A bit early for a profile, but h/t to @JMBuffs for pointing him out as an impressive in-state sophomore. Stats were pretty "wow" for a guy who played NT. You don't usually see this many tackles from the position.

McChesney follows, so maybe he's going to be part of the Dungeon Family. That would be a big plus.

I think the guy you're thinking of is Aidan Ikaika Keanaaina. Seems like a guy that CU will offer. If they don't think he's quite what they're looking for on the DL, I'd think he'll get offered on the OL to play guard. 6'3" 292 and a 4.1 GPA. hudl bio says that he's been playing since 3rd grade with his dad as his youth coach. Seems like the type of player you make room for with your in-state recruiting. I'm going to go ahead and make a profile because I'm intrigued.
Kid loves d-line. I hear that he is freaky athletic for his size.

Strange that he doesn't have any offers. I know he's young, but an athletic 6'3" 292 sophomore, playing for a visible, 5A program seems like a no-brainer.
Good point since schools seem to be offering earlier these days as well.

Also thinking this kid is this big and athletic as a sophomore, what is he going to be like as a senior if he spends a couple years with McChesney?

Especially with that 4.1 GPA. No academic reason to not get an early offer. You'd think we'd at least be seeing FCS & G5 at this point.

Was just about to post this. Love the quotes from him. Sounds like CU is in good position here. Stanford is the school that would worry me if an offer materializes. I can't see him choosing CSU with offers from Oregon and CU on the table heading into his junior year.

My nephew plays with Aiden and Brother N Law is involved with the Mullen program. New head coach played with Elway in the 80's at Stanford. If Stanford offers he is a "Tree." I can't fault him either. I hope they don't offer but I am not holding my breath. He would be awesome to have. Seems like a really great kid.

I have heard the same things.

A lot can happen, and always seems to, between now and December 2019. No reason to worry, this entire Forum is excrutiatingly pregnant with anticipation. . . 2020 is sci-fi futuristic
