Grossmont LB Homer Mauga (6-0, 220) missed most of his freshman season with an injured shoulder, but…
Mauga ready to go for 2009
Mauga prepped at Helix in La Mesa, Ca. and was a full-qualifier, but he was only lightly recruited after a solid prep career. The family legacy at Grossmont led him to play for the Griffins.
"Three of my brothers have played here (Dallas, Josh and Magnum) and all three played D-1 ball so it was just what I felt comfortable with," Mauga said. "The coaches here made me feel comfortable, I know I will get a good education and I know they always get their guys ready to play at the next level."
As a freshman in 2008, Mauga only posted 20 tackles, two sacks and an interception, but that is because he injured his left shoulder in game four and was lost for the remainder of the season.
"It's healed up great and I'm ready to go," Mauga said. "I'm working hard this summer and I'll be ready to go when he report for camp in the next week or so."
On the recruiting front, Mauga already has three offers and more could be on the way.
"UNLV is my one D-1 offer and then I have offers from Idaho State and Sacramento State," Mauga said. "I'm getting a lot of interest from Nevada, UCLA, Arizona State, Iowa State and Kansas State and I think they might be getting close to offering, but I don't have offers from them yet."
Since Mauga was a full-qualifier out of high school he can sign with a school at any time, but he plans to play at Grossmont this season, sign in December and he'll have three years to play two wherever he ends up.
