The CIF Southern Section’s sit-out period is over. Student-athletes that transferred schools and didn’t move residence have served their penance, and are now eligible to play as of Friday, September 30.

The LA City Section’s sit-out period window ended last week.

Oaks Christian lineman and linebacker Dylan Hampsten (a transfer from Saugus) is the area’s biggest impact transfer that will be eligible. He was a Daily News All-Area selection last season after recording 40 tackles and a team-high 10.5 sacks.

“I’m feeling great now that I finally get to play!” Hampsten said.

Oaks Christian also receives the service of quarterback Axel Eason and lineman Will Simic – both will add depth to both positions.

Ololade Adeduro, a 6-foot-3, 230-pound defensive end, becomes eligible for Alemany, along with wideout Michael Lindsay and lineman Andrew Angel, according to the CIF website.

Calabasas (4-1) will add Anthony Simon to the offensive line and Roberto Paladines at linebacker.

Defensive back Tyler Scott becomes eligible for West Ranch (6-0) after transferring from Alemany. Preston Handler, a defensive back and wideout for Thousand Oaks (5-0), is now available. Cody Wirz will add some depth to the secondary and backfield for Newbury Park (5-1). Granada Hills Charter (3-1) adds John Williamson at defensive end and tight end this week.
