The list included Parkrose High defensive back Nino Reliford, a 6-1, 175-pounder who moved to Portland from Dillard High in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and was all-Northwest Oregon Conference.

• Southern Oregon, NAIA Frontier Conference runner-up last year, added 33 freshmen recruits — including three members of Central Catholic High's Class 6A champions.

Going from the Rams to the Raiders are receivers Chase Cole (5-7, 165 pounds) and Holden Oglesbee (6-1, 195) and defensive end Sean Rogers (6-4, 210).
