I spoke Friday afternoon with HPA offensive lineman Shane Brostek, one of the most highly-regarded prospects in the state this year. He is the son of ‘Iolani legend, Washington standout and L.A. and St. Louis Ram Bern Brostek.
Shane will visit Hawaii next week. He has already visited Colorado, Oregon, UCLA and Washington.
He said people who claim he’s already decided on Oregon are just assuming.
“I don’t know why people think that,” he said. “I have no preference right now. All options are open.”
He said that includes Hawaii. New head coach Norm Chow, offensive line coach Keith Uperesa, quarterbacks coach Tommy Lee and tight ends coach Philip Rauscher visited Brostek on the Big Island earlier this week.
“It was cool,” he said. “They seem like they really want Hawaii players to play for UH.”
Brostek said Chow is the first UH coach to have offered him a scholarship.
