Warrior head coach Greg McMackin announced that the school’s Junior Day has been rescheduled to Saturday, April 16, the day after the Warrior Bowl. It was previously scheduled for for April 2.
The event is, basically, an open house for high school juniors who are considered to be college-football prospects. The guest list consists of players recommended by their high school coaches. Parents and guardians are encouraged to accompany the players.
The players/parents will tour the campus, and meet with academic counselors, coaches and former players. Because this is considered an unofficial visit, parents/players must pay for their meals on campus.

He said he hopes to begin practicing March 28, the first practice after spring break. UH will practice for two weeks, beginning next Wednesday, then take go on hiatus for spring break.
With Jordan Gomes recovering from knee surgery, more spring reps at safety will go to Kamalani Alo, who played well on special teams in the 2010 regular-season finale against UNLV. Richard Torres has secured one of the safety jobs, and Kenny Estes will get a lot of work at the other spot this spring. John Hardy-Tuliau, who played the nickleback-like position known as quarter as a freshman last year, was supposed to move to safety. But with the development of several players there, as well as the signing of Brandon Leslie, Hardy-Tuliau will get a look at corner this spring.
