There is nothing concrete yet in Carter Kamana’s future.
But it’s beginning to crystallize bit by bit. The 6-foot-3, 180-pound junior has been contacted by a number of Mountain West Conference football programs. On Tuesday, a Pac-12 Conference recruiter came calling on the ‘Iolani campus.
Kamana, who had 85 receptions for 959 yards and eight TDs last season, was busy in class and didn’t meet with the coach. There are plans to connect later, however.
“I don’t have any offers. Just some interest from some people,” he said. “But it feels pretty good. Kind of like, I was out of it during volleyball season, but now that it’s over, it’s pretty cool.”
Kamana was also a key contributor to ‘Iolani’s basketball and volleyball teams.
“Football’s the main one. Volleyball and basketball are just for fun,” he added.
Kamana will stay busy when the school year concludes shortly.
“I’m planning on going up in June to some camps in California. Fresno State, San Jose State. There’s one in Sacramento. One at UC Davis,” he said.
In between all the sports and practices, the workouts and heavy load of academics, Kamana and returning Raiders quarterback Jonah Chong have improved their own connection.
“It’ll be a solid year for him, his second year, getting stronger. I’ve been working with him a lot, running my routes,” Kamana said.
Chong passed for 2,162 yards and 21 TDs last fall.
