Tustin senior cornerback Treshon Broughton (6-0, 170), who has an offer from Oregon State among others, has transferred to Inland Empire powerhouse Vista Murrieta, Tillers football coach Myron Miller said Friday.
“They got a big-time guy,” Miller said.
Broughton is 19th in the latest OCVarsity recruiting rankings for the Class of 2013.
Vista Murrieta captured the CIF-SS Inland Division title last season, defeating Centennial of Corona, 35-28, in the finals. The Broncos’ final record was 8-5, but all five losses were forfeits for using an ineligible player.
Vista Murrieta athletic dircector Ray Moore declined Friday to discuss whether Broughton has enrolled at the school, citing student confidentiality.
Miller said rising Tustin junior linebacker/tight end Greg Hoyd (6-3, 215) also has transferred to Vista Murrieta. Hoyd has offers from New Mexico State and Duke.
Hoyd started for the Tillers at tight end as a sophomore.
Vista Murrieta is led by USC commit and touted recruit Su’a Cravens, the No. 1 safety prospect in the nation according to scout.com.
Tustin junior linebacker Andrew Scott (6-3, 230), who also started as a sophomore, has transferred to Mission Viejo, Diablos coach Bob Johnson confirmed Friday.
Tustin, the defending CIF-SS Southwest Division champion, still has a strong group of core returners and got transfer DaVonte Young from St. John Bosco.
“We’re still going to be solid,” Miller said.
