Wow, sounds like a great young man and a very talented player. Love the idea of him at NT. Forget about Mafi, Maldanado is our man!

I have a really good feeling about what this man will accomplish at Cal. I think his story is going to be awesome, and he seems like a really good person as well.

He also fits the mold of Cal recruits during the Wilcox era with high marks for character and intelligence. He'll do well at Cal academically and on the football field.

This is a very nice article. Well done.

Without going too far off topic, what type of player was Mafi vs. Maldanado? Is this simply a matter of one guy being so big that he's projected to be more of an immovable object whereas the other is a more versatile technique/motor guy (I don't mean that in a negative way)?

Very accurate. Mafi does move well for a huge man. I think he will come back fine from his injury.

Both Aaron Maldonado & Cal are fortunate! Aaron is exactly the right combination for Cal: Smart, high character, great skills.

Welcome to Cal, Aaron!

I am taking Mafi's last minute defection personally; I really hope Maldonado becomes a beast at the center of our DLine for years to come!

You know this guy is going to end up with a Cal degree: It's those glasses!

(May he also end up with some all-conference honors, the Axe and a Rose Bowl!)

Well, let's put it this way: Maldonado moves very well and with some guided weight work will stop up the middle just as well as Mafi was projected to do.

A ruptured Achilles, on the other hand, is an iffy proposition. If the tendon was detached completely, it's a year, no matter what some trainer says. And, might never be the same - the stress put on it by that much weight and strength could jeopardize a recurrence.
