SD Defensive End Rankings Part Two

Send feedback, recruiting updates and story suggestions to kevin@sectionsports.net.

1.) Ian Seau, La Costa Canyon

The nephew of future NFL Hall of Famer Junior, Ian Seau shows great promise to be a force against the run and the pass at the next level. For now, he's the top returning defensive end in San Diego, as the three-star athlete was the most disruptive player on a very good defense in 2009. Even more will be expected out of Seau in 2010, and recruiting interest is bound to pick up throughout the season. Seau already has offers from BYU, Colorado, Arizona and Colorado State, with Notre Dame, USC and Cal showing interest.

2.) Sam Meredith, Helix

At 6-foot-5, 235 pounds, Meredith certainly looks the part of a big-time defensive end, and made solid contributions against both the run and the pass last season, earning a selection on the All-Grossmont South League team. Meredith will have to continue to add weight and improve his technique to get the most out of his ability, but colleges have already taken notice. Oregon State is one of the schools that is rumored to be interested.

3.) Treyvon Martin, San Diego

Martin is a player on many college football teams' radar at this point because of his athleticism, but he'll need to prove that he's more than a raw pass rusher if he wants to sign on with a big-time program. Martin has impressive speed off the edge and shows surprisingly good instincts against the run, but must add bulk to his 6-foot-2, 190-pound frame. A move to linebacker at the next level might not be a bad idea.

4.) Marshal Thrasher, Ramona

At 6-foot-4, 220 pounds, Thrasher is well-built to hold up at defensive end. He didn't have the best season statistically compared to some of the other players on this list, but we expect him to blow up in 2010. Thrasher notched 41 tackles and 6 sacks last season, totals he'll be looking to double as a senior. Moving into the Palomar League without schools like Oceanside and Valley Center can only help his chances.

5.) Mical Bailey, La Jolla Country Day

Bailey was a star on both sides of the ball for the Torreys last season, catching 34 passes for 657 yards and 12 touchdowns while being a wrecking force on the defensive side of the football. Bailey recorded 100 tackles last season from his defensive end position, which included a huge 17-tackle performance in a shutout win over Army-Navy. Despite facing double and even triple-teams from opposing blocking schemes, Bailey still racked up 8.5 sacks.
