As some of you have already passed along, the Huskies did indeed get a commitment over the weekend from Mykenna Ikehara, a 6-3, 275-pound offensive lineman from Kamehameha, Kapalama Campus in Honolulu.
Here's a release on his commitment sent out last night by the Pacific Islands Athletic Alliance:
"Mykenna Ikehara, 6'3, 275 lb Offensive Lineman from Kamehameha, Kapalama Campus,in Honolulu, has given his committment to play for the University of Washington Huskies tonight.
Mykenna, son of Adrian and Iolani Ikehara of Mililani, Hawaii never attended a mainland football camp or clinic. He attended and received top Offensive Lineman awards at the PIAA Evaluation Camp in May 2007 - where he was first noticed by Coach Chris Tormey who recruits Hawaii for the Huskies, the Just Win Camp in 2007 on Maui, and Brian Derby Offensive Lineman Camps. Mykenna was First Team All-State and First Team All-ILH in both the Honolulu Star Bulletin and the Honolulu Advertiser, as well as a 2007 HUB Classic Senior Bowl Game participant. Mykenna was listed as #26 in the Scout.com West Top 100.
Mykenna said tonight 'it just felt like a good fit'. Ikehara is a full academic qualifier carrying a 3.9 gpa."
