A California high school quarterback is set to join the University of Hawaii football team.
Karson Greeley of Vista Murrieta High told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser he looks forward to maintaining the family ties in Manoa. His twin brother, Kade Geeeley, is a tight end who signed with the Rainbow Warriors in February. His sister, Kalei Greeley, is an outside hitter for the Rainbow Wahine volleyball team.
“It honestly sounds like a great fit,” Karson Greeley said. “I’ve got family out there. I’ve got a little bit of Hawaiian in my blood. My sister’s out there. It feels like home. I’m leaving home but I’ll be home, too.”
Greeley is 6 feet 5 inches tall and 220 pounds. He and his twin brother attended Martin Luther King High School in Riverside before transferring as sophomores to Vista Murrieta. He has played in pro-set, spread, read-option and run-and-shoot offenses, taking snaps in the shotgun and from under center.
The Warriors exited spring training with five quarterbacks: Dru Brown, Cole Brownholtz, Cole McDonald, Kyle Gallup and Hunter Hughes. Brown, who will represent UH at the Mountain West Conference media day in Las Vegas in July, is regarded as the No. 1 quarterback. Brown was 6-4 as a starter last year, including a 52-35 victory over Middle Tennessee in the Hawaii Bowl.
