One of the best players in the state of Oregon this is a big and quick offensive lineman. This talented behemoth already has three offers on the table with more definitely on the way
The player in question is offensive tackle Mau Nomani (6-4, 275, 5.4) from Tigard, Ore. Noumani was a first-team all-league selection after only allowing one sack as a junior. He has that bit of nasty in him that his approximately 60 pancake blocks would indicate.
Noumani has three official offers from on the table from BYU, Oregon and Nebraska.
Oregon State might be the next team to offer him and the Beavers are his leader along with the Oregon Ducks.
"I have talked to one of their (Oregon State) recruiters," Nomani said. "We spent a little time talking. I have been a Beaver fan from the start. They would have to be up there."
Nomani's top two schools are Oregon State and Oregon but there is no way he is closing the door on either BYU or Nebraska.
"I think Oregon is great," Nomani said. "They make you feel comfortable."
"(Oregon) Coach (Steve) Greatwood, he comes and talks to you (at the camp) and helps you to understand," Nomani said. "Coach (Neal) Zoumboukos is like coach Greatwood. He also talks to me and makes me understand."
"BYU is really a good school," Nomani said. "I really like BYU."
"I'm looking forward to knowing more what BYU is about," Nomani said. "I have talked to BYU coach Barry Lamb, but "we haven't talked that much," Nomani said. "He is so much like (Oregon) coach Greatwood."
BYU in the end may be the school to beat for Nomani. He is of the LDS faith and will be going on his Mormon mission after one year at the school he attends as a freshman.
Noumani was selected by Rivals.com to the preseason Oregon Top 15 team for the class of 2006 and is considered the state's No. 3 prospect at any position.
