TE Commits to Warriors

Honolulu (HawaiiNewsNow) –  Norm Chow's first recruiting class at the University of Hawaii continues to grow.

The father of tight end Ethan Watanabe told Hawaii News Now that his son has given a verbal commitment to play for the Warriors in 2012.

Watanabe is in Hawaii on his official recruiting trip with the Warriors.

Ethan played for William Brennan H.S. in San Antonio, Texas and was recruited by Utah.

His highlight reel (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vW3qgThNDW0) shows a tough blocker with a mean streak.

Ethan's father (Chad) is a native of Oahu and said his son is excited to play near family.
