It’s been quite the week for Pereese Joas, who moved from scout team all the way to the travel roster for Saturday’s Rice game. He tried out as a walk-on in February 2013, was invited to spring practice, but didn’t have enough credits to join the team. Joas made the UH roster two weeks into this year’s training camp.
The 5-6, 170-pound running back didn’t have a jersey number at practice earlier this week (see video). Hawaii’s roster now lists him as No. 34.
