Happy about having the All-Poly Camp in Hawaii to provide additional exposure for recruits, VJ Feheko said:
“We’re so far away from the United States, we don’t get a fair look I think. Things like this puts Hawaii on the map. My brothers got to play college football because of these kinds of camps, and I hope they can continue to have them here.” (HSB)
HSB Note: “The 6-foot-1, 215-pound linebacker says he has already been offered scholarships by 16 schools, including California, Colorado, UCLA and Texas Tech — where his brother Sam plays — and plans on narrowing his choices just before the season starts.”
Hoping to get more offers in addition to his offer from UH, Andrew Manley said:
“I still only have one offer, so I’m just trying to get myself out there as much as I can. Hopefully I have a pretty good season and some schools start offering.” (HSB)
HSB Note: “Reigning Star-Bulletin state player of the year Andrew Manley has been to summer camps up and down the West Coast. From Seattle to Los Angeles, Manley has shown his stuff to a variety of schools and has been in contact with many Pac-10 coaches. But so far, his only offer has come from Hawaii. He attended summer camps at Washington and UCLA, but both schools have already secured a 2010 commitment from a quarterback.”
HSB Note: “UH athletic director Jim Donovan said he spoke with football coach Greg McMackin about it, and McMackin convinced him that the home hotel helps the team significantly in organization and preparation.
But is it $130,000 worth of advantage? That’s the early estimate for what it will cost to put up the Warriors on the eves of home games this fall. Sounds like they need to get the Priceline Negotiator involved in the deal.
There may not be a choice as soon as next year. The Pac-10 wants legislation so it can chop some Hotel California out of the expense columns.”
