Before Nebraska (Washington HS)
Kpai came to Nebraska as the top player in South Dakota and one of the top linebacker prospects in the country. Kpai starred for Washington High School, becoming the fourth player from the school to sign with Nebraska in the past decade. Kpai enrolled at Nebraska in January.

Kpai was recognized as one of the top players in the country as he earned second-team All-America honors from Sports Illustrated as a senior. He finished his prep career with 218 tackles, 30 tackles for loss, 10 sacks, two forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries, according to the Argus Leader. As both a junior and senior, Kpai was named to the Argus Leader Elite 45 team, which honored the top 45 players in the state regardless of class. Kpai made 79 tackles with 9.5 tackles for loss, four sacks and two forced fumbles as a senior. As a junior, he recorded 63 tackles, 12.5 tackles for loss, three sacks and two fumble recoveries. As a sophomore, Kpai helped Washington finish as the state runner-up.

The consensus top prospect in South Dakota, Kpai was regarded as a four-star recruit in the 247Sports Composite rankings, which tabbed Kpai as the nation’s No. 15 outside linebacker recruit and No. 253 overall prospect. Kpai had numerous scholarship offers and chose Nebraska over Iowa and Minnesota.

Randolph is the son of Eric and U-Tee Kpai, and he was born on Feb. 1, 2003. He is majoring in secondary education: English language arts. He has volunteered with the Nebraska Football Road Race, the Inner Circle, the UNL Dance Marathon, Thanksgiving hospital visits and the Huskers’ Day of Service.
