The Rainbow Warriors will sign cornerback Deliyon Freeman and hybrid end Domata Peko on Wednesday, the first day football prospects may ink letters of intent this semester. They also have secured a 2024 commitment from edge defender Tristan Waiamau-Galindo.

Waiamau-Galindo is a 6-foot-3, 220-pound junior from Kamehameha Schools. He said he will graduate early, in December, and enroll at UH in January 2024. “I believe in the vision for the future, and the way Coach Chang is running things,” Waiamau-Galindo said.

Waiamau-Galindo said he trains under three former UH defensive linemen — Michael Lafaele, Beau Yap and Lance Samuseva. “Coach Mike trains me every single day,” Waiamau-Galindo said. “His knowledge really helps me succeed.”

He said he models his game after Kayvon Thibodeaux, an Oregon alumnus who plays linebacker for the New York Giants.

Of his early commitment, Waiamau-Galindo said: “I want to help Coach Chang build up my class. And I want to help Hawaii show we’re still great, and we can always be great, and encourage players to stay home.”

A soft verbal commit.....especially since it's still so early.

Hope that he likes what he sees and hears, and sticks to his verbal commitment.

Understandable given that his commitment announcement was so early (January 2023). UH is still probably in the mix (since his other offers are from Air Force, Idaho, Navy, Nevada & Weber State thus far).

Is it a scholarship or PWO?
