Tutulupeatau Mataele, DT, Mt. San Antonio College
"Deuce" Mataele signed with the Broncos on the earliest JC signing day (which is a great thing, because Justin Taimatuia has yet to sign, nor has Mercy Maston). Mataele helped the Mt. SAC squad to an 11-1 season. Final stats: 42 tackles (14.5 for loss), 10.5 sacks, 3 forced fumbles.
Jake Roh, WR/OLB, Chaparral High School (Scottsdale, AZ)
Roh pulled announced yesterday that he'd chosen the Broncos over Iowa...and it looks like the talented ATH will be playing TE for the Broncos...but we'll just see if that sticks or not. Roh's team went 8-4 this year and ultimately fell in the second round of the state playoffs. His final stats: 805 receiving yards, 13 TDs. 72 tackles, 4 sacks, 4 INTs, 12 PBUs and a forced fumble.
That's it for this week. If you have any stats, info, or otherwise to report, I would greatly appreciate it. Just send HERE.
