Two Offers And Counting for JUCO DT Prospect

It's been a busy month already for Snow DT Manaia Perese (6-3, 285). While preparing for the football season, the athletic interior defensive line prospect has started to see recruiting pick up and he's recently hauled in his first two offers...



Perese graduated from Mililani (Hi.) High School after moving there from American Samoa. As a freshman, the talented defensive lineman enrolled at Weber State where he played as a true freshman in 2013.

"I left there and Snow gave me a second chance to prove myself again, so here I am," Perese told JCFootball.com. "I am doing everything to make it to the top again and there will be no turning back."

So far this spring, Perese has shown quickness, strength and the ability to get to the quarterback from his defensive tackle position and that talent has drawn the attention of several schools including two that have extended offers.

"I have offers from Kansas and Tulsa right now and I have been talking to Nevada and Boise State," Perese noted.

Perese is on pace to graduate in December and he will have two years to play two starting in the fall.

JCFootball.com will continue to keep tabs on Perese over the coming weeks and months and we will update news on him as it happens.
