Many thought that after Mckenzie Milton decided to commit to UCF that Kalakaua Timoteo would commit elsewhere too. However, soon after Milton made his announcement, Timoteo reaffirmed his commitment to the University of Hawaii. He was finally able to send his full commitment in on National Signing Day.

The Mililani High School product received first-team all state honors from the Honolulu Star-Advertiser and KHON2's Cover2. He also garnered recognition from ScoringLive and American Family Insurance making their all-Hawaii Football Division I team and all-Hawaii team respectively.

Throughout the recruiting process he was largely considered a three-star recruit by 247Sports, Rivals and Scout. Prior to signing with Hawaii, Timoteo also received offers from UNLV and Washington State.

His position: WR

His measurables: All of his measurements have come from his latest Nike SPARQ combine results.

Height 6 feet 3 inches
Weight 197 pounds
40-yard Dash 4.82 seconds
20-yard Shuttle 4.2 seconds

In his years prior to UH: Kalakaua Timoteo's junior season finished with a state title. In the process of helping lead his team to the state championship he totaled 56 catches for 1,025 yards and 11 touchdowns.

Timoteo then let the state of Hawaii know that, that was just the start when he hauled in 70 passes for 1,345 yards and 22 touchdown his senior year. A year in which he helped lead the Trojans to the State playoff, semi-finals.

He currently holds Mililani High School's record for most receiving yards in a game with 199. Timoteo stamped his high school career with two other 190 yard performances against Kapolei HS and Liberty HS (Nevada).

Scouting report: He has the tools (good hand, route running and body positioning) to become a very good player for a mid-major school. However, it is noted that his lack of explosiveness to truly make himself on of the best in the nation.

His tape: His Hudl profile show much of his recent highlights. You can also check out his Under the Radar feature that shows some of his workouts alongside some of the top high school talent.
