Manley, Tokuda and Siavii (© Barry Markowitz, 2010)
This year Tokuda will have his hands full replacing Manley - a three-year starter - but his defense should be solid. It's led by 2011 prospects Austin Schmidt, Stockton Crowley, Ryan Pasoquen and Dillon Pauu.
Schmidt, a 5-11, 210-pound linebacker, is hearing from Wyoming, UNLV, Weber State and Idaho. He's also a very smart kid, boasting a 3.8 GPA, so places like Yale, Harvard and Stanford have also been snooping around.

Crowley is a 6-0, 175-pound outside linebacker prospect who is hearing early from Hawaii, UNLV and Idaho. Pasoquen, who Tokuda compared favorably with 2009 prospect Brian Suite from Punahou - who signed with Utah State - is a 6-foot-1, 170-pound safety prospect, and might just be a bigger hitter than Suite. He's also a smart student, with a 3.3 GPA. Idaho, Weber State, Hawaii and Wyoming have been talking to Pasoquen so far in the recruiting process.

Pauu, a 5-foot-11, 165-pound safety prospect, is already hearing from UNLV, Hawaii, Weber State and Idaho.

Other 2011 players who look to be difference-makers for Tokuda this fall include OL Kalawaia Jenkins (6-1, 230), WR Darrien Shealy (6-1, 175), WR Fred Padrones (5-9, 175) and LB Darric Matsumiya (6-1, 185).
For the 2012 class, Russell Siavii - brother of Robert - is holding it down as a 6-foot-2, 170-pound safety. Other junior-to-be prospects to watch out for this coming fall include DB Reece Acohido (5-10, 170), DE Peni Melei (6-1, 175) and ATH Miah Andrade (5-7, 150).
