On the eve of national signing day, the University of Hawaii football team received a commitment from a California high school tight end.
Kade Greeley of Vista Murrieta High School told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser today that he will sign a letter of intent on Wednesday, the first day football recruits may put their commitments in writing.
It will be a family reunion of sorts for Greeley, whose older sister, Kalei, is an outside hitter for the Rainbow Wahine volleyball team.
On choosing UH, Greeley said: “Why not? I love it out there. My family is out there. My sister is out there. And it’s a perfect fit. I love the beach. I love the area.”
Greeley is 6 feet 6 and 230 pounds. He also plays volleyball.
Greeley, who also has four brothers, said he grew up in a competitive household. “It was always interesting,” he said. “Never a dull moment.”
He said his sister is “the most competitive. She doesn’t like to lose.”
The Greeley siblings have names beginning with “K.” He said he was named after Cade McNown, a former UCLA and NFL quarterback.
“They took that name and turned it into a ‘K,’” he said.
