Colton Goeas — a Saint Louis School graduate and son of former NFL player Leo Goeas — is transferring from Kansas to UH.
Goeas, who is 6 feet 2 and 240 pounds, was the backup to inside linebacker Ben Heeney, the past season. Goeas redshirted in 2013.
Goeas will redshirt in 2015 as a condition of transferring. After that, he will have two years to play two UH seasons.
There is a possibility Goeas could be as a running back, in the style of UH graduate Joey Iosefa. As a sophomore at Lewis-Palmer High, Goeas rushed for 1,477 yards and 20 touchdowns. He was named to Colorado’s 4-A all-state first team. He then moved to Honolulu, where he started at linebacker for Saint Louis.
Leo Goeas, a former UH lineman, played eight NFL seasons.
