When the clock struck “0:00” last night, the offseason officially began for the Warriors.
The Warriors’ active roster expands. As UH coach Norm Chow said: “The redshirts are no longer redshirts.” Quarterbacks Taylor Graham and Ikaika Woolsey, running back Steven Lakalaka, offensive lineman Leo Koloamatangi, defensive linemen Iuta Tepa and Mike Andrade, and cornerback Brian Clay are officially in the race for playing time.
The UH coaches, who had spent a large part of their time recruiting, will be focused solely on that area through the first Wednesday in February. Some of the coaches leave tonight for two-week recruiting trips. The targets: Linemen, receivers, corners.
Oh, and UH will need to find another punter and long-snapper.
