From Doris Sullivan:
UH has offered Kalua Noa a greyshirt/full scholarship offer for Jan 2009.
Kalua has been speaking to UH for a while but with no scholie he had decided
to go the JC route. When Portland State came into the picture just yesterday
coaches discussed it and didnt want to lose him, and the offer to Kalua came
this afternoon. His response was “yes, yes, I want it, yes, Ill take it”
Parents are very excited as well.

My main man, Stephen Tsai, allowed me to use his blog to talk about the Major League Baseball Draft. Sorry to disappoint all you football followers.
Will try to keep you updated when someone with Hawai‘i ties gets picked. But that might be hours from now, as no one is expected to be picked in the first seven rounds.
Unlike football and basketball, you will not recognize most of the 1,400-plus names that will go off the draft tracker on MLB.com. You can watch the first round on ESPN2.
Let’s wish all the guys with ties to Hawai‘i well.
