    I think he commits to us but ends up at Washington.

    Just don't see the explosion, fluidity and great instincts in his tape. He is a good player, but I'm not in love with him. With that said, he would be a nice pick-up for us, especially after the monster class we had last year.

    Hey BLF, word is it's USC. What do you think? Isn't the other LB also a 250 lbs?

    I'd love to see us keep loading up in the front seven. And I always like to see athletic, physical thumpers added. You can't teach size. You just can never have too many studs in the middle of a defense!

    He could turn into a lineman.

    Like him much better moving vertically than horizontally. Relentless and good motor, but agree he lacks explosiveness. Okay at MIKE, although he’d be sitting a while behind Solo or IE (whoever assumes that role after Cam). Might be better at SAM or Predator, since he looks to have room to put on another 20 lbs.

    Looking like it.

    Yes, very similar to Stanley Taufoou, but I think Stanley could be a gem. Kid is just a monster and could have an incredible senior year.

    Stanley is one of the most underrated recruits in this recruiting cycle. Love his tape and what he did at the USC Camp.

    His dad played at Washington.
    For whatever reason people around UT are thinking he will commit.
    From rumors he has family on the inside pushing him to Texas.

    I guess both SC and Texas are confident he will commit.
    I doubt Washington is a player unless he feels like he should follow his father.

    The other LB Daniel Helmuli is looking like he is going to UW
    So Tufono as I said will commit to Texas or SC tomorrow

    It is official, I now have co-favorite commitment videos.
    Faith and family and two of my foundations and this kid was pulling at my soft spots.
    This one and Marshall's video are now sharing the top spot, with Steele/Imatorbhebhe in that 2nd tier.

    Congratulations, welcome to the family that is USC, and Fight On Maninoa!!

    Ok I can't say a word about the kid as a prospect (don't follow recruiting like most people do), but that video was dope.

    Fight On, young man. Welcome to the FAMILY!

    6'3" 255 lbs! Yeah I'd say he's a future Dlineman. Nothing wrong with that. Fight On Maninoa!
