Imagine doing the laundry, and then finding $20 you forgot you had.
That's a bad metaphor to explain how linebacker Tevita Lataimua will be joining the Rainbow Warriors this summer.
Lataimua, who played at the College of San Mateo last year, signed a letter of intent with the Warriors in December 2012 with the intent of enrolling at UH for the 2013 spring semester. But he did not meet the requirements to join in January. There appeared to be no progress at the end of the spring semester.
And then last week, the Warriors received word that Lataimua met the requirements and will eligible to play this coming season. He has been added to the 104-player roster for training camp, and will compete at middle linebacker.
