If it's February, it's time for the movement of quarterbacks, and in Southern California high school football, there's been some big movement.

Seven quarterbacks have switched schools. Matthew McDonald went from Mater Dei to Mission Viejo. Brevin White went from Alemany to Chaminade. Michael Bonds went from Newport Harbor to St. Francis. Ryan Hilinski went from JSerra to Orange Lutheran. Tyger Goslin went from Chatsworth to Moorpark. John Buksa went from Long Beach Millikan to St. Anthony. John Jackson went from Mater Dei to Gardena Serra.

It's hardly unusual and it's not done yet.

Miles Bryant, the starter last season at St. Francis who was going to have to compete with Bonds, could end up at Alemany.

To be eligible immediately, all will have to move and also make sure that their moves were not for athletic reasons.

The Southern Section can't declare someone ineligible for an athletic transfer unless there's clear proof the move was done for athletic reasons.

If the player doesn't move, he'll be ineligible until Oct. 3, the day sitout players become eligible.

Also, two players from Las Vegas Bishop Gorman, standout receiver Tyjon Lindsey and defensive back Brendan Radley-Hiles, announced via Twitter that they are moving back to Southern California.

Lindsey will become one of the top receivers in California after announcing he's headed to two-time Pac-5 champion Corona Centennial, where he'll get to catch passes from 6-foot-6 quarterback Tanner Mckee.
