Hawaii recruit offer spotlight: Eugene (OR) Offensive Lineman Cody Shear

WarriorSportsNetwork spotlights a new recruit that has been offered by Hawaii Head Coach Nick Rolovich's staff every weekday. Today's spotlight features offensive lineman Cody Shear of Oregon.

The Target


Primary Recruiter

Offensive Line Coach Chris Naeole 


Cody Shear was one of the new Hawaii coaching staff's 2017 first offers when they arrived, prior to the barrage of offers sent out over the previous months. In fact, they offered Shear just prior to a family vacation to Hawaii, leading him to take an unofficial visit last December. Hawaii remained his only offer for over a month, but now that total has jumped to 13 already. Arizona is the only Power-5 school to offer so far, though other Power-5 schools are showing interest. 

Shear is a versatile athlete on the offensive line. He could possibly end up at center, guard or even tight end, and he also has long snapping experience to add to his resume. Shear has impressive speed and athleticism for a 6-foot-4 and 270-pound offensive lineman and prides himself on his work ethic. He is a balanced lineman, but leans slightly toward favoring his run blocking due to his aggressiveness on the field.

The Oregon prospect comes from Sheldon High School in Eugene. It is not known as a power high school, though it has sent recruits to the next level, primarily to schools in the Northwest. 


“I thought I might as well send the coaches my film before we go (on vacation to Hawaii),” Shear said. “They called me about a week before we left and they said they liked my film and offered me. It came out of the blue. I had never even gotten a letter from them before. It was pretty exciting and it was crazy.”


The Competition

Offers from Arizona, Akron, Ball State, Idaho, Nevada, Ohio, Buffalo, Central Michigan, UMass, Toledo, Tulane and Montana State. Interest from Oregon, Oregon State, San Diego State, Washington.
