Two Baldwin Bears will be joining the Warriors.
Quarterback Keelan Ewaliko, the two-time MIL Offensive Player of the Year, has accepted a scholarship offer from the Warriors. Ewaliko will be part of the 2013 recruiting class.
Ewaliko, who is 5-11 and 175 pounds, led the MIL in rushing and passing yards in 2011.
Last week, he won the 200-meter dash in 22.49 seconds at the state track meet. He also was a member of the Bears’ state-champion 400-meter relay team.
What’s more, Ewaliko has won two championship belts in bull riding.
Here’s his story: Ewaliko video.
Also, after a telephone interview with UH coaches yesterday, defensive end Jordan Pu‘u-Robinson will be joining the Warriors. Last week, Pu‘u-Robinson received a release from his Washington State scholarship. He will have two years to play one season, although he will petition the NCAA for an exemption to play in 2012 without redshirting. Pu‘u-Robinson’s appeal is based on special family circumstances that necessitated his move back to Hawaii.
