Irish Illustrated and 247Sports have learned that defensive line coach Mike Elston checked in on some of the best players in Hawaii over the past few days.
The Fighting Irish assistant coach made the long trip from South Bend to Hawaii to attend the funeral of former Notre Dame defensive lineman Kona Schwenke, who passed away suddenly in his sleep on Sunday, Apr. 22. While in the area, and following a great deal of time with the friends and family of his former player, Elston hit the road to do some recruiting.
We’re told he stopped by Kahuku (Hawaii) high school to see four-star offensive tackle Enokk Vimahi. The 6-5, 290-pounder from the class of 2019 is a top target for Notre Dame this cycle and one the Irish would love to at least get on campus prior to him making a commitment anywhere. Notre Dame, BYU, Cal, Florida, Nebraska, Oregon, UCLA, USC and many others have offered the Top100 standout. It won’t be easy for the Fighting Irish to pull the off, but Notre Dame is giving its best shot for the nation’s No. 13 offensive tackle.
Another target at Kahuku that Notre Dame is keeping tabs on is three-star linebacker Miki Ah You. The 6-1, 220-pounder holds offers from Washington, Arizona State, BYU, Ole Miss and a few others. Notre Dame hasn’t offered at this time.
Notre Dame is also keeping an eye on three-star linebacker Tausili Fiatoa, a 6-2, 195-pounder from the 2019 class. He holds a BYU offer at this time and is ranked as the No. 68 outside linebacker nationally.
There is also an underclassmen at the school the Irish are keeping an eye on in three-star cornerback Kaonohi Kaniho, a 5-10, 160-pounder, who holds an offer from Hawaii.
