That’s how someone who has seen both play a lot described T.J. Alofipo, UH’s latest recruiting commitment. He sounds like the real deal. Big, strong, athletic and good speed.
One of his many scholarship offers was from Army, so that makes me assume he’s smart, too.
If UH can also secure commitments from his other highly-regarded teammates at Silverado High School (Henderson, Nev.) — defensive end Keenan Graham and free safety Michael Wadsworth — the Warriors could have a huge head start on rebuilding their defense which will be hit hard by graduation after this year.
Tony Tuioti — the former UH defensive tackle who recently joined the Warriors staff — was the defensive coordinator at Silverado, which played in the state championship game last year.
