Beau Yap Commits to UH

Whoa! Stephen Tsai writes that Beau Yap will become a Warrior.
Beau Yap, The Advertiser's All-State co-Defensive Player of the Year, has accepted a football scholarship from the University of Hawaii, according to his father, Boyd Yap.

Yap, a 6-foot-2, 235-pound rush end from Kamehameha Schools, had made a commitment to Baylor last week. He visited Oregon State this weekend. But after returning today, he changed his mind and pledged a commitment to the Warriors.
Congrats to Beau! Here's his senior year highlights:

UPDATE (2/1/10): Stephen Tsai talks to Yap's father and coach at Kamehameha.
"Beau is staying home," Boyd Yap said.

Boyd Yap added: "It came on all of a sudden. I think it's great for Beau. ... We're happy for him. Basically, he decided to play at home. That's great."

Stant said he always tells his players to make college decisions based on long-range goals.

"Choose the place where you want to live the rest of your life," Stant said. "I played at UH, and I'm lucky to live and work here, hopefully for the rest of my life. If you go to school here, you're kind of known in the community after you graduate. If he wants to live here the rest of his life, I'm glad he's staying home."
