UNLV Offers Naufahu

College of San Mateo RB George Naufahu (6-1, 225) has been waiting patiently to figure out where he will play in 2014 and now that he has his first offer he may be able to decide very soon...

"UNLV offered me the other day," Naufahu told JCFootball.com via text.

The offer is talented tailback's first and there could be more brewing as schools like Idaho, Texas, Utah State and San Jose State have all been showing interest.

As a freshman in 2012, Naufahu used his downhill running style to post 524 yards and seven touchdowns on just 68 carries while working behind a sophomore starter.

This past fall, Naufahu got a vast majority of the carries and managed to post 1,183 yards and set a school-record with 19 touchdowns scored (17 rushing, two receiving) and was named to the All-State team at the end of the season.

"Most people think of me as a power-runner and that's a pretty good description, but I can make guys miss in space and I have good football speed even though my forty isn't anything special (4.6)," Naufahu said. "This spring I worked a lot on my quickness and my hands so I can be a better receiver out of the backfield. I never dropped a pass that was thrown my way, but I want to be an even bigger threat out of the backfield to help the offense."

Naufahu has finished up his two-year degree, so he is eligible to sign with a school at anytime and he hopes to find a home within the next couple of months.

Wherever he winds up, Naufahu will have three years to play two once he steps on campus.
