    Now I want Foskey to join him
    I tried posting on him a couple of times but there just wasn't a lot of info out there. The staff has been on this kid for awhile now. I think his junior film and our connections to the program were worthy of interest and his midseason senior film got folks pretty excited. Since he wasn't taking visits until after the season or talking much with the media, this seemed a little more unexpected than it really was.

      Yes. Didn't realize they were related.

        Finally watched his senior highlights on HUDL, sunuvabitch. He is very fast when shooting gaps, looks instinctual and he's a playmaker.

        I wouldn't be surprised if he plays ST as a freshman. He loves contact and he gets upfield in a hurry. Even his hands looked good against OL.

        Spin move at 2:10 was nice, showing he has something besides the speed rush. He bull rushed a couple times and almost pancaked an OL/TE.

        If he's a 3 star - i'll take 5 just like him every year.

            Rivals is saying good news is coming today. His cousin Sefo Liufau who played QB at Colorado a few years ago tweeted this out today.

            Sounds like this is the "good news" Or maybe it's Enzo Jennings? Either way really excited for this young man to join ND because he's got some crazy good bloodlines and it's nice to be back in Hawaii again

                      To be fair, Big23Head posted the link 7 hours ago.

                                Cousin congratulates him on his commitment to ND and he says thanks. Not sure why it's not boom time.

                                    That has been known all day, lol. There is obviously a reason it's being kept quiet by the sites, especially 247. He clearly hasn't made his "public" announcement yet, I'd just as soon save the booms for that.

                                            Love it! Interesting prospect. Wonder how big he'll get. His film says Rover, but maybe he'll grow into a Buck?

                                                      Maybe I'm just keying in on the hair, but his senior highlights bring to mind Devin Bush's HS film with a larger frame. Plays close to the line, deceptive speed. I am very interested in what happens in the next few years at LB.

                                                                                        What's crazy is how fast and vicious he is going after the ball carrier. He's got a physical nature and bad attitude on the field. Just needs to put on some good weight.

                                                                                        We probably though Julian was too small for the Drop position, yet here we are.

Picking up a Rover looked to have gained a lot of importance since Simon seems to be growing into a MLB. Or is he staying at Rover? So, now, Rover for 2019 is looking like Bilal-Simon?-JOK-Marist. I wouldn't be surprised if someone like Derrick Allen, Paul Moala, or Kyle Hamilton switched to Rover.

                                                                                            He looks like someone who could get up to the 230-240 range. No hurry though, I trust the staff to put him in a position to make plays.

                                                                                            Between him Kiser and Osita, we have a lot of athleticism. I think the coaches have recruited the LB position incredibly well the previous classes so it allows them to take some chances on some very athletic guys who don't have top tier rankings.

                                                                                            Excited to watch the position play out int he coming seasons.

                                                                                                While watching his video I kept thinking of James Onwualu.
