HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - Today high school athletes across the country put pen to paper as early signing day saw many prep players accomplish their collegiate dreams.

On the slopes of Kalaepohau at the Dr. Tseu Presidential Suite in the Clarence T.C. Ching Learning and Technology Center at Saint Louis School nine student athletes made their decisions of where their football dreams will take them next.

ScoringLive’s Open Division defensive player of the year Nicholas Herbig ’20, signed with Wisconsin and has called his recruiting process a blessing.

“It’s such a great feeling to finally put pen to paper," said Herbig. “I’m blessed to be in the position that I am, I really felt the atmosphere there and everybody was so welcoming it kind of felt like Hawaii to be honest and it kind of reminded of me home.”

Herbig will be joined in the Big 10 by Crusader receiver Roman Wilson, who signed with the Michigan Wolverines.

Wilson is determined to make a name for himself at the next level and already has a big goal heading into his freshman season in Ann Arbor.

“I want to beat Ohio St. that’s the first goal,” said Wilson. “I’m excited to go away and make a name for myself at the next level.”

Other Crusaders who signed letters of intent today included outside linebacker Jordan Botelho who will attend Notre Dame, quarterback Jayden De Laura who will compete for time as a freshman at Washington State University, Wide receiver Matthew Sykes who will play at UCLA, defensive lineman Stanley McKenzie who will attend California University and Lawai’a Brown who will play at central Michigan.
