Trech Kekahuna, a 5-foot-11, 180-pound athlete from Honolulu, Hawaii, publicly announced his commitment to Wisconsin on Sunday. Kekahuna had just completed an official weekend visit to Madison after making an unofficial visit there for camp two weeks ago when he got his Badgers scholarship offer. He paid an official visit to Nevada last weekend.
Kekahuna’s other scholarship offers were from schools in Boise State, Hawaii, Nevada and FCS Incarnate Word and Montana State. He will join the Wisconsin program as a wide receiver. Kekahuna, who will play his final season at Bishop Gorman High School in Las Vegas, spent his first three seasons at Saint Louis School in Hawaii. Current Wisconsin outside linebacker Nick Herbig and Badgers safety Kamo’i Latu, who transferred from Utah this offseason, both attended Saint Louis School.
During his junior season, Kekahuna recorded 62 receptions for 761 yards and three touchdowns and also returned kicks. Wisconsin had been one of his top picks since last fall, when he first visited campus.
Wisconsin now has 10 committed prospects in the recruiting class of 2023, including four in the past week. Kekahuna is the second committed receiver in the class, joining Collin Dixon (Tallmadge, Ohio). Kekahuna impressed Badgers receivers coach Alvis Whitted with his passing ability and speed, recording a 4.4-second rush time for 40 yards at camp two weeks ago.
