Charles Tuaau, a former Leilehua High defensive end, said he will turn down Pac-12 offers to join the Warriors in January.
Tuaau was named to the 2009 All-State second team. He signed with UH in 2010, but did not meet the requirements to play for the Warriors that year. Instead, he played at Pasadena City College, where he had 17 backfield tackles, including five sacks, in 2010.
He redshirted last year after transferring to Riverside College.
Tuaau said he will play for Riverside this season, complete work on an associate degree in December, and join the Warriors in January.

Mike Andrade, a defensive tackle from Konawaena High, said he signed a scholarship agreement with the Warriors yesterday morning.
Andrade was set to sign with the Warriors in February. But he needed to fulfill some requirements before the letter of intent could be approved. Andrade met the requirements, but after the April 1 deadline to sign a letter of intent. Instead, he signed a scholarship agreement, which locks the school into securing a scholarship for him.
