Defensive end Max Hendrie is expected to medically retire from the UH football team.
The status means Hendrie would remain on scholarship, but would be ineligible to play for the Warriors.
Hendrie, who was born and reared in Sydney, was listed as a defensive end in the Warriors’ four-man front.
He redshirted in 2016. He played in nine games in 2017, recording 13 tackles as a reserve end and on special teams. Last year, Hendrie played in 13 games. Two of his three tackles were sacks (both against BYU). He also returned a blocked punt for a touchdown against Navy.
Jonah Laulu was the No. 1 defensive end in the recent spring game. Mason Vega, who is recovering from an ailment, also should contend for time at that spot in training camp.
