Warriors secure commitment from Mililani linebacker

A defensive leader from one of the state’s top programs — middle linebacker Darius Muasau of Mililani High — told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser he has accepted a 2019 scholarship offer from the Warriors.
“I always wanted to stay home,” Muasau said. “It’s a good chance to stay home and represent Hawaii.”
Mililani coach Rod York said Muasau is 6 feet 1, 230 pounds, and has been electronically timed running 40 yards in sub-4.8 seconds.
“He will be our defensive leader,” York said of Muasau, the play-caller of the Trojans’ 4-3 defensive scheme. “He’s aggressive. He comes downhill real quick. He has great instincts. And he gets after it. … His future is bright with the University of Hawaii.”
York said Muasau also will be used as a running back, slotback and tight end on offense this coming season.
Muasau has a cumulative 3.6 grade-point average.

    Seems like Banker is connecting with a lot of local kids.

    I believe this was a Yoro recruit

    This new coaching staff is already starting to pay off~~

    Recruiting approach is kind of interesting so far this year. I get that it is important to secure some commits early because there is an early signing period but lot of power 5 teams have too many commits from guys I’m not sure they would normally take this early on and thought Hawaii could sit back and be patient signing maybe 10 max early signing period and scooping some studs in Feb. With some big needs, I really hope 1st priority type players commit and sign first and needs get addressed.

    To me, the big needs were recruiting more speed at play maker and db and securing the OL and DL spots. Of course I’m all for getting commits from guys who were 1st or 2nd on the big board at any specific position.

    Seems like were gambling more than filling needs early on. Which could pay off or not. But I’m confident in our current LBs regardless. Confident in Chevan. So hoping next commits fulfill more needs.

    8. We say that after every new staff, including Rolos 1st group of hires. Nothing is paid off until the players show they can play. We can say it paid off after Timoteo and Milton committed but 1 ended up signing with UCF and the other isn’t even eligible at Hawaii.

  11. Boolakanaka July 12, 2018 2:42 pm

    I agree with Jeezy that more speed was needed at receiver and DBs— we need to have noticeable change of momentum at these positions.

  12. Jeezy33 July 12, 2018 3:15 pm

    Needed to also clarify that we do need LBs in his class. But LBs and RBs probably produce the most D1 players at those positions per class so it’s not a hard position to fill and I would only take guys who are very high on the board. Most times good safeties like Solomon Matautia end up being the best lbs anyway.

    Going in blind when you can wait a little to watch some high school games is dangerous.

    Coach Rolovich needs to hire “stable geniuses”.

    I wish Americans would stop treating their side like a sports team.

    If Hawaii allowed a pedophile to remain on the team, I am pretty sure I would boycott the program. I was actually rooting for Arkansas until the Razorback fans brought out their troll-like signs.

    Love, in regard to unconditionality, should only be reserved for loved ones.

    A coach that throws players off his team is a good coach in my book.

    In retrospect, now that I am older, I respect Kenneth Mortimer for denying Ray Reid his senior season.

    At the time, all I cared about was winning. It’s been many, many years since Reid played, but my younger self remember thinking that Reid was as good as Tony Webster before he got injured.

    “Rod York said Darius Muasau also will be used as a running back, slotback and tight end on offense this coming season.”

    That means he can RUN, and CATCH passes –

    That means we can look forward to Nate Ilaola’s SHUFFLE PASS plays again !!!

    Saw an older tweet and QB Dillon Gabriel was offered by UH in May, but is headed to West Point. His father is Garrett.

    This will be post #17 after Mr. Tsai takes out his pesticide.

    “well darkness has a hunger that’s insatiable”
    “and lightness has a call that’s hard to hear”.

    Cappie, remain calm. Mr Tsai will take care.

    Nice to hear a local kid will stay home and play in front of his family, friends, his State University and most especially to represent our State of Hawaii.

    Bad news. It was reported this morning that football season ticket sales are at an all-time low of 11,442 sold to date versus 14,294 tickets the same time last year. I find this scary since this equates to about a $400K+ decline in revenue…before the season starts. Anti-UH Athletic people can and will use this to call for the end of the UH sports program.

    Football is not in trouble. It actually makes money.
    It’ll never come down to football or no football.
    Now a non-revenue men’s sport, well, that would be a cause for concern.
