Not all of the news has been bad for St. Francis offensive lineman Fa’aope Laloulu.

A day after finding out his Saints would forfeit all of their wins and be unable to compete in the Division II state tournament, the highly-touted 6-foot-7, 340-pound offensive tackle received a scholarship offer from Hawaii.

UH outside linebackers and nickelbacks coach Jacob Yoro extended the offer this morning.

Hawaii hosts Nevada tonight at Aloha Stadium.

Laloulu, a junior, now has six scholarship offers, trailing only Saint Louis linebacker Jordan Botelho among the class of 2020 in Hawaii.

Arizona, Brigham Young, Oregon, San Diego State and Southern California are Laloulu’s other offers.

Here’s video of Laloulu taken by Paul Honda earlier this year.

    Is it me imagining or is it always seem like UH is a day late and dollar short on offerings to the local kids? Shouldn’t UH be the first ones to offer our local kids before the mainland schools? UH should know them better than the mainland schools.

    What would be worse is if UH don’t understand or know the value of our kids and are awaiting to see what the big mainland schools are doing first.
