2013 Hawaii football recruiting: Warriors sign 20 players

Kirby Lee-US PRESSWIRE

Hawaii had a surprise recruiting class by finishing fourth in the Mountain West

The Hawaii Warriors 2012 season under first-year head coach Norm Chow was not a good season, the team struggled on both sides of the en route to a 3-9 record. However, there looks to be some improvement coming to the islands, as Hawaii finished with the fourth best class in the Mountain West.

It also helps that Hawaii landed a pair of ESPN 300 recruits in quarterback Aaron Zwahlen, and is the 11th best pocket passer in the country. He also was just on the outside of ESPN's 150, at 155. Zwahlen is of course Hawaii's highest rated offensive player, and was their top recruit overall. However, Hawaii fans may have to wait to see Zwahlen to see the field as he is expected to serve a two-year Mormon mission.

The best defensive grab was also an ESPN 300 recruit in local defensive tackle Kennedy Tulimasealii who also was selected to the Under Armour game. Plus, Hawaii also snagged the best running back in state in Aofaga Wily.
