Notes:
Despite having surgery on both his thumb and wrist prior to 2008 spring practice, Maiava still managed to put together a season in which he placed third on the Trojans with 66 tackles and appeared in all 13 games for the program...Was a key backup at linebacker for USC as a junior in 2007, appearing in every game for the team and coming up with 44 tackles a year after being named the USC Co-Special Teams Player of the Year for the second straight season...Maiava flew under the radar as opponents focused on morerecognizable names at the linebacker position for the Trojans, which could both help and hinder his possible placement in the draft...Maiava comes from an athletic family which includes former Miami-Florida player Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.
