Punahou quarterback Hugh Brady announced on social media Wednesday evening that he has received a scholarship offer from Hawaii.

The 6-foot-3, 200-pound junior threw for 2,309 yards and 26 touchdowns with nine interceptions and ran for two scores in nine-plus games for the Buffanblu this season in his first year as the starter.

He was knocked out of Punahou’s season-ending loss to Saint Louis on the first offensive play of the game.

Brady’s best game was when he threw for 378 yards and four touchdowns with no interceptions in a 43-21 win over eventual OIA champion Mililani, which went on to play in the Open Division state final against the Crusaders.

Hawaii is the first school to offer Brady, who is one of only two junior quarterbacks (Saint Louis’ Jayden de Laura) in the state with at least one D-I offer.

He is the fourth Punahou player to earn a scholarship offer (OL Solatoa Moeai, DB Alaka’i Gilman, WR Koa Eldredge).
