Kahuku freshman quarterback Sol-Jay Maiava tweeted Wednesday night that he has received a scholarship offer from Hawaii.

Maiava, a 6-foot-1 dual threat, led Kahuku to a second consecutive OIA title and a berth in the Open Division final of the state tournament before losing to Saint Louis.

He completed 45 percent (50-for-11) of his passes for 839 yards and eight touchdowns with three interceptions in his first year guiding the run-first offense of the Red Raiders. He also rushed for 342 yards and five touchdowns.

Maiava made national headlines when he received a scholarship offer from Michigan before taking a snap at the high school level. Since then he has also picked up offers from Fresno State and Utah.

    Congrats, Sol-Jay! Got to see him up in Vegas a few weeks ago competing with Team Hukilau Cafe. He had a real solid tournament and Coach Darren Johnson does a great job with him. Good, humble young man who is well deserving!

    Happy for Soljay and UH. He is an amazing young man off the field and on the field. Wish the best for him. I wonder however, if the Michigan and Fresno State offer will stand based on Tony Tuioti leaving. Also, did he get really get a Utah offer?

    He will be excellent at the next level and at most schools. He is a competitor. And like all of them being offered young, need to work….!
