His other brother, Francisco Mauigoa, is a linebacker at Washington State and was a three-star recruit in the 2021 class. Mauigoa plans on majoring in math in college.

Reminds Us Of
Francis Mauigoa's nimble athleticism and physical play style reminds us of Penei Sewell. Both are strong functional movers despite their weights at over 320 pounds. They excel as run blockers while also having the feet and coordination to succeed in pass protection as offensive tackles. Mauigoa tests as a better athlete than Sewell at the same stage.
