Get to Know Your Orange Man: #75, OL Austyn Kauhi

He’s ready to say ‘Aloha’ to the Dome turf

Syracuse v Maryland

We continue our Syracuse Orange roster preview with a native of the Aloha state.

Name: Austyn Kauhi

Position: Offensive Line

Year: Redshirt Freshman

Height: 6’5”

Weight: 271 lbs.

Hometown: Nanakuli, Hawaii

High School: Kamehameha High School

2021 stats: Appeared in one game.

2022 projections: Kauhi will likely end up as a backup tackle. With one of the starting spots locked down by Matthew Bergeron, who has yet to miss a game, he’ll be hard pressed to see the field on offense. He should get meaningful time blocking on special teams and can continue to develop under some veterans.

Tweet of Wonder: These pictures were taken in December 2020. In Syracuse. With no snow. Truly strange times we live in...

How’d he get here?: Kauhi chose the Orange over offers from Hawaii, San Diego State, UCF, and elsewhere.

What’d recruiting sites say?: He earned three stars from 247 Sports but only two stars from Rivals. Rated the top offensive tackle in the Aloha State from the Class of 2021.

Money Quote: Kauhi spoke about accepting his SU scholarship with Hawai’i TV station KHON:

“It meant a lot, because there are a lot of talented people here in Hawai’i, but a lot of them don’t get recognized. I’m grateful that what I can do has been recognized by the college coaches. I’m blessed to have the opportunity to play off island and at a big school.”

Interesting nugget o’interest: Austyn’s brother, Anstyn, is a Safety for Olivet Nazarene University of the NAIA.
