Seven IE players chosen SuperPrep All-Americans

SuperPrep Magazine has released its pre-season football recruiting lists, and seven players from the Inland Empire are among the magazine's 300 All-American choices.

Moreno Valley Rancho Verde's Ronald Powell is rated as the No.3 defensive lineman in the nation and the No.2 player overall in the Far West. The 6-foot-4, 250-pound Powell could also be a recruit at tight end or at linebacker.

Chino Don Lugo's George Uko is rated as the No.4 defensive lineman in the nation and the No.3 player overall in the Far West. Uko is a 6-foot-4, 285-pound defensive tackle.

Powell and Uko were among the top 50 players in the nation, according to SuperPrep.

Corona had two players on the All-American list, running back Jordon James and defensive back Demetrius Wright. James (5-10, 190) was rated the nation's No.9 running back and the region's No.8 player overall. Wright (6-1, 195) is rated the nation's No.37 defensive back and the region's No.20 player overall.

Fontana Kaiser's Josh Shirley likely will be on the defensive line this season, but he is rated as the No.16 linebacker in the nation and the Far West's No.12 player overall.

Rancho Cucamonga's Randall Telfer is rated the nation's No.10 tight end and the No.21 player in the Far West. Telfer (6-4, 217) has already committed to USC.

Ontario Colony's Kenneth Scott is rated the nation's No.42 wide receiver and No.34 player in the Far West. Scott (6-2, 190) has committed to Utah.
