Amador Valley’s Scranton commits

Amador Valley senior linebacker and tight end Spencer Scranton committed to Redlands on Saturday.

Scranton picked Redlands, where he visited earlier this month, over offers from Lewis & Clark and Whittier.

In three games this season, Scranton finished with four tackles, which follows up a junior campaign when he tallied 36 tackles and 6.5 tackles for loss while he and the Dons captured an East Bay Athletic League Valley Division title.

First Division I offers for Bay Area stars

Two Bay Area football standouts received their first Division I offers this week.

Heritage sophomore running back Devon Rivers was offered by New Mexico, coming after an illustrious sophomore season when he ran for 911 yards and 12 touchdowns in the Patriots six-game slate.

Rivers’ 911 rushing yards ranked No. 1 in the North Coast Section, No. 10 in California and No. 1 among all sophomores in the state.

Rivers, whose father played in the NFL and whose older brother is Fresno State’s starting running back, paced Heritage to a 4-2 record and its first winning season since 2017.

Menlo-Atherton junior defensive back and receiver Jeremiah Earby joined the fray as another Bay Area prospect to garner an FBS offer, with his coming from Colorado State.

Earby, a star performer during the showcase scene, built off those impressive showings by intercepting two passes and coming down with the second-most receiving yards for the Bears (244) – only behind fellow junior Jalen Moss, who holds Power Five offers. 

M-A and Earby went a perfect 5-0 this season.

Local offer for Jackson Brown

Cal offered San Ramon Valley junior offensive lineman Jackson Brown.

Brown, whose father was an All-American at the University of Pittsburgh, also has Colorado, Colorado State, San Jose State and UNLV offers.

Iowa Wesleyan offers Will C. Wood lineman

Iowa Wesleyan became the third offer for Will C. Wood senior linebacker and long snapper Josiah Flores.

Flores, whose resume includes a first team all-league nod, also boasts offers from Minnesota Morris and Wisconsin Lutheran.

Flores finished with four interceptions this year, which tied for the second-most in the Sac-Joaquin Section.

First offer for Liberty lineman

Black Hills State is offer No. 1 for Liberty junior offensive and defensive lineman Favor Komolafe.

Komolafe registered two tackles defensively in five games during the spring and was part of an offensive line that paved the way for Liberty averaging 5.7 yards per carry and 201.8 rushing yards per game.
