Cowboys offer Hawaii defensive end

The Cowboys second year staff has looked to open up their recruiting inroads into Hawaii led by outside linebacker coach Mike Fanoga.

Fanoga, a native of American Samoa, brings a good background recruiting Polynesian student-athletes, while also handling recruiting in Hawaii. The Cowboys hope to gain momentum with the hidden talent in the area.

One player from Hawaii who's caught the Cowboys' attention is Juda Parker, a 6-foot-2 and 245 pound defensive end from St. Louis High School in Honolulu.

Parker received an official scholarship offer from the Cowboys and recently performed well at the FBU Top Gun Camp in Williamsburg, Va.

Parker was considered the biggest surprise at the camp by the Rivals.com's three analysts in attendance, while showing quickness and good effort throughout the workouts.

Because of quickness with the ability to play the hybrid OLB/DE and be an effective pass rusher on the next level, it is obvious why Wyoming coaching staff likes Parker and officially offered him to play at UW.

Parker has scholarship offers from the Wyoming, Weber State, and New Mexico State.

The Cowboys have offered another Hawaii defensive linemen in Lake Koa-Ka'ai a scholarship. He recently stopped in Laramie after a mainland trip which included visits to UW, CU, Cal, and Stanford.

The 6-foot-4 and 250 pound Koa-Ka'ai has received several scholarship to-date from Mountain West, WAC, BIG 12, and PAC 10 schools.
