The Warriors are preparing for the home stretch in recruiting with about 15 visits planned for this coming weekend.
The guest list reportedly includes Shane Brostek of Hawaii Prep, Psalm Wooching of Kealakehe, Steven Lakalaka of Punahou, and Keoni Bush-Loo of Kamehameha.
Feb. 1 is the first day recruits may sign binding national letters of intent.
Give credit to the Warriors. They’re not afraid to ask.

Yes, that is quarterback Justin Alo on the Manoa campus.
Last February, Alo signed a scholarship agreement in which he would grayshirt. But it appeared Alo did not project to be eligible this year. Instead, Alo met the qualifications to enroll as a full-time UH student this semester. UH is honoring his scholarship offer.
Here’s a reminder: Justin Alo highlights.
The UH quarterbacks are David Graves, Cayman Shutter, Kevin Spain, Jeremy Higgins, Ikaika Woolsey, Taylor Graham and Alo. Graham, who transferred from the Ohio State, must sit out the 2012 season in accordance with NCAA transfer rules. Quarterback John Ursua of Utah’s Cedar High made an oral commitment to UH last week. Ursua also is being considered as a slotback.
Graves will enter spring training as the No. 1 quarterback.
