June 20, 2016

BOISE, Idaho – Boise State men’s golf head coach Dan Potter announced the signing of Donny Hopoi to a financial aid agreement, Monday.

Hopoi, originally from Aiea, Hawaii, is transferring from Dixie State, where he completed his sophomore season in 2015-16.

“We are really looking forward to having Donny in our program,” Potter said. “He's a charismatic guy who will add to our team culture and he's a tremendously talented golfer. He hits the ball far and has great touch around the green. He's experienced big tournaments at the collegiate and amateur levels and we are excited to get him to Boise this fall.”

While at DSU, Hopoi helped lead the Trailblazers to back-to-back Pacific West Conference championships, garnering first-team All-PacWest honors as a sophomore and second-team all-league honors as a freshman.

This past season Hopoi led the Trailblazers with a scoring average of 73.74 through 10 tournaments. He recorded a trio of top-15 finishes, including a tie for 13th at the NCAA Division II West/South Regional Championships and a tie for seventh at the 2016 Pacific West Conference Championships. As a freshman, he finished fourth on the team with a scoring average of 74.58 and finished fifth at the conference championships, one of three top-15 efforts during his collegiate debut.

During his prep career at Kamehameha High School, Hopoi lettered four times and picked up four all-star team selections, while qualifying for the United States Amateur and the USGA Pub Links.
