HONOLULU (KHNL) -- It's National Signing Day, the first day student athletes officially declare which college they're going to.

47 seniors signed their national letters of intent at Honolulu's Mission Memorial Auditorium.

Two of them are soccer players.

The other 45 are football players.

Many are staying home, choosing to play for the Warrior football team.

But some of the state's best, decided to go away for school.

"When I went to Idaho, I realize that I feel more at home, feel like Hawaii to me so that's a big plus because I know I'm gonna get homesick so having people around me that feel good, feel comfortable with, is basically what made my decision," said Kama Bailey.

"Staying home, playing in front of your family, especially if you play for UH, you don't just play for Manoa or for the east side, you play for the whole state of Hawaii," said Tui Tuiasosopo.

School's cannot comment on recruits, until receiving the signed letters of intent.

Warriors Coach Greg McMackin is expected to comment on his first recruiting class in the coming days.
