For Hilo grad Holani, Kansas is dream destination
Kansas football is making one player's dreams come true. Isi Holani, a 6-foot-4, 315-pound defensive tackle who played the last seasons in junior college, is Lawrence bound.
“It’s always been a dream to play Division I college ball,” he said. “Kansas has a little bit of everything. I’m excited and get to explore a new place, somewhere I’ve never been. Hopefully, the best is yet to come.”
Holani is considered a three-star prospect by Rivals.com, and he'll have two years of eligibility with the Jayhawks.
“Part of me wanted to stay home and play in my home state,” he said. “Another part of me wanted to go out and explore and see a new adventure. My family was supportive whatever I chose. Something told me that Kansas was home for me.”
