Luke Shawley, a rush end from San Diego Mesa College, will sign a letter of intent with the Rainbow Warriors today and begin attending UH classes in January.
Today is the first day mid-year transfers may sign national letters of intent.
Shawley, who is 6 feet 3 and 255 pounds, is capable of running 40 yards in 4.58 seconds, bench-presssing 400 pounds and squat-lifting 600 pounds.
In 10 games this past season, he had 74 tackles and was third among California JC players with 10 sacks. He also recovered two fumbles.
Cornerback Cesar Fermin of Moorpark College also will sign his LOI today.
Linebackers Tui Unga, who previously signed with Fresno State, and Rashaan Falemalu, a 2013 Kahuku High graduate and Paipai Falemalu's younger brother, will join UH in January. After signing with FS in 2012, Unga was scheduled to go on a church mission. But he did not meet all the mission requirements and, a year later, was free to sign elsewhere.
