    This is good news. I wonder how Marsh and Epenesa make Heimuli feel, but I know Neuheisel and Chow have both been working hard on Ricky. Keep it up!

    heimuli wouldnt be afraid of sealli taking pt from him

  • Fan4Life

    How many DTs want to play 70 snaps a game? PT isn’t even an issue.

    damn, does anything make you guys/girls happy??? geezzz lets be happy we got the best player in Hawaii.

  • MaltBaa

    Awesome! This guy is a stud, i’ve heard many great things.

    As great as Suh was this year, he didnt get his first start until his RS Soph year. And UCLA doesn’t play the cupcakes Nebraska does. Fla Atlantic, Arkansas State, Louisana Lafayette were on last year’s schedule.

    These kids won’t be playing against kids half their size anymore. They’ll be playing against players who weigh just as much and are just as strong.

    They’ll be begging to get off the field just to get a rest.

    Actually, Epenesa is rated as the 14th best player in Hawaii.

    Welcome to the Bruin Family, Sealli!

    great pick up. not many tough 300 DL out there. in some games, Def has to rotate DL frequently especially late in games, having depth is a huge plus.

    the Big Mo’ continues…

    Off topic, but I am watching the 05 Bruins vs SDSU on ESPN Classic. It’s been soooo long since I’ve seen a dominating Bruin offense against anybody :(

    hey jon we gonna have a chat today?

    I think I’ve read that Heimuli will take a mission after his freshman year. It could work well if Heimuli and Marsh play as true freshmen while Epenesa redshirts. Epenesa could step up as a redshirt freshman when Heimuli takes his mission.

    Great news! The Bruins become more solid each year.
