  Quarterback Tyler Hilinski of Upland has committed to Washington State. He becomes the latest of the Southern California's outstanding quarterback class to make a college commitement. He passed 3,053 yards and 34 touchdowns last season as a junior after transferring from Sherman Oaks Notre Dame, where his older brother, Kelly, was the quarterback and ended up attending Columbia.

One of the best defensive lineman in the Serra League was Deion Dayao, a 6-foot-1, 265-pound senior at Sherman Oaks Notre Dame. He was the co-defensive player of the year. He recently picked up scholarship interest in track as a shot putter from UC Santa Barbara, but he wants to keep playing football. He had 52 tackles, 11 sacks, seven tipped passes and one interception. And he's got a great name. Eric.sondheimer@latimes.com

 Something is going on with the Sherman Oaks Notre Dame track and field program. Of the 180 boys on the track team, 32 are shot putters. "We try to make it fun," Coach Joe McNab said. On Thursday, in a dual meet against Alemany, five of the shot putters surpassed 50 feet, led by Kyle Swanson, who was at 53-9. Apparently they like throwing around a 12-pound lead ball at Notre Dame. It's fun. Eric.sondheimer@latimes.com

In 19 years of marriage, Sherman Oaks Notre Dame offensive line coach Jeff Kraemer said, not once did his wife, Cynthia, ask about the offensive line's duties. Now that their son, Grant, has become the starting quarterback, trouble could be brewing. "I have a bone to pick with you," Cynthia told her husband the other day. "Your guys have to block longer so my son can throw the ball. " Welcome to their world. And if the new quarterback doesn't have enough to worry about, his younger brother, Derek, a sophomore at Notre Dame, is doing commentary for the school online, and he's promising to hold nothing back.

 With rain expected on Friday and Saturday, Sherman Oaks Notre Dame's new $3 million all-weather baseball field may not get in its first official game. Or it could be the only field capable of playing a game depending on the weather conditions. Notre Dame is scheduled to play Arleta at 11 a.m. on the opening day of the high school baseball season. The field has lights, so the game could be delayed until conditions allow it to be played. It will be the first test of the field's drainage system.

 When it comes to producing in your senior season, Kale Morton of Glendora is coming through similar to former Glendora standout Adam Plutko. Morton improved to 7-0 on Tuesday, throwing a one-hitter with 10 strikeouts in Glendora's 1-0 Baseline League victory over Rancho Cucamonga. Glendora (14-5, 7-1) scored on an error in the seventh. Nick Kaye and Alex Briggs each had two hits. Upland defeated Los Osos, 6-3. Jack Flaherty struck out 15 and allowed two hits in Harvard-Westlake's 5-0 win over Capistrano Valley Christian.

College football recruiters have their GPS devices powered on as they begin visiting high schools to evaluate players over the next month. Let me provide a few suggestions on players who have been overlooked so far. Maybe they don't fit a height-weight requirement. Maybe they were injured last season. Maybe they don't participate in seven-on-seven all-star passing tournaments. Maybe they play multiple sports. Whatever the reason for not receiving early buzz, these players will be standouts in the fall, and it's far more relevant how someone performs in a real game compared with how they look running around a red cone.

 Junior Dominic Davis of Mission Hills Alemany is following the legacy established by former Sherman Oaks Notre Dame sprinter Khalfani Muhammad by showing there's still lots of speed from Mission League athletes. On Saturday, Davis ran the 100 meters in 10.47 seconds to win the invitational race at the Mt. San Antonio College High School Invitational. Like Muhammad, who won the state championship in the 100 and 200, Davis is also a running back in football. Loyola's 400-meter relay team won its race in 41.58.

There's a field of dreams taking shape at Sherman Oaks Notre Dame, where a new $3-million baseball stadium is nearing completion, and when the painting is finally finished, the nets are up and the all-weather turf is firmly in place, it will be hard to find a better high school baseball facility. “It's all kind of coming to fruition,” Notre Dame baseball Coach Tom Dill said Thursday after giving me a tour of the new facility. The stadium is set to be unveiled for the Notre Dame alumni game on Feb. 22, but Dill and his players are already getting excited.

It's the 30th season of coaching football at Sherman Oaks Notre Dame for Kevin Rooney , so it's only fitting that he take his team on its first out-of-state road trip to the place where high school football means everything, Texas. Today at about 5:30 p.m. Pacific time, you can turn on Fox Sports West and watch the Knights take on Spring (Texas) Klein Oak from the new Dallas Cowboys Stadium as part of the Kirk Herbstreit Challenge. "It's an honor to be invited because we don't have to pay anything, and to play in that stadium is a great opportunity," Rooney said.

 Oreste Simi, the starting quarterback at Taft last season as a junior, has transferred to Birmingham. He better be ready for a challenge, because Birmingham Coach Jim Rose has put together a very tough nonleague schedule that includes games against Newbury Park, Sherman Oaks Notre Dame, Fairfax, Chaminade and Oaks Christian. "Let's play the best," Rose said. Simi was expected to receive strong competition from Chris Duncan, a standout last season on Taft's junior varsity team.
