Three of the top players in the West region made their college choices on Wednesday.

Wideout Devon Blackmon (Fontana, Calif./Summit) and defensive end Greg Townsend Jr. (Beverly Hills, Calif./Beverly Hills) made their choices during the Under Armour All-America Game and offensive lineman Ryan Nowicki (Glendale, Ariz./Cactus) surprised some with his college choice.

As expected, Blackmon committed to Oregon and Townsend chose USC. Nowicki decided to leave the West Coast and will play his college ball for Penn State.
