Kahaloa has been on the map in Hawaii for years and fulfilled lofty expectations this spring, helping pitch Campbell High to a state championship. He finished the year with a 138-pitch effort in the semifinals, striking out 15. Kahaloa, a Hawaii signee who also has a backup commitment to San Jacinto (Texas) JC, has a sturdy, strong frame at a listed 6-foot-1, 195 pounds, and a quick arm. He's touched 96 mph regularly, and early in the season he was doing it every start with a free and easy delivery, which helped him throws strikes. He had some stretches, though, where his fastball wasn't as firm and he topped out at 92, sitting with an average fastball. That's due in part to Campbell's deep pitching staff, as Kahaloa wasn't needed to go deep every start and got out of rhythm with his delivery. He has a feel for locating the fastball, and scouts can project average future command on it. Kahaloa has the makings of two average secondary pitches. He throws his slider with power on occassion, giving it more flashes of being an average pitch than his changeup. Kahaloa threw well in pre-draft workouts just after the state title and may have some late helium into the second-round range after an inconsistent spring. He's considered singable.
