Recruiting, Stutzmann

Paul Honda writes about how recruiting has changed under coach Greg McMackin.
The rising tide of local recruits committing to the UH program -- almost a half-dozen on Sunday and Monday alone -- is no coincidence. The departure of June Jones from the Warriors program seems to have unleashed the coaching staff and more local recruits could be in Hawaii uniforms soon.
In fact, during the 2006-07 season, UH recruiters didn't visit, or perhaps were not permitted to visit, football powerhouse Kahuku. During that time, more than a dozen Division I recruiters visited the campus.

However, that changed in the past year, and as of this week, it appears the UH staff has more recruiting power under new head coach Greg McMackin.
Dave Reardon writes that McMackin and Ron Lee are in California on a recruiting trip.
Hawaiian Airlines has donated seats for UH coaches to recruit on the mainland.

The Warriors hope to find a quarterback to add to a class that is so far heavy on defensive backs and linemen.
Also from that article, Reardon writes about soon-to-be graduate assistant Craig Stutzmann:
"I always told people I'd rather coach in college than play in the pros," Stutzmann said. "The opportunity is awesome."
At UH, Stutzmann will likely work with the receivers along with Ron Lee.

Ron Lee (receivers), Cal Lee (linebackers), George Lumpkin (defensive ends) and Rich Miano (defensive backs) are expected to be retained on McMackin's staff. Ron Lee and Cal Lee are poised to become the offensive and defensive coordinators.
