Elijah Tupa’i, a lineman from Utah’s Cottonwood High, told the Warrior Beat he has accepted a football scholarship from the Warriors.
Tupa‘i is 6 feet 4 and 255 pounds.
He is projected to compete at offensive tackle, although he also could be on the defensive line.
“Wherever they need me, I’ll play,” Tupa‘i said.
Tupa‘i also received offers from BYU, Utah, Utah State and San Diego State. He has notified those coaches that he will be accepting the UH offer.
Here’s his highlight video (from 2011): Tupa‘i video.
