Warriors add corner; video of Wonder news conference

July 10th, 2012

Tony Grimes, a former 4-star cornerback who played nine games as an Ole Miss freshman in 2010, will be joining the Warriors. He has been accepted into UH and will be moving to Hawaii this weekend. He has three years to play two seasons.

"I'm going to be a Warrior," Grimes told the Star-Advertiser. "Hawaii has a good program and good coaches. I want to be a part of that."

Ole Miss suspended and then dismissed Grimes near the end of the 2010 season after breaking team rules. He was the starting cornerback at Arizona Western in 2011.

Two months ago, he was arrested on an accusation of aggravated robbery. The charge was dismissed, and he instead pled guilty to disorderly conduct.

"This is my second chance," Grimes told the Star-Advertiser. "This is my fresh start."

Giovanni Stevenson has been admitted into UH and is joining the Warriors as a walk-on.

As a Campbell High linebacker, Stevenson was named to the Star-Advertiser's 2011 All-State first team. He also was the 2011 OIA Red West Division defensive player of the year.

Stevenson led the Sabers with 108 tackles in 11 games in 2011, including 18 backfield stops. He had six sacks and three interceptions, including two that were raced back for touchdowns.

He is 5-10 and 235 pounds.

His stepfather is Kapolei High offensive line coach Alden Kaaihue, who was an All-State tight end for Kahuku in 1987.

His father is Richard Stevenson, who was named the 1986 OIA offensive player of the year as a Kahuku running back.
