MANOA (KHNL) -- Choosing a college can be tough.

It's even tougher when you're a top football recruit, and schools are constantly calling you.

That's what it's been like for Damien's Kama Bailey.

But just like on the field, he's taking it all in stride.

For Kama Bailey, recruiting season is just like his regular season -- wild.

"It's been crazy, you know, school just coming and call you, and asking if they wanna talk to you," said Bailey.

Bailey set a single season state record with 2,098 rushing yards.

He also scored 22 touchdowns.

But even these numbers, aren't attracting the powerhouse Division One schools.

"It's not frustrating," he said.  "I'm actually excited just to get offered to play at the college level, I never really think I come to the point for me to play level, but now it is, now the opportunity's here, I just gotta cherish and have fun with it."

The Warriors haven't offered Bailey a scholarship, but did invite him to walk on.

"They going do what they wanna do.  I would've love to play for UH, good time. Stay home and play for UH, but also, I love to go away and experience something different."

Bailey's only requirement -- a team with good chemistry.

At a school with good architecture and engineering programs.

That's what he wants to study.

"For me, I just use football for me to get higher in life, better education and get a degree. That's what I really want is a degree cause, like I know I ain't gonna be able to play football forever. So I need a degree, and I can go places with that.

Kama is a good student, carrying a 3-point-5 GPA.

Idaho, Idaho State, Navy, and Weber State are interested in him.

But Kama hasn't said where he's going yet.

National signing day for recruits is February 6th.
