The service academies have some company in recruiting Kamehameha senior defensive tackle Nakoa Pauole.

Fresno State, which has been busy in the islands this week offering Saint Louis DL Faatui Tuitele and Kahuku DE Samson Reed, have extended an offer to the 6-foot-2, 270-pound Pauole.

Pauole announced the offer on Twitter.



Before the Bulldogs, Pauole had received scholarship offers from Army, Navy and Air Force.

The Bulldogs’ increased recruiting presence in the islands is due to the recent hire of former Hawaii football player Tony Tuioti as defensive line coach. New Bulldogs head coach Jeff Tedford lured Tuioti away from Michigan, where he was the director of player personnel.


Tuioti also served as head coach at Kalaheo in 2003 and 2004 and went 7-10 in his two seasons.
