    Hey Nick, what happened to the older Brother Luke Kaumatule who just finished his eligibility at Stanford? I never saw him play while there. Anyways, no way should a freshman be offered. Not offer until the summer before their senior year. I think the father is Soakai Soaki, former Radford OIA All-Star center.

    My understanding is that Luke has one year of eligibility remaining and will play while persuing his Masters at Stanford. He’s been hurt a lot but appears to have made good use of his scholarship.

    Luke is a great kid. I know the family and all of the boys are so respectful. They tried Luke at TE.
