A couple of recruiting tidbits.
Waianae’s Kanai Mauga, a junior defensive end listed at 6-foot-2, 210 pounds, told me Sunday that he has received a scholarship offer from Oregon State.
Mauga was a beast against Kapolei last Saturday. He completely blew up the right tackle blocking him on the Hurricanes’ first two passing plays and was then double-teamed for most of the game. He had a tipped pass at the line and also got one sack of Kapolei QB Taulia Tagovailoa. In the Seariders’ first game of the season, Mauga had a 25-yard interception return for a touchdown that resulted in Waianae’s first score of the season. Pretty good start to the season for him — and his fourth-ranked Seariders.
Also, in what has become a weekly thing, Punahou defensive end Miki Suguturaga (6-5, 245) picked up offer No. 13.
