    Good luck to him with all the recuiritng the ILH schools do. He won’t be left with much to form a roster.
    I thought he had originally verballed to play for UH. Him and another Pake surnamed Samoan from Moanalua. I think Tang was the last name.

    Tang never made grades so he didn’t attend UH.
