Rashaan Falemalu, a linebacker/tight end at Kahuku High, has made a verbal commitment to play for the Warriors in 2013.
Falemalu is 6-2 and 210 — and growing, according to Kahuku coach Reggie Torres.
Yes, that name should be familiar. He's the younger brother of UH defensive end Paipai Falemalu.

It was a successful spring practice today — on and off the field, and sometimes both.
High school coaches, prospects and recognizable alumni (Chad Owens, Maa Tanuvasa) were among the attendees at the practice, which doubled as a coaches' clinic and talk-story gathering. Participation award went to David Hallums, who brought 13 Pearl City High coaches. (They also were the best dressed.)
The Warriors will have another day for high school juniors later in spring training. This was a good start.
