Ipulasi Eselu commits to the Warriors!

About choosing UH, Moanalua High’s Ipulasi Eselu said:
“I thought about it, and I’m going to be a Warrior. My family is here. They can come and support me.” (HA)

HA Note: “Eselu said he is 6 feet 2 and 200 pounds. Moanalua head coach Arnold Martinez said Eselu was used as a stand-up end, essentially an outside linebacker, but projects to play defensive end in college.”

About using Eselu at OLB, Moanalua heach coach Arnold Martinez said:
“We needed a strong outside backer, and he was the first candidate. He was easy to coach there. And I think it helped his footwork. He was able to cover (pass) routes.” (HA)

HA Note: “His older brother, Savaii Eselu, is a tight end for California.”

Expecting Eselu to keep growing, Martinez said:
“I think he’s going to grow. His brother is 6-5, and his dad is huge.” (HA)

Praising Eselu’s playing style, Martinez said:
“He doesn’t take a play off. For me, it’s a blessing to coach him. His dad and his family did a great job with him. That starts in the home.” (HA)

About how he was raised as a Warrior fan, looking up to Tim Chang and Chad Owens, Eselu said:
“They were inspirations. They did very well for the state. They made us look real good.” (HA)

Martinez praised Eselu as:
“an awesome kid. He tries very hard to do well academically. He’s not a guy you have to babysit. When he’s not studying or in class, he’s with us. He’s going to listen, and he’s going to work hard. He has a very high football IQ. He picks up the theory of whatever we’re trying to accomplish. It’s almost like having another coach on the field.” (HA)

About how Frank Loyd was also committed to UH from Moanalua, Martinez said:
“They’re both very good players.” (HA)
