If you’re a basketball player and you’ve got a college commitment to announce, Twitter is very much the place to do it these days.
On Tuesday, the fourth — fourth — girls hoops player of the offseason/preseason announced a verbal commitment to join the Hawaii Rainbow Wahine for 2019-20. It was Naenae Calhoun, a 5-foot-4 point guard at JW North High in Riverside, Calif. Her full name is Tyzajahanae Fuller-Calhoun.

A couple of weeks ago, UH assistant Courtney Locke turned to Matthew McConaughey for a little help keeping track of the commits.

Players can sign for the 2019-20 season as soon as Nov. 14, the start of the early period, which is about a week after the 2018-19 season opener on Nov. 6 vs. Pepperdine.
It’s believed the Wahine have one more scholarship opening for next season. Coach Laura Beeman cannot comment on recruits until they are officially signed.
