John Hardy-Tuliau Commits to UH

Stephen Tsai writes that Vista Murrieta cornerback and kick-blocking specialist John Hardy-Tuliau will become a Warrior.
Hardy-Tuliau is 6 feet 1 and 165 pounds.

During his varsity career, he blocked 26 kicks — a state record, according to CalHiSports.

"I just have a knack for blocks," Hardy-Tuliau said.

This past season, Hardy-Tuliau amassed 65 tackles, 10 interceptions and nine pass deflections. He scored three touchdowns.

He was named to the MaxPrep's All-California Division I second team.

His father is John Hardy, who played two seasons with the Chicago Bears.

Hardy-Tuliau said he received interest from Colorado, Washington and Stanford. But he said choosing UH was an easy decision.
Tsai also has more about Kody Afusia.
UH's Matagisila Lefiti served as Afusia's host. Although they are both centers, Afusia said, "my host made me feel at home. He answered all of my questions. He was real cool. He helped me out a lot."

Afusia said he also had encouraging discussions with UH line coach Gordy Shaw.

"He likes my intensity," Afusia said.

Afusia can play defense — he was named the Golden West League's Defensive Player of the Year — but will compete at center at UH.
Congrats to John and Kody. Via SportsHawaii.com, here are a couple of John's highlight videos:
