With camp opening this weekend, it's time to empty the notebook:
> The offseason conditioning program ended last night — this morning? — with midnight weightlifting. In a twist, the players were in costume.
> Taz Stevenson, a Mililani High graduate, completed his transfer from Washington with notification of acceptance into the Pacific Islands Studies' graduate program. Stevenson earned a bachelor's degree from Washington, but needed to be accepted into graduate school to be eligible to play this season for UH. Stevenson will be used at safety.
> Defensive tackle Lawrence Lagafuaina, who also earned a BA from Washington, is awaiting acceptance into a UH graduate program to complete his transfer to UH. Lagafuaina said he has submitted the necessary paper work.
> Former USC quarterback Max Wittek is awaiting his UH acceptance. He is joining the Warriors as a non-scholarship player.
> Former Nebraska linebacker Jared Afalava took an unofficial visit to UH this past week.
> Keelan Ewaliko will be a receiver when UH opens camps.
> UH ordered 24 lockers for the coaches. Only 12 full-sized lockers arrived. Because of a mix-up, the other 12 are somewhere "in transit," as they say in the biz.
