"I have offers from Fresno State and San Diego State," Vaimili told JCFootball.com recently. "I have also had contact with multiple schools -- Utah State, Louisville, Texas State, Utah, Baylor and California -- but those are my only two offers."
As a freshman last season, while playing both strong and weakside defensive end, Vaimili totaled 15 tackles, one sack and 2.5 tackles-for-loss, using his quick first step and long frame to cause problems for opponents.
"I feel like I'm really good at locating the ball, stuff the run and I can get after the quarterback as a pass rusher and being a leader on the defensive side," Vaimili noted. "This offseason I am working at getting faster and getting stronger in the weight room and expanding my arsenal of moves."
In addition to his exploits on defense, Vaimili is also a long-snapper and he can play on multiple special teams units as well.
During a very good high school career at powerhouse Junipero Serra in Gardena, California, Vaimili only drew and offer from Western New Mexico, so he opted to head to Mt. San Antonio, but before he enrolled, he decided to leave.
"Unfortunately, things didn't work out there, so I came back home and my defensive line coach, Kenny Talanoa, he called my dad," Vaimili recalled. "I came down for a visit and liked it. It just felt comfortable here."
Vaimili is a solid student and he will finish up his two-year degree in December and he will have three years to play two following the 2015 football season.
