The Hawaii Top 25 in 2015 is stacked with talent linemen. Hawaii's class of 2015 certainly supports the Islands' reputation for producing some of the nation's best offensive and defensive linemen.
Breaking Down The Top 10
1) Breiden Fehoko, DT, Farrington
Fehoko would test well at the NFL combine today. At the high school level, he is a man among boys. Fehoko has incredible strength and is an explosive athlete. He has all the tools necessary to become a dominant defensive tackle at Texas Tech.
2) Canton Kaumatule, DE, Punahou
Kaumatule is an impact player. He is a disruptive force on the defensive line and he has the perfect frame to dominate at the next level. Few prospects in the class of 2015 have a higher ceiling than the Punahou defensive end.
3) Fred Ulu-Perry, C, St. Louis
Ulu-Perry is a pitbull in the trenches. He is a bit undersized, but he makes up for that with brute strength and sound fundamentals. Ulu-Perry was a great pick-up for UCLA earlier this summer.
4) Semisi Uluave, OG, Punahou
Uluave is a versatile offensive linemen. He could potentially play four different positions at a high level in college. Uluave is smart, tough, and as strong as an ox.
5) Dylan Kane, S, Kamehameha
Kane is a defensive back built and engineered to play football in today's game. Kane's size is what jumps out at most people and he pairs that with the quickness and speed of a cornerback. When you fuse that size and speed you can see why the Oregon Ducks are excited about him (think Seattle Seawhawks).
6) Rex Manu, DT, Mililani
Manu is the type of guy that requires two blockers or he is going to ruin your play five yards in the backfield. Manu is an offensive coordinator's nightmare in Hawaii right now, and that will translate for Stanford as well. Manu has a motor that never lets up and has a good blend of strength and quickness.
7) Mika Tafua, DE, Kamehameha
Tafua has a lot of upside. He played through a serious injury as a junior and still dominated his competition. Tafau has a chance to climb the rankings both in Hawaii and nationally now that he is healthy.
8) Tuli Wily-Matagi, DE, Kahuku
Wily-Matagi has a lot of potential at the next level. The Kahuku quarterback could end up playing on either side of the football for Utah. Wily-Matagi has a good frame and is one of the best all-around athletes in Hawaii right now.
9) Salanoa Wily, DT, Kahuku
Wily isn't a prototypical defensive tackle. He lacks the ideal size most coaches want but still makes it work. The converted running back and rugby standout uses his quickness and aggressiveness to blow by bigger and slower interior linemen. The Hawaii commit plays like his hair is on fire.
10) Solomon Matautia, OLB, Campbell
Matautia does a little bit of everything for Campbell. He has great ball skills and good length. He should grow into an outside linebacker for Oregon State and could be a major steal for the Beavers.
