Spoke to Diamond Bar coach Ryan Maine this morning and he said that QB Henry Omana Jr. is nearing his scholarship offer after a spring that’s produced heavy interest from college recruiters.
New Pac-10 member Colorado looks likely to offer Omana, as does Oregon St. Once that happens, Maine expects several more schools that are interested to step up to the plate.
Omana, who is 6-3, 210 lbs., passed for 1,298 yards and 13 touchdowns last season while splitting time with Andrew Cameron. Omana is currently a standout pitcher on the Brahmas baseball team.
Omana’s father Henry Sr. was a star football/baseball player at El Monte and played in college at Utah St.
Aram’s take: Are you starting to see why I’m high on D-Bar’s chances of improving on last year’s 6-4 record? With Omana back and other weapons like receiver George Katrib and Jamaal Clayton, there hasn’t been this much excitement about Brahama football since … since … I don’t know, the Roche Era!
Enjoy his reel …
