Could Grant senior football foursome wind up at the same college?

By Bill Paterson

It's just in the kidding stage.

But the Grant super senior foursome of Vei Moala, Darryl Paulo, Puka Lopa and James Sample haven't ruled out pulling a LeBron James, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade.

The three NBA superstars worked it out so they all could play together for the Miami Heat this season.

"We've discussed that among ourselves, but really nothing serious," Paulo said. "It would be nice to go to college with at least one of my teammates."

With all four Pacers so highly recruited - they have more than 60 offers among them - the thought of staying together in college isn't that farfetched.

Washington State and San Diego State are the only two schools so far to make offers to all four; Arizona, Arizona State and Washington have made offers to all but Paulo.

But since none plan to commit early, they expect more offers to come their way.

One thing that wouldn't surprise coach Mike Alberghini is that the four, along with highly recruited junior Shaq Thompson (Cal and UNLV already have verbally offered), all wind up in the Pac-10.

"It isn't often you have five kids who have size and talent with grades," Alberghini said.
