2014 vision

February 9th, 2013

There are 360 days until the 2014 signing day, but Kahuku High's Lamone Williams already has emerged as the state's top high school prospect.

Williams is a defensive lineman/tight end for the Red Raiders.

He was exclusively a tight end in 2011. In 2012, he was the defensive tackle in the Red Raiders' 3-man front. "We stood him up sometimes," Kahuku coach Reggie Torres said. "He stood up in the championship game as an outside linebacker."

Williams is 6 feet 3 and more than 240 pounds.

Torres said Williams is comparable to two former Red Raiders — Kona Schwenke, a defensive lineman at Notre Dame, and Hauoli Jamora, a d-end at Washington.

"He has the work ethic like Hauoli Jamora," Torres said.

Williams was an all-state defensive lineman in 2012. He might be an even better tight end.

"He has great hands, great blocking ability," Torres said. "He's a big-time player for us."

UH already has offered him a scholarship.
