Defensive tackle Keti Salakielu of Green Valley High in Las Vegas has accepted a football scholarship from the Warriors.
He's big (6 feet 5, 295 pounds), strong and surprisingly agile.
There's one catch: He's going on a two-year church mission after graduating high school.
He will be playing for the Warriors in 2015.

Let's see, the Mountain West Conference was looking to set up two six-team divisions.
Hmmm. Mountain West.
After some discussion. it was decided to name the divisions "Mountain" and "West."
UH will be in the West (discounting the argument that its telescopes on Mauna Kea give it mountain rights). Other West teams are UNLV, Nevada, Fresno State, San Diego State and San Jose State.
The other side will be ... ah, who cares? All I know is there are (legal) casinos in the other five West sites.

Apologies for the late post, but I couldn't sign into the blog. I would have posted a warning but, well, I couldn't sign in. Big thanks to Scott Morifuji for fixing the problem.
