Scott Harding, who played six seasons of professional Australian Rules Football, has decided to accept a future football scholarship from the Warriors.
He is expected to compete at slotback for UH, when he joins in January 2012.
Harding is about 5 feet 10, and has been clocked in the low 4.4s in the 40-yard dash. Scouts have likened Harding to former UH slotback Kealoha Pilares.
Because the Australian version is different from American football, he will have five yeas to play four NCAA seasons.
Harding is popular enough to have his own Wikipedia entry: Harding.

From former Warrior Daniel “Zulu” Otineru:
Talofa from Ft. Bragg, North Carolina! Just thought I’d share this picture of me and some of the other Samoan soldiers stationed here with Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling and the head of the President’s Advisory Commission on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, Aumua Amata.
also thought you might find this one interesting. Me and David Pa’aluhi with one of our buddys after our graduation from Airborne School at Ft. Benning, Georgia. We have been in training together since day 1 at basic and are still training together at Ft. Bragg.
