David Fangupo

Hawaii received a big addition - literally and figureatively - to its 2013 recruiting class when it received a commitment from 350-pound senior David Fangupo.

Extremely agile for his size, the 6-foot-2, 348-pound Fangupo carried 75 times for 534 yards and six touchdowns for Kealakehe (Kailua-Kona, Hawaii).

He caught one pass out of the backfield for 2 yards and also saw action on special teams as the team's kicker and punter.

"I felt like it was not real at the moment," Fangupo told West Hawaii Today, describing the moment when Hawaii coach Norm Chow offered him a scholarship. "I'm excited and feel blessed that they would do that for me."

According to West Hawaii Today, BYU, Georgia Tech and Utah also showed interest in Fangupo, who needs to clear academic requirements before signing a National Letter of Intent.

It's not clear which position Fangupo will play at Hawaii, though he may be best suited for defensive tackle.
