Hawaii's top college football prospects

It might be the so-called "off" or "sandwich" years, like this one, which, despite an absence of heralded four-star prospects or can't-miss All-Americans like Manti Te'o, still could produce 12-18 major college scholarship recipients, pending final academic results.

"That's a lot of kids," said Kapolei High coach Darren Hernandez, who figures to have three of them — defensive tackle Kalani Vakameilalo (Oregon State), defensive end Kingston Fernandez (Washington State) and offensive tackle Micah Kapoi (Wisconsin) —signing Wednesday on National Letter of Intent Day.

Vakameilalo, a 6-foot-4, 300-pounder, "looks like he might be the most college-ready of the bunch," said a coach who regularly recruits Hawaii.

UH said it snared six of the seven local players it has targeted, apparently missing out on only Lamone Williams, a Kahuku defensive end bound for Oregon State.
