Quarterback Corey Nielsen is not on the Warriors’ preliminary training-camp roster.
Instead, he will join the team Aug. 23, the first day of UH’s fall semester, when the training-camp roster may expand from 105 players.
Bryant Moniz, Shane Austin, Brent Rausch, David Graves, Cayman Shutter and Kevin Spain are the quarterbacks on the training-camp roster.
Nielsen, who is on scholarship, has gained about 10 pounds while training in Southern California. Next week, he will work out with Ryan Grice-Mullins, a former UH slotback now with the Miami Dolphins.

Former UH safety Leonard Peters has been promoted to the top U.S. rugby team. He is back in Hawaii for a couple of weeks before resuming training.

Sad to hear about the death of Chief Justice Richardson. He was a good man, as well as a passionate UH fan.
Personal note: I used to be his chauffeur during UH basketball road trips. He also served as justice for the renewal of wedding vows.
He’ll be missed.
