The Warrior Beat

Class action

February 2nd, 2013

This is the final recruiting weekend and, if everything holds, the Warriors will be coming away with their best local recruiting class in several years.

According to several in the know, the top three local prospects are Kennedy Tulimasealii of Waianae High, Isaac Savaiinaea of Punahou School and John Wa‘a of Kahuku High. The Warriors received commitments from Tulimasealii and Wa‘a. Savaiinaea, who once committed to Stanford, is now down to UCLA or Texas A&M.

Wa‘a probably would have received more attention if he had not decided to commit to UH early. It was similar to the situation with Dave Lefotu three years ago. Lefotu is a two-year starter for the Warriors. Wa‘a, who projects as a tackle, is 280 pounds but is a "knee-bender" — the vernacular for an athletic linemen who can get into a low stance.

The Warriors are expected to get a couple of more commitments in the next two days. Then it will a matter of making sure the oral commitments become written ones on Wednesday.

According to UH, there were 19 minutes of delays caused by floor wiping during last night's volleyball match.

Stanford's rhythm-busting strategy was to request a floor wipe after every UH point. Two things made it suspect: 1) No requests were made entering a timeout and, 2) the Stan Sheriff Center is air-conditioned.

There's a simple answer: Dry mops.

Just sayin' . . .
