Nick Rolovich and Washington State offered Aquinas High School dual athlete Francisco Mauigoa over the weekend making him the third Mauigoa brother to be offered by the Cougs in the last five years. Francisco is the brother of former Cougar offensive lineman Frederick as well as Francis who is a four star offensive tackle that was offered back in January.
Francisco is rated as a three-star outside linebacker and doubles as a quarterback according to 247Sports. He is a part of the 2021 graduating class and is the 93rd ranked OLB in the nation. Standing at 6-foot-3, 205-pounds, he helped lead Aquinas to a 13-3 record and an appearance in the CIF Division 2-AA Championship. He was forced to miss five games due to transferring rules so he only appeared in 10 games.
He tallied 1,113 yards on his 79 of 135 passing attempts and had 10 touchdowns to 5 interceptions. He added another 4 touchdowns and 475 yards on the ground as the quarterback. On defense, he had 46 total tackles including 5 for a loss and one interception.
This is his first power 5 offer and his 10th offer overall. He holds offers from Army, Hawaii, Idaho, San Jose State, Utah State and a few others.
Francis, who is a part of the graduating class of 2023, is ranked the number one offensive tackle for the 2023 class and ranked fourth overall.
Frederick graduated last year after being a four year letter winner and appearing in 39 consecutive games as the center for the Cougs. He had brief stints with the Carolina Panthers and the Cincinnati Bengals this summer.
... the Cougars don’t have a returning starter at quarterback, and on the heels of Anthony Gordon’s departure, will be one of five Pac-12 schools ushering in a new signal-caller this season. But, even with nearly half the league bringing in new faces, WSU is confronted with an especially unconventional situation.
In trying to remain safe amid a global pandemic, Washington State football players can’t hope for the level of insularity that some professional athletes have experienced. Pullman is no NBA bubble. But they can place a personal priority on minimizing risk, according to Cougars offensive lineman Liam Ryan.
