It has been more than a year now since June Jones left Hawaii for SMU, but that will not stop him from trying to snatch up the best recruits from the island state. Last week BigPurpleNation.com learned that Waialua (HI) defensive end Graham Rowley has an offer from the Mustangs. He also holds offers from Stanford and Hawaii, along with getting interest from BYU, Oregon, UCLA, and Washington.

"I know they are a great school academically. June Jones is there and that is interesting to me," said Rowley. "Otherwise I don't know much about their football program."

A 6-foot-3, 250-pound defensive end, Rowley currently runs a 4.9 forty and was recently named as the No. 32 prospect, regardless of position, in the initial Scout.com Northwest Fab 50.

"I really want to go to a school that will let me serve my Mormon mission and that has great academics," said Rowley. "I would like to major in something like engineering."

Playing Division II in Hawaii, Waialua High & Intermediate School finished the year 2-7, struggling down the stretch losing their last six games. Rowley made a huge impact on the defense recording 35 tackles, 10 sacks, and 4 forced fumbles.

"We should be a lot better this year. We only had two seniors on the defense last year so we will be strong on defense," said Rowley. "As the offense, we only lost two guys, so we should be pretty good. Last year we had just a sophomore quarterback so he will be back."

Rowley would like to work on his strength this summer and will be attending the BYU camp and the All-Poly camp in Utah. He is unsure if he will go to any other camps this summer.

Currently Rowley has a 3.8 GPA and is awaiting SAT scores from a test he took in January.
