Linebacker Dylan Toilolo, who made the Honolulu Star-Advertiser All-State first team as a junior in 2016 at Saint Louis, has transferred to Kapolei.
Hurricanes coach Darren Hernandez said Friday that Toilolo, who is 5-foot-11 and 200 pounds, will play linebacker and strong safety. He joined the team on Thursday.
“Great feet and hips. He can run extremely well and above all is a big time hitter,” Hernandez texted.
Toilolo joins a defense that already has linebacker Kukea Emmsley, who holds nine Division I scholarship offers, and defensive tackle Aaron Faumui, a transfer from the mainland who won the Division II state title as a sophomore at Radford. Faumui holds six offers, including one from Wisconsin.
Another linebacker, Rocky Savea, also holds offers from Texas Tech and Oregon State.
Kapolei is coming off its best season in school history, finishing 10-3 and advancing to the semifinals of the state tournament in the Open Division.
