Warriors sign JC safety

Los Angeles Harbor College safety Justice Augafa, who was born and raised in Alaska, told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser he signed a scholarship agreement with the Warriors last night. An official announcement is expected today.

Augafa, who is 5 feet 11 and 205 pounds, will join the Warriors for training camp, which opens July 26. He will have three years to play two UH seasons.

Here what it means:

> Versatility: Augafa was a multi-talented senior at South Anchorage High in 2014. He was named the state’s offensive player of the year after rushing for 1,360 yards and 20 touchdowns. He also was named to the all-state first team as a safety. He scored five TDs on returns — three on punts, two on kickoffs. He was a safety at LA Harbor.

> Aloha spirit: TCU made a push last year, and San Diego State and Washington State made offers this year. But Augafa said he chose UH during a recruiting visit last week. “It was a better environment for me,” Augafa said. “The coaches are excellent. The players have a good chemistry. I thought it was a good place to pick.”

> Waiting game: In what has become a UH tradition, the Warriors try to hold a couple spots in reserve for players who are available after the February signing day. Linebacker Adam Leonard was not one of the signees announced on Feb. 2, 2005. Later that year, the Warriors added Colt Brennan and Dan Kelly. More recently, Rigo Sanchez, Scott Harding, Sean Schroeder and Dru Brown were added just before the start of training camp.

    Great pickup; GO WARRIORS! Could he be used as a RB also? So does this mean there will be no more signings for this recruiting class?

    off topic:
    Since the McEnroe/Serena thing…
    Does anyone remember, I think it was in the late 80’s, a group of ragtag former UH basketball and other UH male athlete players playing an exhibition/scrimmage vs. the US Women’s Olympic/National Team? All I remember was it was close, with the men winning by about 3-4 points. It was something like 80-76..points was in the 70’s or 80’s I believe. Names I remember were Ken Niumatalolo and Mike Among.

    I just purchased the best available 270 tickets ($65 each); on the Hawaii side line in Sections 7H & 8L; 10-19 rows up around the 5 yard line. these sections are closer to the field as this stadium curves in & this is where visiting fans sit. This stadium has 77+ rows so this are great seats closer to the field. let me know if you want these tix as I had to pay for these upfront. Text me at 415-324-0585.

    Last great Rainbow to come out of Harbor JC was defensive back, George Lumpkin.

    Don’t need him as a RB we look loaded with good runners looks like Trayvon’s replacement at safety, big hitter.

    H Man thx for kind word.

    I agree he should be playing D most of the time but I do hope UH can use him as a wildcat QB. He has the running skill, size and strength to get it done. Right now, we have Ursua as the wildcat. He is only 180 lbs though. Aufaga is 205 lbs and strong as a ox. Give UH a lot of options near the goal line with a guy like him.

  16. Abunai June 27, 2017 5:42 pm

    Hope he stays committed. Still got a long ways to go. Rolo and staff need to stay on it.

    2018 UH verbal commit from Cali HS RB……
