SoCal OL sees stock rise

Moreno Valley (Calif.) Rancho Verde annually puts out some of the top prospects in the state every year. The Mustangs look loaded once again in the 2013 class and offensive lineman Poasi Moala is beginning to create a nice buzz following his strong showing at the NIKE Camp.

Poasi Moala first caught everyone's attention with his wild hair but then his play was all everyone talked about afterward. He has a great frame, came in at 6-5, 260 pounds, and might have been the most athletic lineman in the camp.

"That's what he is, he's a big athlete and he can run," Mustang coach Pete Duffy said. "He's still a little raw as a football player but in about week three or four last season, the light bulb turned on for him and he just started mauling people.

"He's a very athletic kid and could play either tackle position. I think he's still growing too so he could really develop in to a beast. I just got his tape out and Washington State and San Diego State have offered this week and Oregon said they're offering as soon as they come by and see him in the spring."

As for favorites, Duffy said a few schools stand out right now.

"He's cousins with Junior Pomee so he likes USC a lot," Duffy said. "He likes Oregon and Florida, honestly, I think he's still pretty open to everyone. He'll go through the process and see who really likes him and then do what's best for him."
