UH gets a commitment from a punter from Australia!

HSB Note: “Alex Dunnachie, a 6-foot-3, 215-pound punter from Australia, has orally committed to join the Warriors next season, and figures to help fill the void left by the departure of senior Tim Grasso. Dunnachie’s background is in Australian Rules Football, and he is still learning the American style of kicking. Dunnachie was on his way to California to attend the Ray Guy/Prokick.com Academy’s camp in Walnut Creek yesterday.”

About Dunnachie, Ray Guy/Prokick.com Academy camp director Rick Sang said:
“He looks like a major college tight end. He’s very talented. He’s got natural power, he’s got a really strong leg. … He’s a raw talent, and he’s getting better.” (HSB)

HSB Note: “Sang said Dunnachie worked under Nathan Chapman, who runs a kicking program in Australia, and his distance figures to improve as he refines his technique. Hawaii had success with an Australian punter in the past. Mat McBriar finished his UH career second in school history with an average of 42.22 yards per kick before going on to an NFL career with the Dallas Cowboys. Sang said Dunnachie’s leg strength compares favorably with McBriar and Shane Lechler of the Oakland Raiders.”
