Rivals.com released its preseason list of the top 100 senior football recruits in California, and 22 of the players hail from the Inland Empire.

Moreno Valley Rancho Verde defensive end Ronald Powell (6-4, 230) was rated the best player in the state. Powell also has been rated the No.3 player in the nation by ESPN.com. Powell is listed as a defensive end, but he could play tight end or linebacker in college.

Chino Don Lugo defensive tackle George Uko (6-4, 280) is rated No.9 on the list, and he is the only other player from the Inland Empire to make the top 10.
