Gardena (Calif.) Junipero Serra four-star athlete Rodrick Pleasant has been thisclose to breaking the California state 100-meter record for some time. A week ago, he ran a wind-aided 10.16, which was just short of breaking the state record.

On Saturday, he left no doubt.. Pleasant blazed to a wind-legal 10.14 100 to put his name atop the record books.

Pleasant has put down a 200-meter time of 20.40 seconds, another that stacks up among the best in the history of the state.

He is the No. 157 overall recruit in the 2023 cycle, according to the On3 Consensus, a complete and equally weighted industry-generated average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies. Pleasant ranks as the sixth-ranked athlete in the country and the 11th-ranked prospect from the state of California.

Rodrick Pleasant has his first official visit scheduled

Rodrick Pleasant announced his top 13 schools in February: ArizonaBoston CollegeCalColoradoGeorgiaMichiganOle MissOregonPenn StateTexasUCLAUSC and Utah.

Boston College is receiving his first official visit, which will occur from June 10-12.

“They have been recruiting me from the very beginning,” Pleasant told On3. “Coach [JeffHafley and coach Aazaar [Adbul-Rahim] have always been there and we have a great relationship.

He currently has an On3 NIL Valuation of $25k. The On3 NIL Valuation is an index that looks to set the standard market value for both high school and college-level athletes. The NIL valuation does not act as a tracker of the value of NIL deals an athlete has completed to date. It rather signifies an athlete’s value at a certain moment in time.

That will likely increase as his performance this weekend stretches across the country.
