Watson, Reynolds, Kepoʻo / Combine News

Dave Reardon has some news in his blog post about Keala Watson, Korey Reynolds and Kiran Kepo’o. Here's an excerpt:
Keala Watson is working toward changing his position title from defensive tackle to defensive lineman.

The senior from Nanakuli and Kauai wants to get down to 290 pounds for his final season. Watson played last season at right around 300. He will likely start at defensive tackle, in a rotation with Fale Laeli, Rocky Savaiigaea, Josh Leonard and possibly others.

He said he wants to lighten up a little bit so he can increase his quickness and versatility.
Stephen Tsai has updated today's post with some combine results from Saturday.
Grice-Mullins and Bess also took part in the weight-lifting sessions.
Grice-Mullins bench-pressed 225 pounds 17 times.
"I'm kind of disappointed with that," Grice-Mullins said. "I think I could have done more."
Davone Bess had 14 repetitions at that weight, but said one of the lifts was discounted.
"Put it down at 14," Bess said.
Bess said he never had more than nine repetitions until he started training in Arizona last month.
"I'm stronger," he said, "and more confident."
Rivers and Brennan did not lift. Rivers will lift at the April 1 Pro Day in Carson, Calif.
Scout.com had a short blurb on Davone Bess in their Saturday blog.
3:32 p.m. - Hawaii WR Davone Bess sat down with media this afternoon and said that he will workout this weekend and is looking forward to running the 40. Bess measured in at 5-11 ½ and 193 pounds.
And Rivals' Steve Megargee gets a quote from Bess, who talks about being a "system" receiver.
While much has been made about Hawaii quarterback Colt Brennan having to fight the reputation that he's a product of June Jones' pass-happy system, the Warriors' receivers have a similar battle on their hands. Hawaii wide receiver Davone Bess just addressed that issue.

"When we go out and play on Saturdays, and hopefully Sundays, we can't really buy into that," Bess said. "We've just got to continue to work hard and do what we've been doing since we were younger and (do) what got us here. Staying focused, staying humble and most importantly working hard, and big plays will come."
