More about London Sapolul choosing UH over Tennessee

Happy that London will play for UH, Jesse Sapolu said:
“I’m excited to see one of my sons play for the school I committed to.” (HSB)

HSB Note: “A highly recruited prospect coming out of Farrington in 1979, Jesse Sapolu was all set to continue his career at Arizona State. But a last-minute change of heart led him to stay close to home.”

London said that he picked UH over Tennessee because of:
“being around family and being in a situation where I’m comfortable.” (HSB)

HSB Note: “London Sapolu played offensive line at Costa Mesa (Calif.) High School, but switched to defensive tackle last year. He plans to cross over again this season to play either center or guard at Orange Coast, where he’s coached by former NFL center Doug Smith.”

About how his Dad is helping him to learn to play OL, London said:
“I have my dad teaching me and my offensive line coach helping me now. Playing offensive line is) more technical and more controlled than on defense.” (HSB)

HSB Note: “Another of Jesse’s sons, Roman, will be a senior at Edison High School in Huntington Beach, Calif., and has committed to Oregon State. But Jesse Sapolu said Roman hasn’t closed the process just yet and plans to take his recruiting trips.”
