No idea if Mawae would make a good OL coach. My guess is he would if his heart was in it (and I don't think he would take the job if it wasn't). He played every OL position at LSU not just C.
But as for recruits recognizing him, I don't envision the recruiting process being comprised of single visit. If recruits were unaware on his first visit, I don't think it would be too long before they realize he's not only had a good NFL career but is one of the all-time great NFL OL.
Just a question, are there any other former NFL OL of his stature in coaching?
