The eight-time and defending HHSAA state football champion Kahuku Red Raiders might look a little different on offense the next few years.
Freshman quarterback Sol-Jay Maiava, who will compete for the starting job this season, is so talented that he received his first Division I scholarship offer on Tuesday from Michigan and head coach Jim Harbaugh.
Harbaugh, who was in town for his ‘Summer Swarm’ camp over the weekend, didn’t leave without serving up a huge offer for the Kahuku quarterback, who has the entire North Shore excited for what could be a new-look Kahuku offense.
Maiava tweeted the news late last night.

Here’s a video on YouTube of Maiava from the JPS state title game as an eighth-grader. He is currently listed at 6-foot-1 and 170 pounds.
Head coach Vavae Tata said in Hawaii Prep World’s “SPRING-ing into football” series that Kahuku will remain smashmouth on offense, but it’s clear already that the Red Raiders have a potentially great player at quarterback to groom over the next four years.
