While everyone was busy focusing on the heavily-hyped class Ole Miss signed last week, perhaps the most notable move of National Signing Day went overlooked: David Fangupo, a 348-pound fullback, committed to Hawaii.
Fangupo is 6-foot-2 and weighs 348 pounds, according to West Hawaii Today. He just completed his senior season for Kealakehe (Kailua-Kona, Hawaii) High School, which went 10-2 and won its third straight Big Island Interscholastic Federation title.
At 6-foot-2 and 348 pounds, you would think Fangupo is a lineman, and you would be partially correct; he played both offensive and defensive line before his senior season. But his coach reportedly saw his speed and athleticism, and installed him as a fullback for his senior season.
The results were tremendous — Fangupo rushed for 538 yards and 10 touchdowns on 74 carries, according to the paper (Max Preps says he scored six TDs). Max Preps says he also saw action as the team’s kicker and punter.
