In addition to Barkley, Daniels and Marinovich other notable names to lead the Monarchs offense include Matt Leinart, Bryce Young, John Huarte, Colt Brennan and Max Wittek.
San Marcos transfer Emmett Brown
is also expected to see time under center this year.
The three-star quarterback threw for over 1,800 yards and 14 touchdowns during his sophomore season and already has offers from Colorado, Florida Atlantic, New Mexico and Old Dominion.
Either Brown will have a cadre of weapons as well as one of the best offensive lines in the state.
The running back position is loaded with playmakers led by Air Force signee Marceese Yetts
, five-star Oklahoma commit Raleek Brown
and three-star junior Quincy Craig
. Expect all three to be factors in the passing game.
The Monarchs are playing a five-game schedule that features only Trinity League opponents.
The two biggest games are April 3 against a loaded Servite (Anaheim) squad which won its season opener 42-6 against Damien (La Verne). The Monarchs close out the spring against the 2019 MaxPreps National Champions St. John Bosco (Bellflower) on April 17 at Santa Ana Stadium. The Braves beat a very talented Sierra Canyon (Chatsworth) team 42-21 in their season opener.
