Kapolei offensive lineman Toleafoa “Sean” Auwae received two scholarship offers this week, according to the Pacific Islands Athletic Alliance’s Facebook page.
The offers came from Texas Tech and Washington State. The 6-foot-4, 300-pounder, who will be a senior for the Hurricanes this fall, was previously offered by Idaho State.
On his PIAA recruiting profile, ScoutFootball’s Doug Kimmel gives his thoughts on Auwae:
“Auwae is a mauler for Kapolei. He has a big frame, quick feet, and plays with the right amount of nastiness. Auwae was one of the best interior linemen at the All Poly Camp in Utah (last) summer, holding his own against some of the best 2015 prospects.”
Auwae played guard and center last season under head coach Darren Hernandez and can also play tackle.
He is the younger brother of Viliamu Auwae, the 6-foot-5 offensive tackle who finished his senior season at Kapolei last fall and signed his letter of intent to play for Utah State. Boise State, BYU, Nevada and Texas Tech also recruited Viliamu.
