The Northwest and Northern California updated Fall Top247 for 2024

The Northwest and Northern California was well represented in 247Sports’ updated publication of the Top 247 for the Class of 2024.

Six players from Washington, two from Northern California, two from Oregon, and one from Idaho made the updated roster in our Fall Update.

The No. 1 in the region remains the same – Seattle (Wash.) O’Dea running back Jason Brown.

Brown comes in as the No. 30 player in the country and the No. 2 running back nationally.

He is also the highest-rated running back in the western region.

The quarterback from Folsom (California) makes his debut in the Top247. Austin Mackwho is not only in the top 100, but is ranked #1 in Northern California in the class of 2024.

Mack is ranked the 53rd nationally, 8th in California and 7th nationally for quarterbacks.

Yelm (Wash.) linebacker remains in the top 100 Braden Platt, who is ranked 78th overall, the No. 9 linebacker in the country. #3 in the region and #2 in Washington state.

Platt is also one of the top pitchers in the country, with high marks in discus, javelin and shot put, ranked nationally as a pitcher, and he qualified for Oregon’s Junior Nationals in javelin and shot put this summer and plans to do both in college.

He moves ahead of Seattle, Washington O’Dea offensive lineman Isendre Ahfua.

Nicknamed “Papa,” Ahfua checks in as the No. 85 national standings in the Class of 2024 and No. 4 in home offense in the country.

The next prospect in the region is the Federal Way (Washington) athlete. Rahshawn Clarkwho checks in at number 119 nationally in the class of 2024.

Just behind him is Bellevue (Wash.) tight end Hogan Hansen, who is ranked No. 122 in the country and largely helped the Wolverines last fall from his defensive position to a state title but serves a stellar blocker on their Wing-T offense. Hansen has thrived as a pass catcher on the 7v7 circuit and on the occasional pass from the Wolverines offense.

At #124, Burien (Wash.) Highline Two-Way is standout Marquawn McCraney, who is classified as an athlete and can play receiver or safety. Most of his offers are for security, but his heart is with the recipient, so he has to choose between them if further offers come from it.

Another player making his debut in the Top247 is Fairfield (California) Armijo defensive lineman Jericho Johnson.

The tall, athletic defender is the #2 best prospect in Northern California after Mack and ranks 167th overall.

Johnson is also the No. 16 defenseman nationally in the 2024 class.

Kimberly (Idaho) Receiver Gatlin Bair After posting 100m and 200m times this spring, he switched to a four-star team earlier this summer, but he also maintains his place in the top 247 after a strong junior season.

Bair is now ranked No. 179 in the country and has been the highest-rated junior from Idaho ever since Tommy Togiai in 2016 (who eventually signed with Ohio State in 2018).

He remains at the top of the Idaho State class as the #1 prospect for 2024 as well.

Both of Oregon’s top prospects in the Class of 2024 are committed to (current) Pac-12 schools, rounding out the top 247 from the region.

Medford (Ore.) Narrow end of North Medford AJ Pugliano is No. 188 in class and No. 11 in tight end nationally and No. 1 in Oregon in 2024 and he has committed to playing for the Oregon Ducks from his home state.

The second potential Oregon company in the top 247 is Lake Oswego (Ore.) Lakeridge Tight End Joe Olsen.

Olsen is ranked No. 241 nationally and No. 16 in the country in the Class of 2024 while he is No. 2 in the state. He has signed on to play at USC.

Looking for Top247 but at No. 90 and four stars in the fall update is Seattle (Washington) O’Dea cornerback Kyan McDonald.

While sometimes overshadowed by Brown and Ahfua, he is the Irish’s star defender.

There are a few players trying to play their way into the four star range going into the off-season.

Seattle (Wash.) Garfield quarterback EJ Caminong is knocking on the door, the state’s highest-rated three-star player and the highest-ranked quarterback prospect in the Pacific Northwest, checking in at No. 8 overall.

Just behind him is Puyallup (Washington) receiver Malachi Durantwho is the #1 ranked recipient in Washington state and a top 10 prospect in the state.

The other two are linemen – Clackamas (Ore.) offensive lineman Devin Brookswho is ranked #3 in Oregon State behind Pugliano and Olsen and is the top lineman in Oregon State and Vancouver (Wash.) Evergreen Offensive Tackle in 2024 Fox Craderthe top tackle prospect in Washington state and a top prospect in the Evergreen State in 2024.
