Brandon’s thoughts: Siaumau is one of the most underrated players in Arizona’s class. This is an absolute steal for the ‘Cats. He has grown in size (in a good way) and can bounce all around the field. He is coming in as a Stud backer but I can see him also playing Will backer or, maybe, even one of the safety positions.

Gabe mentioned it on Twitter and I agree with him: a couple of years from now people will wonder why the whole Pac-12 didn’t offer Siaumau. He will have a great career in Tucson.

Another note, he will be playing in the Polynesian Bowl on Jan. 19.

Gabe’s Thoughts: I think he’s going to be one of Arizona’s most productive recruits of this class. An absolute steal from the staff. Great size and speed which gives him a lot of versatility. He could play stud, weak-side, defensive end, spur or bandit in position depending on how he shaped his body.
