California Top 25 O-Line Prospects

According to CalHisports Mark Tennis

1. Damien Mama (St. John Bosco, Bellflower) 6-5, 370
Most recruiting services are in agreement that he is the No. 1 offensive lineman in the state. Mama holds numerous offers, including ones from USC, Alabama, Notre Dame and Washington. He was selected to Nike’s The Opening and he already has been named to the 2014 Under Armour All-American Game. If you are into out-dated movie references, here’s one Mama that would be impossible to throw from a train.
3. Toa Lobendahn (La Habra) 6-3, 293
Not only did he get selected for Nike’s The Opening but he stood out and while there as he was named to the All-Opening team after earlier in the summer committing to USC. He played last season at Lakewood and was going to transfer to St. John Bosco of Bellflower, but with issues surrounding early graduation had him end up at La Habra this coming season. Don’t know how much La Habra coach Frank Mazzotta likes his top linemen hitting each other, but Lobendahn will be teaming up with state top five defensive lineman Greg Gaines with the Highlanders.
4. Viane Talamaivao (Centennial, Corona) 6-3, 310
Here’s yet another who shined at Nike’s The Opening after earlier in the off-season giving his commitment to Alabama in late May. Led by his blocking up front, the Huskies passed for over 4,400 yards and rushed for over 4,100 yards last season on their way to the CIF Open Division Bowl Game.
5. Kammy Delp (Diamond Ranch, Pomona) 6-4, 305
Originally planning to name his top five schools while at Nike’s The Opening, he changed his mind to take more time. And why not? His offers are in the double digits, including ones from Arizona, Boise State and Oregon State. Playing every position on the offensive line last season but center, Delp also played on defense and recorded 75 tackles and seven sacks.

Some others we like who can make a move in future updates to this list:
•David Falefitu (Twentynine Palms)
•Sammy Lauaki (Cathedral, Los Angeles)
