CB Kalani Brackenridge, RB John Lister, and DE Bon Jon Watts commit to the Warriors!

About playing shortstop for UH’s baseball team as well as CB for the Warriors, Brackenridge said that he look forward to being able to play the two sports:
“in front of my family and friends.” (HA)

HA Note: “Brackenridge is 5 feet 11 and 165 pounds. Kapolei coach Darren Hernandez said Brackenridge can cover 40 yards in 4.5 seconds.”

HA Note: “Brackenridge is a member of an athletic family. His father, Lyle Brackenridge, was a baseball player in the Los Angeles Dodgers’ and Minnesota Twins’ organizations. His brother, Tyron Brackenridge, is a cornerback who recently signed with the New York Jets.”

About the offer from UH, Brackenridge said:
“It’s a blessing.” (HA)

About how Brackenridege moved to Oahu in the spring of his sophomore year, Kapolei head football coach Hernandez said:
“He played baseball, and he was a star there.” (HA)

About Brackenridge’s ability at CB, Hernandez said:
“This kid has really good cover skills. He’s fast, and he can really jump. He has a 36-inch vertical. He has all of the measurables.” (HA)

HA Note: “Hernandez predicted that Brackenridge’s “best football is ahead of him.” Because football is considered to be the dominant financial sport, Brackenridge’s scholarship will be in football even though he also will compete as a middle infielder. Brackenridge turned down football offers from Wyoming, Utah State and Idaho because those schools do not compete in baseball.”

About how he was a catcher on the 2004 Little League team that won the US championship, Lister said:
“It was a great experience for a 12-year-old to be on (national) television. It was fun. I got a little taste of being part of a high-media sport.” (HA)

HA Note: “Lister is 6 feet 1 1/2 and 210 pounds. He ran 40 yards in a laser-timed 4.49 seconds.”

About choosing UH over offers from Nevada and UNLV, Lister said:
“I loved it out there. I love the coaches. They’ve got a good thing going there. They’ve got a good football team. They’re going to win the WAC, and I want to be a part of it.” (HA)

HA Note: “Watts, who is 6-2 and 225 pounds, is capable of running 40 yards in 4.56 seconds and benching 360 pounds.”

About being raised in Gainesville, Florida, Watts said:
“I’m from the Swamp.” (HA)

HA Note: “Watts said he moved to California at the invitation of a friend. He said Lametrius Davis, a UH cornerback and former Butte teammate, was influential in him choosing the Warriors.”

About choosing UH, Watts referred to Lametrius Davis when he said:
“I really like the program. The coaches are really nice. And I have a good friend out here. It’s a good fit.” (HA)
