California tight end says he will come to UH

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.

  • Happy to hear you’ll be joining the Warriors Kade!

    Perhaps you can talk your teammate Anthony Mermea into sticking with his original commitment to UH and coming along.

  • In the scheme Rolo wants to implement, a good tight end is critical to the success of the offense, especially given the lack of talent and speed at wide receivers and slot. Rolo was very unhappy with the lack of third down success and lack of dependable short yard success in the passing game. In order to mount successful sustained drive, yards between 5 to 15 yards during crucial downs is paramount to that success. Against the better teams last year, UH got blown out and were weak on offense because they couldn’t mount long drive and they lacked enough firepower for quick strikes. All teams they faced that matched UH in physicality and had better speed basically beat the c….p out of our defense. It is unlikely our defense is going to make a huge improvement in the upcoming season and I really don’t see a huge improvement in speed on offense either. So, the ability to get crunch yardage and improving on third down efficiency become that much more critical.
