Upland's youth movment attracts recruiters

Senior athlete Jeff Farrar and wide receiver Trevor Wright are bringing college coaches to Upland (Calif.) High School this spring. But they're getting some serious help from the underclassmen in keeping those coaches around for the entire practice.

Coaches from Fresno State, Notre Dame, Oregon State, USC and Utah State were at Upland for spring ball practice this past Tuesday and each stayed well into the evening, as it seemed a new young standout made his presence felt during each drill.

In addition to Farrar -- who was put to work by the Upland staff at both defensive back and wide receiver -- as well as Wright, who was forced to miss the practice with a broken scapula, 2015 quarterback Tyler Hilinski is a known product at this point and generating serious interest from big-time programs such as Alabama, Oklahoma and USC. But he isn't the only junior-to-be making noise this spring.
