped off his high school career with an undefeated record at De La Salle.

Hale threw five touchdowns and ran for six more in the Spartans’ 6-0 season, which was another masterful campaign from the dual-threat lefty quarterback after he tossed for 2,047 yards, 17 touchdowns and just three interceptions, including 588 yards and six scores on the ground as a junior.

His offer list also included Cal Poly, Columbia, Florida Atlantic, Georgetown, Idaho, Lehigh, Montana, Northern Arizona and Valparaiso.

28. Jack Endries (Monte Vista, Junior, Tight End)

Endries answered a strong club football showing with even greater performances in the high school slate.

The 6’5” and 230-pound tight end caught 28 passes for a team-best 476 yards and six touchdowns, with his 476 receiving yards ranking second among all California tight ends this spring – only behind Sonora’s Gabe Milbourn (524).

Army, Colorado State, Dartmouth, Fordham and Fresno State are Endries’ five offers.

27. Gavin Cribb (Monte Vista, Senior, Running Back)

Cribb did it all out of the backfield for the Mustangs this season.

In his final high school campaign, Cribb finished with 562 rushing yards and six touchdowns, alongside 216 receiving yards on a team-high 36 catches while throwing for one score as well. Cribb also led the Mustangs in rushing as a junior in 2019, going for 778 rushing yards and 258 receiving yards in their run to a North Coast Section semifinals appearance.

George Fox and Puget Sound have offered Cribb. 

26. Nick Bandanza (Branham, Senior, Quarterback)

Bandanza put up gaudy numbers once again at Branham.

Bandanza threw for 1,567 yards and 13 touchdowns as a senior, becoming the No. 6 passer in California during the spring and the No. 1 passer in the Central Coast Section. That production came after he had 1,414 passing yards, 22 touchdowns and four interceptions while rushing for 678 yards and seven touchdowns in Branham’s ride to a CCS runner-up finish.

Pacific offered Bandanza in January.
