Manaia Perese, a 6-foot-3, 277-poud defensive lineman and a 2013 Mililani graduate, has been offered scholarships to play football at Kansas and Tulsa, according 247sports.com and his high school coach Rod York.

Perese, who also goes by Mana or Mene, played his senior season in high school in 2012 and has been with both Weber State and Snow College since then.

York also said Friday that Trojans senior quarterback McKenzie Milton, who is orally committed to Hawaii, has been offered by Air Force and Navy.


Another Mililani player who is committed to Hawaii, wide receiver Kalakaua Timoteo, recently received offers from two other schools — Northern Arizona of Division I FCS, and Western New Mexico of Division II — to go along with his offer from Washington State, according to York.

Timoteo was named the MVP among wide receivers at The Opening Oakland football camp May 17. He was the only player among seven MVP winners not from California.

    I wonder why UH hasn’t offered Perese?

    I’m surpried only UH and the service academies have offered Milton. That guy is fabulous and will be one the finest QB’s to have ever played in the islands. Gotta be his size. He not 6′ tall. So many colleges ignore any high school QB who is not at least 6′ tall.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if Milton gets offers from big D1 schools later in his senior year. He would fit in a oregon type offense.
