Hawaii's top football prospects

Paul Honda lists Hawaii's top prospects based on college potential.

Here's the University of Hawaii potential signees:

John Wa'a, Kahuku, 6-3, 281 — Versatile in Kahuku's mix of power, stretch and toss sweep plays. A quiet, effective leader. Committed early to UH and never wavered. (10)

Aofaga Wily, Kahuku, 5-10, 212 — The Star-Advertiser All-State offensive player of the year rushed for 1,744 yards and 27 touchdowns for the state champion Red Raiders. Has power, finesse and excellent hands, but is also being looked at as a linebacker, his position as a JV player. (7) [commits to Hawaii]

Athlete Keelan Ewaliko, Baldwin, 6-0, 175 — An early-season rib injury curbed his statistical contributions, but he is among the most promising of the versatile seniors in this class. Ewaliko's speed and escapability were spectacular as a quarterback. At the next level, he could — and probably will, per UH coach Norm Chow — play multiple positions on offense, defense and special teams. (15)

Kennedy Tulimasealii, Waianae, 6-1, 286 — Tremendous explosion, a pocket wrecker even against double-team blocks. He finished a close second in the voting for all-state defensive player of the year. UH has kept tabs on Tulimasealii, but now that he's on the verge of academic qualification, other schools are jumping on the bandwagon. (2)

Ualesi Sale, Aiea, 6-3, 225 — Opposing coaches raved about Sale's playmaking ability. (11)

Rashaan Falemalu, Kahuku, 6-1, 192 — His rangy play, good closing speed and excellent anticipation made him perfect to play outside 'backer for Kahuku's lockdown unit.

(In parentheses are the Star Advertiser's rankings of the top 15 players from Hawaii.  Isaac Savaiinaea is the no. 1 ranked player from Hawaii. He finally decided on UCLA.)
