With so many athletes in southern California, it is difficult to rank every player that stand out. Of course you have your top tier, power 5 FBS recruits, but there are also some unranked gems that will go toe-to-toe with anyone in front of them. Take a look at 5 unranked players that can ball out:

Lando Brown, LB, Junipero Serra HS (C/O 2021)

Brown can play as a stand up OLB or a down DE. As a junior, Brown racked up 19 sacks, establishing himself as a lethal pass rusher. Brown shows the ability to utilize power, finesse, dip, or a spin move to get into the backfield. He reminds me a lot of a young Dwight Freeney. He has solid short area quickness and takes a good track toward ball carriers. He shows quick, athletic hands and does a great job attacking the mesh point on RPO's to blow up plays. He has solid reaction overall, and has shown the ability to take blocks head on, including pass-pro RB's, and run through opponents to make plays. Good physicality with a solid striking ability, making him a legit tone setter. Brown
