Kahuku’s Hirkley Latu signs with Brigham Young

Cover2 HS Football

Named a Cover2 First Team All State Linebacker as a Senior, Kahuku Linebacker/Safety Hirkley Latu was one of the most coveted un-commited players in the state this recruiting season.

When the ink dried it was Brigham Young University that scored the Red Raider Captain.

A finalist for the Manti Te’o Award as Defensive Player of the Year, Latu cites the naming of fellow La’ie native Kalani Sitake as the Cougars Head Coach as a big reason for his choosing of BYU.

He spoke with KHON2 Sports Director Rob DeMello about his binding commitment to the Cougars following his signing.
