Porchia breaks out--recruiting madness ensuing?

Stanford was in the house on Friday for Mission Oak's game versus Golden West and the Cardinal likely had their eyes on highly-touted tight end/outside linebacker Kevin Palma.

Well, maybe either them, or another Division-I school can come back to Tulare for another Hawk stud, class of 2014 prospect Elijah Porchia.

The do-everything offensive threat and two-year varsity starter had a game for the ages for Mission Oak. Porchia went wild with 396 total all-purpose yards and five total touchdowns running and receiving. His most production came through the ground game, with 331 yards on 14 carries and four scores, including two runs of 76 and 95 yards.

Porchia had the type of night that would make Fantasy Football players wish they could pick him up. If you ask me though, I'm not surprised that he had this kind of night.

I've watched Porchia on at least two occasions. The last time I saw him was at the Passing Down State Finals back in May. He's got the speed and hips to make cuts then leave a trail of turf in front of his defenders. He's not just one of the better running backs in the Central Section, he's a versatile threat who can destroy defenses in so many ways.

If Palma can become highly recruited at Mission Oak, something is telling me Porchia is next in line.
