"Some of the schools expected to come in spring are UNLV, Hawaii, Colorado State and Boise State," said Nankil.

Timmy Chang, now the head coach at Hawaii, had been recruiting him too when he was at both Nevada and Colorado State.

"I'm talking with Hawaii with coach Chang," said Nankil. "He recruited me a little bit while with Colorado State."

Probably just a courtesy to list UH among his top 13 options....but it wouldn't be a surprise if he takes another unofficial visit to UH (since he is friends with Penei Pavihi, Steven Fiso, and Blessman & Maurice Ta'ala). https://twitter.com/FrancisMauigoa/status/1503552308205875203

Francis Mauigoa OT/DT from Amerika Samoa.

Played 2019 frosh season for Aquinas Catholic HS (San Bernardino, CA.), then played 2020 sophomore season for Tafuna HS (Amerika Samoa), and is slated to play 2021 junior season for IMG Academy (Bradenton, FL.). Older brother Francisco signed to play OLB for Wazzu (under Rolo) as an incoming true frosh this Fall, while oldest brother Frederick started at C for Wazzu (under Mike Leach).

From Star-Advertiser....
One of the top 2023 football prospects has made the University of Hawaii the first stop on what is expected to be a lengthy recruiting process.

On Tuesday, Francis Mauigoa came away impressed from an unofficial UH visit, during which he and his mother Telesia met the coaches and academic counselors, went through a presentation, and toured the campus.

“I enjoyed it a lot,” said Mauigoa, a 6-foot-6, 325-pound offensive tackle. “The presentation they had, I really liked it. It was more than I expected. They really stood out to me. The O-line coach had this thing that stood out to me: the mentality and how to dominate (opponents) with strength mentality.”

Telesia said: “What a great experience. The coaches were very informative, very kind. They gave us the best information we asked for about UH and the program, and what makes a champ a champ. It was a great experience.”

Mauigoa was born and reared in American Samoa. As a freshman, he moved to San Bernardino, Calif., to attend Aquinas Catholic High School. But as the pandemic heightened, he returned to American Samoa. This year, he enrolled at IMG Academy, a school in Bradenton, Fla., whose football team competes nationally. IMG is the 2020 national champion.

The 247Sports site reported Mauigoa already has received 21 offers. Mauigoa said UH is “most definitely” a consideration. Penei Pavihi, Steven Fiso, Blessman Ta‘ala and Maurice Ta‘ala are among the Warriors whom Mauigoa considers as close friends.

“I want to take as many visits as I can first,” Tapaatoutai said. “Hawaii is another school that is intriguing to me and I’m in close contact with their staff. I know it’s really nice there so we’ll see if that can happen.

No surprise that UH didn't make Lefau's top 8....

Lefau will be another good Kahuku HS player that fizzles in college bc he lacks the lateral speed and instincts.

In his tape, there's too many false steps bc he's not reading keys. This habit will be exposed in college bc the talent level is higher and quicker backs we lead to him being late or having the wrong angle.
Be humble and confident in yourself and all things you do. :zook:
