Another offensive lineman from the Aloha State who is beginning to make a name for himself on the recruiting trail is Chauncy Makainai (6-4, 315, 5.5) from Kailua, Hawai'i.
Makainai has received his first offer from the home state school, the University of Hawai'i. The Warriors aren't the only team showing interest for the rising star from the island of Oahu.
"Oregon, Colorado, Utah, and San Diego State are giving me the most attention," Makainai said. "Utah, San Diego State and Colorado are about visits.
"I'm unsure about taking an official visit to Hawai'i because I have been there before," Makainai said. "I'm not sure about Oregon because we haven't talked about visits."
What is Makainai looking for in a school?
"Mostly I want to get a good degree to fall back on if football doesn't work out," Makainai said. "A good relationship with the coaching staff will also be a consideration and they interact with the players."
The scouting report on Makainai is he has outstanding technique. He won the technique award at Brian Derby's offensive linemen camp, well known camp on the Islands.
Makainai has good leadership skills and his a hard worker, who always does his best. He's a solid character guy who has good attitude.
Kailua is off to a slow 1-4 start and has lost a lot of close games, but he is not hanging his head.
In the weight room he benched 185 pounds, 26 times and he recorded a 29-inch vertical jump.
As a junior, Makainai earned first-team all-league and won the 4A championship in the shot and placed third in the state meet.
