Kahuku freshman quarterback Sol-Jay Maiava tweeted Wednesday night that he has received a scholarship offer from Hawaii.

Maiava, a 6-foot-1 dual threat, led Kahuku to a second consecutive OIA title and a berth in the Open Division final of the state tournament before losing to Saint Louis.

He completed 45 percent (50-for-11) of his passes for 839 yards and eight touchdowns with three interceptions in his first year guiding the run-first offense of the Red Raiders. He also rushed for 342 yards and five touchdowns.

Maiava made national headlines when he received a scholarship offer from Michigan before taking a snap at the high school level. Since then he has also picked up offers from Fresno State and Utah.
