The California Golden Bears continue to stack up on defensive line bodies up front, and they get an additional talent for next year’s class. Meet Siulagisipai Fuimaono, a defensive linemen who joins the 2017 recruiting cycle and will be with the team this fall.
Fuimaono is a late signing for the Bears, but he’s ready to contribute this summer it looks like. Here’s his tape.
Fuimaono hails from American Samoa and prepped in Okinawa. Fuimaono won his team's Defensive MVP as a senior when he recorded 94 tackles, 21.0 tackles for loss, 7.0 sacks and one forced fumble.
Cal has two defensive linemen commits in this class in defensive end Gabe Cherry and junior college prospect Alex Funches. This will help the Bears further bolster their defensive line depth. 2018 is already off to a promising start, with Cal getting commitments for Justin Kakala, Nick Alftin and JH Tevis. Wit
"We are excited about the potential we see in Siulagisipai," Wilcox said. "His film is good, and he is a big, strong athlete that we think will help us on the defensive line. He had a chance to visit Cal this spring, and we knew after meeting him that he would be a terrific fit at Cal both academically and athletically."
"Even being considered to play for Cal has been a blessing for me," said Fuimaono, who claims the American Samoa village of Leone as his hometown. "I'm very excited to start working with the coaches and my new team."
Welcome to Cal Siulagisipai! Go Bears!
