Hawaii might have a new coach, but the Warriors didn't miss a beat this weekend when it comes to recruiting. Hawaii landed two of the top players from its own backyard on Sunday.
Honolulu St. Louis Schoool defensive tackle Geordon Hanohano, who is 6-foot-1 and 270 pounds, and Honolulu Damien defensive tackle Haku Correa committed to the Warriors.
Hanohano is ranked by Rivals.com as the No. 3 player in Hawaii, and Correa is ranked as the No. 5 player.

Both prospects are ranked as there-star recruits.
"I felt like the Hawaii coaches believe in me, I trust them and trust that they can take me to the next level," Correa said.
Hanohano said he felt best by staying in-state with his commitment.
"I wanted to represent Hawaii well, and there is no better way to do it than playing for UH," he said. "I'm happy to be going to UH and to be a Warrior".
Correa was a first-team all-state, Division II selection in the Honolulu Advertiser and third-team all-state in the Honolulu Star Bulletin. Hanohano was named first-team all-state by both local papers.
Hanohano picked Hawaii over offers from Arizona, San Diego State, Washington and New Mexico State. Correa turned down offers from Arizona, Colorado, San Diego State and Utah.
