Another RB in the transfer portal. No connection to Hawaii or Hawaii coaches tough.

Too bad we didn't get him. Didn't know he was from Memphis.

Even already with so many (potentially as many as 7) new incoming scholarship WRs (Zion Bowens, Quin Bright, Kilohana Haasenritter, Alonzell Henderson, Tamatoa Mokiao-Atimalala, Calvin Turner, Riley Wilson), UH is apparently still looking to bring in yet another new WR....Arkansas grad transfer WR Jordan Jones.

Not bad. Doesn't look like a real burner. Looks like a posession type. Graham must not be too impressed with the returning guys. Maybe Turner will become more of a RB.

got nothing to do with current players. As a coach you are always looking to better your team. No one knows who will play well when the lights go on. What it demonstrates to me is that he plans on winning now, he likes speed and he plans on throwing the ball. And he plans on throwing the ball this year, next year and the next year and the next year. The returning receivers know the run and shoot, the newer receivers are more air raid and spread type receivers and that means you will see some of both. There will be multiple packages (even a TE) to counter teams with different personnel and different defenses to take advantage of where each team has weaknesses. You will have receivers that are better at breaking press coverage and bigger receivers to take advantage smaller defenders. Opposing defenses will have a nightmare of a time preparing for our offense. We won't be a one trick pony. What we do need is a dual threat RB that can run routes and catch out of the backfield. If we get one we will be deadly.

Jones just committed to Cincinnati.
https://247sports.com/Article/Jordan-Jo ... 147198920/

Other than adding another RB (since only 3 RBs - Reed, Keli'iliki, Hunter - currently slated for the Fall roster), JMHO that another priority need is a DE/OLB speed edge rusher (since none were signed for 2020).....more so than another new WR.

JMHO that it shouldn't be a recruiting priority to add yet another new WR when there are already 8 returning WRs (Ealy, Mardner, Noa, Panoke, Phillips, Smart, Stovall, Victor) and 7 new incoming WRs (Bowens, Bright, Haasenritter, Henderson, Mokiao-Atimalala, Turner, Wilson) slated to be on the Fall roster. https://twitter.com/jordan10jones/status/1261794396481208321 https://twitter.com/chris_hummer/status/1261794522872324097

I know he seems like a longshot, but I suggested JT Daniels. He'd do better with us than he'd do at Michigan.

Even with redshirt frosh QB Zach Daniel leaving the team, I recall Graham stating in an interview that UH will typically recruit only 1 QB per recruiting class. With JC QB Armani Edden already committed for the 2020 Signing Class, it's highly doubtful that Graham would pursue another QB (even JT).

I anticipate some local walkons to mainland schools may consider moving back home, especially if their school goes online this fall
