Kapolei offensive lineman Micah Kapoi has committed to play football for the University of Wisconsin.

Hurricanes coach Darren Hernandez confirmed the announcement by phone on Sunday night.

“Micah committed to play center/guard for the Wisconsin Badgers of the Big Ten. He is looking to major in business and was very impressed by their business school,” Hernandez wrote on his Facebook page.

Kapoi, a 6-foot-4, 290-pound senior, also plays basketball.

    Did you see this on some other forum? He was at UH football team last time I checked, he was sitting out 1 year, but got cut and now he is heading to Wisconsin Badgers uniform? 6-4 290 ibs. This is big. But for Wisconsin it is small. Also I do not see any financial help in sight for Kapoi. Is this story true? On one of the forum he was listed as a recruit, but had to sit out one year. It’s a long way from Hawai’i. Are you sure he is capable of making the team and living independently there? A lot of issues come to mind when I think of him playing for Wisconsin. I am not sure how this could be so.

    that’s good for kapoi. I believe he had earlier committed to UH, but I can see him de-committing and going to Wisconsin with the way UH’s program is going. I used to be a supporter of UH football, but now that “Chow fun” is here I hope ALL the local players go away……!!!!

    UH is bypassing almost an entire crop of local talent in favor of JUCO players. He expects different results next year; using the same schemes and coaches.
