Michigan, while Jim Harbaugh and the staff were at a satellite camp at Saint Louis High School in Honolulu, Hawaii, offered 2020 dual-threat quarterback Sol-Jay Maiava. He will attend Kahuku High School this fall for his freshman year.

"We had a lot of offers from all over but we decided as a family that he was going to stay home here and attend Kahuku," Maiava's father Luaao Peters said to Alan Popadines of Youth1. "It appears he’s the front runner for the QB job on varsity and has been doing [well] since the spring."

The 6-foot-1, 180-pound signal caller is the first 2020 prospect to get offered by the Wolverines.

"I want to offer you a scholarship Sol-Jay, what do you think about that? I'm ready to offer you," Harbaugh said to Maiava, according to Maiava's father Luaao Peters.

If Maiava does make the varsity team as the starting quarterback, Maiava will look to lead Kahuku High School through the 2016 season. Kahuku won the Divisoin 1 state title last season. The schedule includes a battle against Nevada powerhouse Bishop Gorman, who are the defending Division 1 state champions.

Bishop Gorman's starting quarterback will be 2017 five-star dual-threat quarterback Tate Martell, who is committed to play for Ohio State.

As many know, Michigan and Ohio State have a huge rivarly in college sports, especailly in football. The battle on September 17th in Las Vegas, Nevada could be a matchup between future Wolverine and future Buckeye.
