Prospect watch

The Star-Bulletin's top 20 college football prospects from Hawaii high schools are ranked by Jason Kaneshiro and Dave Reardon after consultation with high school and college coaches. Other prospects are listed in alphabetical order. Out-of-state prospects considering Hawaii are compiled with assistance from coaches and recruiting services. The lists will be updated until Feb. 5, national letter of intent day, when high school players can first make their commitments binding. Asterisks indicate a player has been offered a scholarship by that college. Dates in parentheses are visit weekends.
