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.

Virginia is the first school from the ACC to offer Suguturaga, whose offers sheet breaks down like this per conference.


Pac-12: 4 (Arizona State, Oregon State, Utah, Washington State)
MWC: 4 (Hawaii, UNLV, San Diego State, San Jose State)
Indy: 2 (BYU, Army)
SEC: 2 (Arkansas, Vanderbilt)
ACC: 1 (Virginia)

Suguturaga and the Buffanblu return to action Sept. 1 on a Thursday night against Kamehameha at Aloha Stadium.
