UH Manoa quarterback Cole McDonald will be leaving the Rainbow Warriors for the 2020 NFL draft.
On January 8, McDonald announced that he will be pursuing his dreams of playing for the NFL.
He appreciates his time in Hawaiʻi and expressed his gratitude for everyone on the Rainbow Warrior team, as well as his friends and family.
“I will forever be grateful to the University of Hawaiʻi for being the only school to offer me the chance to play Division I football,” said McDonald, via Instagram. “I will always carry Hawaiʻi on my arm, but more importantly, Hawaiʻi will always be in my heart.”
McDonald has played as a Rainbow Warrior since 2016 and has notable achievements, such as a Mountain West honorable mention and offensive player of the week, and 40 touchdowns—the fifth most in UH single-season history.
