Colton Goeas, a 2013 Saint Louis School graduate and former Kansas linebacker, is set to join the Warriors this fall. But whether he will be eligible to play this coming season is awaiting a ruling from the NCAA.
Goeas is petitioning for an exemption to a rule requiring a transferring player to establish one-year, full-time “residency” at his new school before being eligible to play. Goeas was at Kansas for the 2013 and 2014 seasons before moving back to Hawaii to work on his grades.
He took online classes through Kansas during the 2015 fall semester, then worked — and worked out — the past spring semester. He has gained admission into UH for the 2016-2017 academic year.
“It’s worth a try,” his father, former UH player Leo Goeas, said of the petition.
IF the petition is denied, Colton Goeas would join the Warriors at the start of the fall semester and redshirt this season. After that, he would have a season of eligibility remaining.
The elder Goeas said his son is 6 feet 2 and 243 pounds. Colton Goeas projects to compete at middle linebacker or defensive end.
