Darius Bright Commits to UH (w/UPDATE)

Stephen Tsai writes that City College of San Francisco receiver Darius Bright will become a Warrior.
Bright is 6 feet 5, 225 pounds and capable of running 40 yards in about 4.5 seconds.

He will enroll at UH this coming week, and participate in the offseason conditioning program and spring practice.

CCSF coach George Rush said Bright also was being recruited by Oklahoma.

Bright missed two games in 2009 because of migraines. In eight games, he caught 21 passes for 227 yards and four touchdowns.
Congrats to Darius!

UPDATE (1/11/10): Stephen Tsai profiles Bright.
After completing his 48-hour recruiting visit yesterday afternoon, Bright said, he notified the UH coaches that he would be accepting a scholarship from the Warriors.

"Hawai'i is a great location, with great coaches and great people," Bright said. "I felt like I was at home."

Bright, who is 6 feet 5 and 225 pounds, caught 21 passes for 227 yards and four TDs in eight games this season. Scouting services claim he is capable of running 40 yards in 4.5 seconds. Bright said he was clocked at 4.47 seconds during a combine in 2007.

CCSF head coach George Rush said Oklahoma was actively recruiting Bright through yesterday.

"I'm going to Hawai'i," Bright said. "I just feel good in Hawai'i. The offense is really good. They throw the ball a lot. I look forward to catching a lot of balls."

    hawaii should only recruit guys that are at least 6'-3" and up, weighing in with at least 210 lbs. Only then can Hawaii go up against BCS teams like Georgia and Wisconsin.

    With Pete Carolle gone to the seahawks...I have hope now that Hawaii has a closer chance of upsetting the trojans. Analysts are already putting USC in the mid rebuilding state due to the new coaching staff. With a new coach usually comes a slightly new scheme of plays to learn. Hopefully hawaii doesn't get the injury bug causing backups to step up. Everyone needs to play at the level of starters...playing by instinct
