This year the eDuck recruiting list includes quite a few Hawaiian players who have Oregon on their short list. Four are expected to be in attendance for the OSU game on December 1st. PrepStar All-American Donny Mateaki is probably the biggest name, he is a 6'-5", 260, 4.8 forty, defensive lineman who had 100 tackles and 20 sacks as a junior and he is considered one of the top two prospects from the state of Hawaii. The three other players expected to visit are from the same Kamehameha high school. Brandon Ala is a 6'-3", 225, 4.56 linebacker who was All-State as a junior. Enoka Lucas is a "diamond in the rough" 6'-4" offensive lineman whose hard work has helped him bulk his frame up to 285 pounds. The last of the trio is hard charging PrepStar All-Region defensive lineman Albert Ma'afala. In a recent interview, Albert said he has narrowed his choices to either Oregon or Washington. One way or another, it looks like the Ducks have renewed their efforts to recruit Hawaii. One wonders, are the coaches thinking package deal?
Reestablishing the Hawaii Pipeline
The distance from Eugene to the Islands has made recruiting difficult, other than phone calls and mail in recent years, but last year the situation changed when Steve Greatwood was assigned to the Hawaii area. In fact, Greatwood's chronicled journey to Somoa during the battle to sign JC standout Junior Siavii showed a new commitment to recruiting the distant island areas.
