        Johnny Maea is a return missionary, and probably older than Braeden Daniels. Daniels played in two games last year and was able to Redshirt. Ford is a sophomore, Umana a Junior and Paulo the lone senior, so it is a very young line.
        Current starters per K-Whitt:
        LT Darrin Paulo 6’5 315 lbs Sr
        LG Johnny Maea 6‘4 302 lbs Fr
        C Orlando Umana 6’4” 340 lbs JR
        RG Braeden Daniels 6’4 300 lbs Fr
        RG Nick Ford 6’5 324 lbs So

        Got a kick out of Nick Ford bio, a pretty well rounded kid. “PERSONAL: Enjoys piano, guitar, science, surfing and horseback riding … heritage includes black Portuguese and native American … son of Michael and Maria Ford … father played wide receiver for California from 1986-89 … two brothers and one sister … older brother’s heart condition inspired him to take up football … psychology major … full name is Nicolas Ford.”

        This really says alot about Johnny Maea.  He was locked in a duel with Paul Toala, who has PAC experience.  I hope Toala takes the challenge and becomes one of the Top 8.

        So if and when Bam gets up and running, who would he repalce?  I’m thinking Ford slides inside and it would be Daniels or Maea that get bumped.  Leaving Paulo and Bam at the tackles.
