A couple of years ago I did an article about which high schools produced the most Pac-12 football players. As time passed I was interested in seeing in how the landscape of high school alma matters in the Pac-12 have changed.
So, two years later, here are the high schools that produce the most current Pac-12 football players.
*I used each school's official site roster and added in the high school signees not yet enrolled and any known transfers not yet listed. Also, note that these numbers include walk-ons.
1. Juniperro Serra (Gardena, CA) - 15 players
Current stars - Adoree Jackson CB USC
Former stars - Deon Figures, Marqise Lee, Paul Richardson, Robert Woods
2016 Stars - DE Oluwole Betiku, ATH Brandon Burton, S C.J. Pollard
Serra has long been a USC factory and continues to pump out big time recruits every year. It seems like they have a five-star and a couple four-star prospects in each class and they usually stay local.
2. Bellevue, WA - 13 players
Current stars - Budda Baker S Washington, Myles Jack LB UCLA
Former stars - David DeCastro
2016 Stars - CB Isaiah Gilchrist
This was a bit of a surprise, but it shouldn't be. Bellevue has long been a powerhouse up in the Northwest and have been loading up Pac-12 schools with talent in recent years.
Tied - 3 - Loyola (Los Angeles) - 12 players
Former stars - Anthony Barr, Chris Conte, Danny Farmer, Matt Ware
2016 Stars - CB David Long
Loyola was the top school when we last did this list, but the historical Los Angeles athlete factory got jumped by a couple schools this time around.
Tied - 3- St. John Bosco (Bellflower, CA ) - 12 players
Former stars - Todd Husak, Keith Price
2016 Stars - RB Sean McGrew
Bosco sent about 12 guys to the Pac-12 in one year a couple of classes ago. Watch for Class of 2015 QB Josh Rosen to turn into a star at UCLA.
5. Upland, CA - 11 players
Current stars - Kenny Lawler WR Cal
Upland has quietly turned into a Pac-12 factory. It hasn't produced a large amount of huge stars or anything, but the school is regularly starting to produce solid players.
Tied - 6 - Centennial (Corona, CA) - 10 players
Former stars - Vontaze Burfict, Taylor Martinez, Matt Scott, Will Sutton
2016 stars - WR Javon McKinley
Arizona State fans are very familiar with Centennial as they have mined the school for a ton of talent, but they aren't the only school as the Centennial has been a big Pac-12 hub as of late.
Tied - 6 - Long Beach Polytechnic - 10 players
Current stars - Juju Smith WR USC
Formers stars - Darnell Bing, Jurrell Casey, DeSean Jackson, Winston Justice, Kareem Kelly, Marcedes Lewis, Willie McGinist, Samie Parker, Ken-Yon Rambo, Manuel Wright
2016 stars - CB Jack Jones
The most famous high school out west is still loading up Pac-12 schools with talent and probably will be for a long, long time.
Tied - 6 - Punahou School (Honolulu) - 10 players
Current stars - DeForest Buckner DE Oregon
Former stars - Manti Te'o LB Notre Dame
Punahou has replaced Saint Louis as the go-to Hawaii powerhouse for Pac-12 talent.
Tied - 10 - Mater Dei (Santa Ana, CA) - 9 players
Former stars - Matt Barkley, Colt Brennan, Matt Grootegood, Khaled Holmes, Matt Leinart
2016 stars - LB Curtis Robinson, G Frank Martin
A classic Pac-12 pipeline, Mater Dei has been a valuable school for USC for a long time.
Tied - 10 - Oaks Christian (Westlake Village, CA) - 9 players
Current stars - Ishmael Adams CB UCLA, Jordan Payton WR UCLA
Former stars - Cassius Marsh
2016 stars - ATH Michael Pittman
This new school has quickly becoming one of the best prospect factories in the nation. I wouldn't be surprised if this school ends up taking the top spot in a few years.

St. Bonaventure (Ventura, CA)
