Stump to UH, Previews, Japan?

Stephen Tsai writes that quarterback Darian "Stump" Godfrey is transferring from New Mexico to UH.
He was named the 2009 Mr. Texas.

That year, he was the Texas 3A Offensive Player of the Year in leading Gilmer High to a 15-0 record.

He received multiple offers as a Gilmer senior (including from Oklahoma and Tennessee), but those schools wanted him as an "athlete." He was recruited as a quarterback by New Mexico. UH coach Greg McMackin, who met with Godfrey for the first time this morning, said he will compete at quarterback.
Chris Murray of the Reno Gazette-Journal previews the WAC season, and highlights the one returning starting QB in the WAC,Bryant Moniz.

Ari Cutler of Boxscorenews.com previews the UH-Colorado game.

Colorado will start at least three true freshmen vs UH.
CU’s post-camp depth chart, released on Monday by new coach Jon Embree, features freshmen Darragh O’Neill and Will Oliver, respectively, in the No. 1 punting and placekicking roles, and Greg Henderson in the starting right cornerback spot.

Additionally, freshman Tyler McCulloch is listed as a co-starter with senior Toney Clemons at the X wide receiver position. If McCulloch opens at Hawaii, he would become the first freshman in school history to start a season opener at wide receiver.
And The Japan Times has an article about UH athletic director Jim Donovan's efforts to have the Warriors play a regular-season game in Japan.
"We're looking at the possibility of playing an American football game in Japan in a few years from now," Donovan said after the basketball team's final game on the tour against the JBL's Panasonic Trians in Hirakata, Osaka Prefecture, on Saturday.

"We've started trying to see what the cost would be and if it is financially and logistically possible. Positively, it looks like it is logistically possible. We have to focus on the finances."
