Jonathan Baldwin of Paso Robles High School no longer has to deal with the anxiety of waiting on his first scholarship offer, because Sacramento State emerged as his initial pledge on Tuesday, Sept. 16.

Baldwin, who's listed as a 6-foot-3, 230-pound tight end and outside linebacker, was coming home to letters from different Football Championship Subdivision and Mountain West programs before the Hornets decided to extend an offer to him.

"I'm really excited. They have a great program and they love their tight ends. So we'll see how things turn out," Baldwin said.

Baldwin has played three seasons with the varsity team at PRHS. As a tight end, he has 24 career receptions for 319 yards and three touchdowns. Defensively, Baldwin has two interceptions through the first three games for the Bearcats.

Paso (3-0) returns home against St. Joseph-Santa Maria (2-1) at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 19.


Darian Owens of Clovis West landed his sixth scholarship offer on Sept. 16 from UCLA, who's now the fifth PAC-12 program to make a run at the rising junior.

The chiseled 6-foot-2, 188-pound Owens holds offers from the University of Oregon, USC, Washington State, Cal and Washington from the aforementioned conference. The University of Oklahoma of the Big 12 is his other pledge.

Owens currently leads the 2-1 Golden Eagles with 10 receptions and 213 yards. His two touchdown receptions are tied for the team lead.

Owens and Clovis West have a bye this week.
