Warriors land d-tackle; might get 5-star DB

May 16th, 2012

Defensive tackle David Moala told The Warrior Beat he has accepted a UH scholarship offer and will join the Warriors in the summer of 2013.

UnknownMoala, who is 6 feet 1 and 318 pounds, redshirted as a freshman at Arizona State in 2011. This past January, he was dismissed for what was termed a violation of "team standards." He will play for Mt. San Antonio College in the fall, complete work on an associate's degree next spring and then report to the Warriors.

As a Serra High senior, he was rated as the nation's 97th-best defensive tackle. SuperPrep rated Moala as California's No. 110 overall player.

Moala turned down offers from Miami, Colorado, Colorado State, San Diego State and San Jose State to sign with ASU. After leaving the Sun Devils, he received interest from USC and LSU. But Moala said he wanted to play for UH head coach Norm Chow. They have known each other since Moala's sophomore year at Serra.

Demar Dorsey, a former 5-star prospect, has contacted UH and  is hoping to become a Warrior, according to his friend, UH cornerback Mike Edwards.

Dorsey had signed with Michigan in 2010, but did not meet the eligibility requirements. He hopes to earn an associate degree this summer.

This is not a done deal.

But if Dorsey were to end up in Manoa this summer, he would have three years to play three seasons.
