New Warriors

Stephen Tsai writes about the players who signed with UH yesterday.
Defensive end Craig Cofer of Grossmont College signed his papers, then faxed them before heading to classes.

In an elaborate ceremony in Waikiki, All-State linebacker Justin Vele of Farrington High was the Warriors' lone recruit.

In Vancouver, Wash., a school assembly was held as receiver Ellis Henderson of Skyview High signed his UH letter.

Slotback Chinedu Amadi, who goes by his middle name, Promise, said it was a lifelong dream to earn a football scholarship.

"I'm excited about going to Hawaii," he said.
Jaymes Song of the AP has a signing day wrap-up.
The class includes 13 from California, five from Hawaii, two from Washington, one from Ohio and others from as far away as Australia, New Zealand and American Samoa. McMackin said three-quarters of the group could find playing time this season.

"Of the players we visited and offered, we got 80 percent of them," McMackin said. "If you're at 30 percent, 40 percent, you're pretty good. But we're at 80 percent."
I've also updated my unofficial roster to reflect the new signees. Still unsure about some previous greyshirts, walk-ons, etc. but it'll sort itself out with spring on the way.
