As is the case in recent years, large numbers of football players have transferred from one Hawaii high school to another this summer, and we are just scratching the surface of finding out who is where now.
Hawaii Prep World learned within the last week that two top players from the Neighbor Islands — Luca Vartic and Tristan Nichols — are now playing for Saint Louis.
Vartic, a 6-foot-1, 200-pound defensive back, played for Konawaena last season and he has FBS Division I scholarship offers from Hawaii, UNLV and Washington State.
Nichols is a 6-5, 245-pound tight end and defensive end who played for Maui a year ago.
The Crusaders scrimmage against Kapolei at 5:30 Thursday and follow up with a scrimmage against Kailua at 10 a.m. on the Saint Louis campus on Saturday.
