The Warriors had 7-on-7 and 11-on-11 drills for the first time this training camp. The offense received several new plays, which resulted in an uneven performance. The same menu of plays will be used this afteroon (4 p.m.-6 p.m. practice), then more plays will be added for practices Friday and Saturday.
• It appears quarterback Kiran Kepo‘o will not play for the Warriors this fall. His No. 12 jersey is being given to Greg Alexander.
• Running back Jake Heun has been hobbled by a tight calf. He suffered the injury during Monday’s practice.
• Mike Washington made the best play. He broke off a bubble route, cut between two defenders, caught Inoke Funaki’s pass and race away.

Deondre Powell is regarded as the fifth recruit to commit for 2009. But next year’s class also should include the grayshirts, such as wide receiver Kalua Noa, defensive end Alema Tachibana, linebacker Art Laurel, and defensive backs Christian Vasconcellos and Earvin Sione.
Courtesy of our friend Jon Nielsen, here are pictures of Powell, as well as one with quarterback Corey Nielsen:
