(Update: Oregon State offered Kapoi a scholarship on Thursday. He now has 10 offers.)
Southern Utah and Washington State are the most recent schools to come chasing junior La‘akea Kapoi.
The 6-foot-4, 295-pound offensive lineman from Saint Louis received the offer from SUU on Tuesday and the Wazzu offer on Wednesday.
SUU is where former former Crusader Anthony Arceneaux is an assistant coach. The Thunderbirds play in the Big Sky Conference.
“Coach Arceneaux is a cool coach and just him being a graduate from Saint Louis School just made the conversation a lot comfortable for me,” Kapoi said on Wednesday. “The brotherhood is real!”
Washington State, where former Hawaii coach Nick Rolovich resides, is the second Pac-12 offer for Kapoi.
“I can see myself playing at Washington State because I made a lot of great connections with the majority of the coaches on that staff and I like how they have the same kind of offensive set-up as Saint Louis,” he added. “Overall, great conversations with both coaches.”
Kapoi now has nine scholarship offers on the table. He has a 3.5 grade-point average.
“Shout out to my offensive line boys, Coach Rob (Crowell), Coach (James) Hall, Coach (Brian) Derby, Coach Faipea Ava,” he said. “And shout out to my large family.”
