I spoke with Kainoa LaCount a few minutes ago. He said he will remain on the mainland at College of the Canyons (Calif.) to complete work on his associate’s degree the next couple of months.
He said he has two classes remaining, and plans to arrive in Hawaii in time for the start of fall camp.
The 6-foot-7, 290-pound Kailua High graduate was recruited by Pac-10 schools and is considered a key member of UH’s 2008 class of incoming players. He is expected to contend for a starting spot at one of the tackles, but it was hoped he’d be back in the islands sooner.
Re UH Warriors’ question below: Kainoa said he doesn’t expect to be back in Hawaii until the end of July, near the start of camp. So I guess they either have one session that ends around that time, or he has to go to second session for some reason.
