The Warrior Beat

Comeback plans

April 5th, 2012

Tui‘atua Tuiasosopo has been attending UH spring practices wearing a "recruit" name tag. If all goes according to plan, Tuiasosopo will be identified as a Warrior.

Tuiasosopo, a former All-State offensive lineman, is re-enrolling at UH this summer.

He had signed with UH in February 2008, redshirted that year and had a limited role in 2009, after which it was announced he had medically retired.

Tuiasosopo then went on a church mission.

A few months ago, he sought a comeback. According to his father, Ana, a former Warrior and NFL player, Tuiasosopo will join this summer. He appears to be in good shape. His training involves reps of 315 pounds.
