Reynolds likes UH; 2 players commit
Korey Reynolds left Hawaii yesterday, but there's a good chance he'll be back.
"Hawaii's definitely at the top of my list," the 6-foot-3, 250-pound defensive lineman said in a telephone interview from Honolulu International Airport after his recruiting visit with the UH football team.
It's a long list. Reynolds, who played for Hoover High in Alabama, also has offers from Houston, Southern Mississippi, Illinois and Ole Miss. Alabama and Auburn are also trying to get Reynolds, but both schools want him to grayshirt.
"I really like it here," Reynolds said about UH. "They make you feel like you're part of their family. That's the impression I get from interaction with the players.
"I'll be going back to Alabama and talk it over with my family."
Reynolds, whose father played football for Virginia Tech, watched the Hawaii-Alabama game last fall and took a liking to the Warriors' program then.
Two players gave Hawaii oral commitments yesterday -- cornerback Ryan Mouton from Blinn College in Texas and offensive lineman Matagisila Lefiti of Mater Dei High in California.
Mouton, who is 5-10 and 185 pounds, flew back to Texas yesterday and planned on discussing his decision with his family.
Lefiti, who is 6-2 and 280 pounds, also started at defensive tackle for Mater Dei -- the same school that produced UH quarterback Colt Brennan.
