Waianae (Hawaii) defensive tackle Kennedy Tulimasealii has the week of his life while in Orlando for the UnderArmour All-America Game.

“It was a real big honor, not only to represent my high school but my family and my state,” said Tulimasealii. “It’s a big deal, for everything I represent, the islands, I was doing it big for Hawaii.”

Tulimasealii, a commit to home-state Hawaii, got a chance to play with some of the elite defensive linemen in the country.

“It was pretty exciting just to see how big they are and see how I need to improve,” said Tulimasealii. “I talked to Coach (Norm) Chow, before I came out and he just said to do what you do best.”

Tulimasealii said that several players committing to other schools, especially those in the Pac-12, were trying to woo him to their respective programs, but he’s got no plans to leave the Islands for college.

“Some of the players were talking about how it is out there in the Pac-12, but I’m solid to Hawaii,” said Tulimasealii. “I was looking to go take some visits, but my hearts with Hawaii. I want to spend my time there. I can come out of the tunnel and my family is right there. If I went to school on the mainland, I couldn’t do it.”

Brandon is in his eighth year with Scout.com, currently as a National Recruiting Analyst and West Regional Manager. Prior to joining the Scout.com Recruiting Team, he was a team recruiting writer.  He's been covering recruiting for the Scout.com network since 2003.
