Hawaii the right fit for Doe

Heading into the 2010 football season, NDSCS WR Cecil Doe (6-3, 210) was expected to build on an outstanding freshman season to be one of the top JUCO receivers in the country. However, due to some nagging injuries, that didn't happen, but his lack of productivity didn't scare away one program which has thoughts of using the talented wideout in many different ways once he arrives next month...

"I committed to Hawaii a few days ago," Doe told JCFootball.com recently. "I visited there over the weekend and I fell in love with it almost from the moment I stepped off the plane.

"It's beautiful there, I liked meeting the coaches and the players and the atmosphere is exactly what I was looking for in a school.

"They all play for each other, not as individuals, so that was a big thing and I like the offense they run."

Speaking of the offense the Warriors run, Doe said the staff made it clear how they want to use his size, speed and skills.

"The coaches want me outside for the most part, but they like to run a lot of motion, so I could be out of the slot as well," Doe said. "They showed me how they used Greg Salas, number one on their team, and they said that is pretty much how I will be used."

As a freshman in 2009, Doe was a big-play man for NDSCS, posting over 30 catches for nearly 700 yards receiving and six touchdowns and the expectations were he would be even better this season. However, some nagging injuries limited him to just six games and he managed only 17receptions for 302 yards and one touchdown this season.

Doe will finish up his AA degree this week and plans to sign with Hawaii on December 15th and will arrive on the Islands early next month in time to play spring football.
