Running back Will Gregory is not expected to rejoin the Rainbow Warriors.
Gregory, who led the Warriors in rushing as a second-year freshman in 2012, was placed on probation by the school last year because of a dormitory incident. After failing to comply with terms of the probation, he was dismissed from school. Gregory has unsuccessfully applied for readmission. This past season, he was a running back at Mount San Antonio College, where he rushed for 382 yards in 10 games.
The Warriors used a one-back scheme the majority of plays last year. Joey Iosefa will enter as the top back. This offseason, Steven Lakalaka has lost weight and Diocemy Saint Juste has added strength. Faga Wily, who withdrew because of personal reasons, is back in school.
The Warriors have two intriguing possibilities at running back. Samson Anguay, fully healthy after two knee surgeries, still has the quickness, toughness and dependable hands. The feeling among those in the know is he better suited at running back. He bounced between running back and slotback last year.
Also, Daniel Lewis, who signed with UH last month, will enter his first training camp at safety. But the feeling is he also has the skill to be a very good running back.
