A three-star recruit coming out of California joins the Hawaii secondary. Mykal Tolliver, who is rated as a three-star recruit by Scout, Rivals and 247Sports, is set to join the Rainbow Warriors in 2016 at cornerback.

The Californian comes to Hawaii from St. John Bosco High School, where he helped lead the Braves to a 13-1 record. During his junior campaign, Tolliver earned Cal-Hi Sports All-State Juniors third team honors. He also received recognition from the Long Beach Press Telegram, earning a spot on their second-team Dream Team.

In addition to Hawaii, Tolliver also got numerous offers including ones from Colorado State, Fresno State, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah State and Wyoming.

His position: DB

His measurables: His height and weight are from the University of Hawaii Football website.

Height 6 feet
Weight 175 pounds

His years prior to UH: In his junior year at St. John Bosco High School, Tolliver had 52 total tackles (42 solo), defended 8 passes and intercepted 4 passes; 3 of his 4 interceptions were returned for touchdowns.

While a senior, he compiled 38 tackles (30 solo) while building on the impressive pass defense numbers he had previously with 13 pass deflections and added 1 interception.

His scouting report (from Scout): "Tolliver is an impressive player who we had a chance to see in action last Friday. He has good size, runs well and has very good cover skills. He's a physical player who is strong in run support and closes extremely well on the ball."
