Well, that didn’t take very long.

Former Star-Advetiser All-State football player Alohi Gilman of Kahuku made a visit to Notre Dame over the weekend. He had recently announced plans to transfer out of the US Naval Academy, where he had a strong freshman season.

Gilman is the latest Hawaii product to transfer schools this offseason. Moanalua alum and defensive tackle Scott Pagano transferred to Oregon after winning the national championship at Clemson and Farrington alum Breiden Fehoko, also a defensive tackle, transferred from Texas Tech to LSU.

Gilman was an honorable mention All-AAC selection as a freshman and was the ECAC rookie of the year. He started 12 of the 14 games he played in and was second on the team with 76 tackles and five pass breakups. He also had two fumbles recoveries and one forced fumble.

    I heard One of the best softball pitchers to ever come out of Hawaii, and NCAA standout/Fresno State Ace Kamalani Dung is transfferring too. She was his classmate until he transferred. She hasn’t confirmed yet, or posted a public statement, but I’ve heard through the grape vine.

    David, how did Kamalani Dung ever end up at Fresno? Didn’t UH recruit her? The Pac-12? I seen her pitch against Michigan in the NCAA softball regionals. Fresno started her 3 straight games.

    Mahatama, Fresno was one of the power house schools in the history of softball. I guess she went there for the nation leading softball facilities and fan attendance or something. It’s a good place for athletics from what I’ve heard.
