The Warriors are committed to using a tight end this season, but there’s now some flexibility with the 11th offensive position.
The Warriors had hoped to use a fullback — which, like the tight end — was absent from their offense the previous 14 seasons. Inside receiver Scott Harding and running back Will Gregory are providing other options.
Harding has been one of the Warriors’ most consistent receivers in spring training. The Warriors are open to employing a three-receiver set featuring two wide receivers, a tight end, Harding as an inside receiver and running back Joey Iosefa.
Dustin Elisara, a converted defensive lineman, has been practicing as the No. 1 fullback. Iosefa is considered the Warriors’ best back, and with the emergence of Gregory, there is possibility both could be used in the same backfield. They could be in a split-back set, or Iosefa could serve as a power back with Gregory as the speed back.
Head coach Norm Chow said he wants to craft a role for the Gregory, who redshirted as a freshman in 2011.
“I had to redshirt because I couldn’t get the blocking down,” Gregory said, a reference to the primary role of the running back in last year’s four-wide offense.
Now the speedy Gregory can be used strictly as a running back in the newly implemented pro-set offense.
“I was at the right place at the right time,” Gregory said.
Gregory also can be used in tough-yards situations. He said he has gained 20 pounds, and now weighs 210.
“This offense is cool,” Gregory said. “I’m learning every day.”

Former UH safety Mike Wadsworth was unsuccessful in his appeal for a waiver allowing him to enroll at BYU.
Wadsworth was a top specialist as a UH freshman in 2009. He then went on a two-year church mission to England.
He requested a release from UH that would allow him to transfer to another school. UH agreed to release him to any school but BYU. Wadsworth appealed, but the ruling was upheld.
