Six offers and counting for CSM's Faoliu
"One of the big things I really focused on last year was cutting off the cut-back, so a back couldn't do that to our defense, and I also have enough speed to track things down on the opposite side."
As a freshman this past season, Faoliu played the weakside defensive end in the Bulldog's 3-4 scheme and notched 37 tackles, 6.5 tackles-for-loss, two sacks and one interception and that productivity, along with his outstanding size and athleticism have garnered him six offers and more could be on the way.
"My offers right now are Western Michigan, Maryland, UNLV, Utah State, Washington State and Oregon State," Faoliu said. "Fresno State has been calling and talking to me and Hawaii recently started recruiting me and talking about things too.
"It's been great actually. I really am excited about the offers and they've made me work a lot harder. I was already focused on getting more explosive this year so I can be even better at rushing the quarterback, but those offers just have made me that much more focused."
As a prep, Faoliu enjoyed a solid career at Vallejo (Ca.) High School, but he didn't get a lot of attention.
"My school wasn't very good when I was there so I didn't get a lot of attention," Faoliu admitted. "San Mateo is a great football program and the year I came out they had just gone to the state championship and had lost by one, so I knew it was a chance for me to get good coaching and to win some games."
Faoliu is on pace to graduate in December and he will have three years to play two following the 2012 football season.
