Kahuku’s historic defensive season in 2015 apparently has not gone unnoticed by major Division I college football coaches.
Red Raiders cornerback Kekaula Kaniho and defensive lineman Aliki Vimahi picked up scholarship offers from Colorado on Monday night. Both Kahuku juniors posted the news on their Twitter accounts.
Kaniho, a 6-foot, 170-pound defensive back, scored his first Division I offer while Vimahi, a 6-foot-4, 250-pound defensive end, also holds offers from Brigham Young and Oregon State.
They are two of five starting defensive players for the state champion Red Raiders to have at least one Division I offer. Senior linebacker Hirkley Latu (BYU, Cal, Hawaii, Oregon State, Utah, Utah State, Washington State), senior defensive back Keala Santiago (Hawaii, Army, Colorado, Navy, UNLV) and senior defensive lineman Bradlee Anae (BYU) have yet to make their college choices known.
