Hoomanawanui has some physical skills but has struggled to show it on the field. He came to Illinois with a lot of expectations but suffered some sort of injury virtually every season. He has good size and flashes the ability to smother opponents when blocking on the edge but does not unload with much pop or punch and often lets opponents escape with minimal resistance. He tends to round off his cuts and does not show much of a burst out of his breaks and struggles to separate from good man coverage. He shows good hand-eye coordination and has a wide receiving radius.
