By Hawaii Prep World on March 26, 2020

Kahanu Kia feels grateful, but he won’t lie, either. UNLV’s offer on Wednesday made it a well of mixed emotions during this COVID-19 lockdown. The Punahou junior has eight FBS scholarship offers, as well as two Ivy League schools, Dartmouth and Princeton.

This coronavirus thing has messed up a lot of […]
