San Mateo: Who's signed, who's available?

College of San Mateo regularly produces a lot of prospects for four-year schools and this year is no different. The Bulldogs already have four players who have signed D-1 or D-1AA scholarships and they have several more, including RB Daniel Porter (pictured) who could sign in early February...

Here's a look at the top CSM players and where they signed or what schools they are currently favoring...

Signed

DT David Hafoka - Signed with Hawaii during the mid-year signing period. Outstanding defensive lineman who could play inside or outside depending on the scheme the Warriors are running.

OT Tavita Halaholo - Signed with Idaho this year after signing with Tulsa in 2008. Halaholo is qualified academically, but ran into some complications that would not allow him to enroll at Tulsa so he turned to Idaho instead. Halaholo is an outstanding offensive lineman who projects outside with his immense size and quick feet, but he could move inside to take advantage of his drive-blocking abilities.

DB Warren Zeigler - Signed with UNLV and will get a crack at either a starting spot or the nickel corner position. With his size (6-1, 180) and speed (4.5) Zeigler is an ideal candidate to match up with bigger receivers on the outside and then move inside on passing downs to cover the slot.

LB Mateus Porter - Signed with Old Dominion and will probably end up playing outside for the Monarchs. He's got outstanding speed (4.5) and he makes tackles all over the field posting 78 tackles and one sack.


Available RB Daniel Porter - After a tough start to the season, finished off strong, posting 823 yards and five touchdowns. Speedy back who can be used as a receiver out of the backfield or a change-of-pace back at the next level. He's already got his AA degree and he's available right now.

C Jake Orth - Mid-year offensive lineman who is available now. Good size (6-2, 290) and very smart according to his coaches.

CB Dajon Green - Is another player available to sign now. He played solidly for the Bulldogs in 2008, posting 17 tackles and five passes defensed as a sophomore.

S Terence Simien - Started 21 straight games for the Bulldogs and amassed over 120 tackles and two interceptions. Simien has good size (6-2, 205) and range and he's always around the ball. Schools like Louisville and California showed early interest.

LB Matt Taufoou - He played middle linebacker and led CSM with 90 tackles, 4.5 sacks and one interception. With his size and instincts, would be an ideal SAM in the right system. He was named a First Team All-American and he's currently being recruiting by Cal to play fullback and he's got offers from New Mexico State and Sacramento State among others.

LB Ratu Rabela - Led the Bulldogs with 6.5 sacks from his outside linebacker position. Can run and would be an ideal fit as a 3-4 outside linebacker.

DE Jamie Fehoko Ideal An ideal 3-4 defensive end, Fehoko led CSM in tackles for loss with 13.5 and also finished second on the team with 5.5 sacks. In a 4-3 he could play either a rush end position or even switch inside to be a three-technique defensive tackle. Fehoko also received First Team All-State honors for his outstanding sophomore season.

OL Anthony Arellanes - Devastating run-blocker who paved the way for a rushing attack that averaged 210 yards per game.

Other available CSM players: QB J.T. Ramos; QB Wes Price; RB Tony Carasco; OLB Bentel Bolden; CB Glenn Pettis; WR Danny Keenan; OL Joe Perea; DE/DT Alec Williams; P/K Ernesto Lacayo; CB Richard Wilson.
