It appears former Saint Louis School defensive lineman Tristan Nichols is heading to the Manoa campus next year.
Nichols, a sophomore at Arizona Western (junior) College, made a verbal commitment to the Warriors this week.
Tre Nichols said his son is 6 feet 5 and 255 pounds.
“He’s getting bigger and bigger every day,” Tre Nichols said.
Nichols was raised on Maui but transferred to Saint Louis in 2015, where he played as a 16-year-old senior.
“He’s a good player,” Saint Louis coach Cal Lee said. “He’s very eager to learn. He did everything you told him to do.”
Tre Nichols said his son “has been an athlete all his life.” Tristan Nichols began playing soccer at age 5. He then added basketball, baseball and football.
He is on full scholarship at Arizona Western. “He’s dedicated to education and weight lifting and getting bigger,” Tre Nichols said. “That’s his job. Dad, mom, will take care of everything else.”
