    Definitely a prospect that the new coaching staff needs to target on the DL.

    US Army All-American.

    Hopefully we land Tuiasosopo for the staff. That would help.

    FWIW, Grant is one of the better teams in California (#58 in Rivals High School rankings). Several high-level Division 1 prospects too, including possible 5* junior Shaq Thompson.

    Wrong thread. Wrong forum, and most likely the wrong website all together.


    Back to topic: I would love to see this young man in Black and Gold!

    I've seen this kid play, as I live in the Sacramento area. He could probably start day 1 for the Buffs and he isn't even the best player on Grant's squad. Shaq Thompson is. His borther Syd'Quan of course plays for the Broncos and played collegiately at Cal. I saw a game against Folsom HS to start the season (they since lost to Folsom in the playoffs) and Shaq rushed for 100 yds and a TD, caught one, threw one, and also had an interception. It was one of the most brilliant games i've ever seen a HS player have.

    Seriously I want him as a Buff a true DT with excellent skills. How is the use of Ginormous equated to in a sexual manor?

    Definitely a good pipeline to get going. Their most famous alumni are probably Donte Stallworth and Onterrio Smith but they've had a ton of other high level prospects who had reasonable success at BCS programs too. And it seems like they're even managing to improve as a program. Shaq would be an awesome get for 2012, although not sure whether he is projecting as a DB or RB in college?

    I think he could be elite at either.

    Is anyone from CU trying to get him... or is this just wishful thinking?

    Wishful thinking. I pulled Cali High's Top 25, saw that Moala is uncommitted, know he's got a Poly background, saw that Arizona (Tui) had offered, and that USC was where he'd been leaning but they've already accepted pledges from two DTs.

    Basically, it's a great fit and I would expect Tui to make a play for him. But I don't know anything.

    Moala-bonsu up the middle with uzo-diribe-west on the outside would look nice.

    does Shaq have any interest in Colorado since his bro plays right down the street?

    I think it depends on if we give him any reason to be interested? Tedford's steady as they come but that fan-base is getting restless. I don't think it's a slamdunk that Shaq or Moala goes down I-80 to play for the Bears. Once again, this is our primary recruiting ground and Grant is one of the top teams in the nation, not only the country. Embree has to hit some of these NorCal grounds hard and start making inroads. I don't think it would be a hard sell to get some of these foothill kids out to Colorado. Besides, they have Southwest/Frontier flying out of S.I.A. now so it's just a quick jump over the rockies and into Boulder.

    And when CU plays at Cal it's right near SF.

    Um, with this staff and their connections, it should be a no-brainer that they are after him. Please tell me this staff gets the importance of a great DL.
