The Warrior Beat

(2014) Class standing

February 2nd, 2014

Barring any late changes — and USC is pressing Punahou quarterback Larry "Tui" Tuileta to join as a "preferred walk-on" — this is the Rainbow Warriors' tentative 2014 recruiting class:


• Jeremy Castro, linebacker, UCLA


• Tavita "Tui" Eli, offensive lineman, Kealakehe High

• Marquis Fairchild, defensive end/linebacker, Chaminade Madonna Prep (Florida)

• Cesar Fermin, cornerback, Moorpark College

• Kaau Gifford, defensive tackle, Kamehameha Schools

• Jerrell Jackson, cornerback, Haynesville High (Louisiana)

• Darian Josey, wide receiver/cornerback, Boynton Beach High (Florida)

• Daniel Lewis, safety/running back, New Iberia High (Louisiana)

• Malachi Mageo, linebacker, Junipero Serra High (California)

• Dany Mulanga, safety, Trinity High (Texas)

• Nick Nelson, cornerback, Suitland High (Maryland)

• Simon Poti, linebacker, Fullerton College (California)

• D.J. Riggins, running back, Oak Christian High (California)

• Jalen Rogers, cornerback, Mesa College (Arizona)

• Luke Shawley, defensive end, San Diego Mesa College

• Devan Stubblefield, wide receiver, Saint Louis School

• Jahlani Tavai, rush end, Mira Costa High

• Dakota Torres, tight end/linebacker/long-snapper, Punahou School

• Larry "Tui" Tuileta, quarterback, Punahou School

• Tui Unga, linebacker, Cucamonga High (California)

Grayshirts (will join in January 2015):

• Dayton Furuta, running back/receiver/defensive back, Mililani High

• Donald Lambert, wide receiver, Moanalua High

• Manly Williams, safety, Farrington High

Missions (will join in June 2016)

• Mack Richards, wide receiver, Alta High (Utah)


• Slotback Quinton Pedroza, who redshirted in 2013 after transferring from Utah, will count retroactively as a 2013 initial recruit.

• Defensive tackle Kory Rasmussen, who also redshirted after transferring from Colorado, is not on scholarship. When he receives a scholarship, he would count as a 2014 initial recruit.

• A defensive back who previously committed to UH did not project to meet the requirements to play in 2014.

• If Tuileta decides to join USC as a walk-on, the Warriors will bring in another  quarterback. They have three who have shown strong interest — two from Division I schools, one from a junior college.
