Another DL. Always need more DL athletes.

A major project, but a very, very high ceiling.
Ethnic mixed race Samoan/Caucasian with a bit of Chinese and Maori, who may appreciate the diversity of Cal.
He played American football at the club level in New Zealand, but has never played in the US due to Covid. Thus, there's very little tape on him. One camp tape, plus a few twitter snippets. However, I can see what Coach B sees in him. Pure, raw power on the short camp tape that he has. Powerful lower body as an engine, explosive for an undertrained kid who is 270 pounds. His tape focused on outside shoulder rush, an occassional bull rush and inside counter. And his wins included not just "I tapped the cone first", but straight up destroying his opponent. Come in angry.
A surprising amount of weapons for a guy who hasn't been at it long. This kid is the real deal. Coach B found a unpolished gem. Where are we going to put all these beasts we've got in the box?
Very good Subtitle. Knowing what we know about the 2020 season, we can never have enough D Lineman, notably at the NG position.
Will Ieremia also play rugby?
Also, feeling already inspired by this dude, I propose a name change from the Old Blues to the All Blues. Less ageist, more inclusive.
Welcome. More depth one the line is a good thing. We seem to have had our share of lower body injuries in that position group
In Wilcox and Browning I trust to evaluate talent. We need bodies on the Dline. If we can build a strong and top 5 Dline, then we know our backfield will join them in being great. I can't begin to say how much I look forward to the 2021 season back at Memorial, and with this class, years to come.
