AhSoon moving to guard and other updates

About moving Keith AhSoon to guard, OL coach Brian Smith said:
“We’re going to give him the first go at left guard. If for some reason he doesn’t pick it up there, we can move him back.” (HSB)

HSB Note: “Either way, it will be crowded at left tackle. Ray Hisatake, Aaron Kia and Laupepa Letuli will get plenty of spring reps there.”

About the competition at LT, Smith said:
“We’ll try to find the best of those three to play there. We want to create some competition.”

HSB Note: “The rest of the first line to start camp includes All-WAC performer John Estes at center, Lafu Tuioti-Mariner at right guard, and returning starter Keoni Steinhoff at right tackle. Coach Greg McMackin has stressed that nothing is set — except, perhaps, Estes at center — and the starting lineups could look a lot different Aug. 30 at Florida than they will Monday at the Manoa grass practice field.”

About how LWJ and Libre are both considered first string at RB, Ron Lee said:
“Put a slash between their names. Same thing with Dave (Farmer) and Mario (Cox) as the second group.” (HSB)

HSB Note: “Lee said Libre and Wright-Jackson will both see some duty at slotback this spring, but not extensively. Cox wasn’t even on the team a few weeks ago, serving a second suspension for not meeting off-field team standards. But the talented junior had a sit-down with McMackin, and so far Cox has done what is necessary to be a candidate for playing time in the fall.”

About Mario Cox, Ron Lee said:
“I want him to get reps. He might be in contention here.” (HSB)
