One of San Diego County's most consistent programs sending prospects to the D-I level over the last decade has been Oceanside, Calif. They have had recent success across the table sending linemen, wide receivers, and quarterbacks to the D-I level.
Once again Oceanside already has three prospects with D-I offers so the trend of sending their players to the next level is lock to continue.
Defensive tackle/offensive lineman Thomas Molesi (6-2, 270, 4.9) has multiple offers.

Oceanside head coach John Carroll told Rivals.com that his talented defensive tackle has several offers. Carroll confirmed offers from Texas A&M, Oregon State, San Diego State, UNLV and UTEP. He said that Molesi had even more scholie opportunities, but he wasn't sure of who.
One of the toughest positions to recruit for a D-I school is defensive tackle. So when you can play the game with the tenacity and skill that Molesi does, then you are going to be a highly recruited player.
Molesi earned first-team San Diego Section all-CIF as a junior after accounting for 70 tackles, six sacks, two fumble recoveries and one interception.
Molesi's performance was one of the reasons that Oceanside won their fifth straight Division II San Diego Section CIF championship.
Already Molesi is one of southern California's most sought after defensive tackle prospects and his stock is only going to go higher.
Carroll has a pretty good idea why.
"Thomas has all the tools necessary that D-I schools look for," Carroll said. "He's very athletic, strong and has non-stop motor."
In the weight room, Molesi can rep 185-pounds on the bench over 20 times.
Oceanside high school has been unbeaten in their last 25 games and finished 12-0-1 in 2008.
