Southern California is filled with high school football talent, and we’re taking a shot at ranking the top 100 players.

The rankings encompass the Southern Section, L.A. City Section and San Diego Section.

We began by looking at numbers 100 through 76 and then continued our countdown with numbers 75 to 51. Here are numbers 50 to 26.

#50 – Calen Bullock – 2021 Muir S/WR

Bullock intercepted six passes as a sophomore. This offseason he's played on both sides of the ball for Muir in seven-on-seven and has dominated defensive backs as a receiver. Bullock didn't play too much wide-out as a sophomore, but should get more opportunities in 2019.

#49 – Elijah Jackson – 2020 Lawndale CB/WR

Jackson caught 14 passes for 304 yards and three touchdowns in 2018. He made 64 tackles and picked off three passes on defense. The rising senior was a big part of Lawndale's state championship run. His 6-foot-2 frame makes him a fantastic college prospect. He has scholarship offers from Cal, Washington and UCLA.

#48 – Seth Figgins – 2020 Westlake TE

Figgins has had the injury bug throughout his high school career, but he's healthy and ready for his senior season. He caught everything thrown his way at the Conejo Classic seven-on-seven tournament earlier this summer. The Oregon commit stands at 6-foot-6 and weighs 225 pounds.

#47 – Jordan Berry – 2020 Narbonne DT

Berry is one of the best run-stuffers in Southern California. The LSU commit suffered a serious injury in Narbonne's state bowl game defeat to Cathedral Catholic a year ago and will hopefully be ready to play in the Gauchos' opener against Buchanan next month. He had seven tackles for loss in 2018.

#46 – Ethan Calvert – 2021 Oaks Christian LB

Football runs in the Calvert family. Ethan's oldest brother Bo plays linebacker at UCLA. His middle brother Josh plays linebacker for Washington. Ask either of the older Calvert's who they think will become the best football player in the family and they both will say Ethan. In 2018, Ethan caught a touchdown on offense and had 41 tackles and three sacks on defense for Oaks Christian. The Lions' linebacker partnership of Calvert and Mister Williams will be one of the best in Southern California in 2019.

#45 – John Humphry – 2020 Muir CB/WR

Humphry has exploded onto the national scene this offseason. He started the spring without any scholarship offers, but performed so well at the Opening regional camp in Oakland that he earned an invitation to the Opening Finals in Frisco, Texas. He returns to a Muir team that will be loaded at the skill positions in 2019. In addition to Humphry, opposing teams will have to game plan for CB/WR Jamier Johnson and CB/WR Calen Bullock.
