2005 Focus: Kaleo Kina

Kaleo Kina, a junior shooting guard from Arizona, is an interesting prospect. A tough competitor, and solid defender, he's also doing extremely well academically...

Kaleo Kina, 6-2 JR SG Phoenix (Ariz.) Trevor Browne, is a hard-working, tough wing who also excels in the classroom. With a 4.1 GPA, Kina should have plenty of options when it comes to choosing a school.

We spoke with Kina recently and asked about the schools that have expressed interest in him.

"San Diego, Stanford, Pepperdine, Oregon State, Northern Arizona, Texas-San Antonio and some others," said Kina.

When asked if any schools stand out from the pack, Kina replied, "I like San Diego and Stanford right now."

Kina said he doesn't anticipate making a choice in the near future. "Not until after the summer," said Kina. "I'll wait until the beginning of my senior year."
