Destin Stewart, a wideout from Douglass High in Tulsa, met the NCAA requirements to play for the Warriors this season.
But UH and Tulsa have different standards, and he did not gain admittance to Manoa.
The Warriors were forced to release Stewart from the letter of intent he signed in February.
Stewart is now enrolled at Tulsa, and will play for the Golden Hurricane this season.

In an e-mail to UH alumni, Manoa chancellor Virginia Hinshaw had this to say about the athletic department:
We definitely feel beat-up by the economic downturn, certainly increasing the challenges for our Athletic Department to generate 85% of its own funding — a high expectation for any athletics program but especially for one with our travel costs and no revenue-generating stadium.
Yet we are upbeat about celebrating the 100th anniversary of UH athletics this year – a century of exciting sports teams that have generated wonderful experiences and connections with our community, along with strong public-private partnerships like the new Ching field and upcoming athletic complex, and, most importantly, impressive alumni like our new Miss Hawai‘i, former Rainbow Wahine Raeceen Woolford. We certainly welcome your participation in our exciting centennial and homecoming events this coming year.
