When in doubt and your favorite school is trying to find outstanding linemen. It's a good bet that some lucky coach will be hitting the friendly skies to the island paradise of Hawai'i where amongst the beauty and the salt air, you can usually find linemen.
This year is no different and one the reasons D-I schools will be heading to the Aloha State is offensive guard Kapua Sai (6-6, 310, 5.5) from Honolulu (Hawai'i) Saint Louis.
Sai flew a little bit under the radar in the early going because he miss most of his junior season with an injury, but now back healthy and showing schools what he is capable of doing, he has two offers on the table and he has helped Saint Louis to a perfect 4-0 record.
Since September 1st, Sai has received phone calls from Oregon, Washington, New Mexico, San Diego State, UNLV and Utah. He has also been on the mainland checking out schools.
"I went to the UCLA/UT game on September 1st," Sai said. "I also took unofficial visits to Oregon in May and Washington in June.
"New Mexico, Oregon and Washington are close to offering," Sai said. "Those schools just want to see some senior footage."
"I haven't set any visit dates yet, but I'm planning on setting them up for December after the state playoffs are over," Sai said. "I'm anticipating going to state."
"I'm pretty open and am waiting to see what my options are," Sai said. "I could make my decision in December or soon after."
"Academics will be a big factor in my decision and are first and foremost," Sai said. "I'm going to major in political science. Then I'll look into the football program and the coaching staff."
The scouting report on Sai is he's a hard worker and is an excellent technician. He is working on his improving explosion.
In the weight room Sai's current squat is 455, bench is 315, and his power clean is 225. He has also recorded a 28-inch vertical.
Sai is also solid in the classroom carrying a 3.2 GPA and even though he scored a 1375 SAT, and has already been cleared by the clearing house, he will retake the SAT.
