High school guard Leland Green said he will fax his letter of intent to the University of Hawaii “sometime today” as the Rainbow Warriors’ first signee of the signing period.
Wednesday’s opening day of the regular signing period came and went without an announcement of signings by UH.
Green, a 6-foot, 2-inch shooting guard from Redondo Union (Calif.) High, verbally committed to UH last month and said he signed the binding document Wednesday as part of signing day ceremonies at the high school, but was waiting to fax it to UH assistant coach Chris Acker.
Guard Drew Buggs of Long Beach (Calif.) Poly High and Australian point guard Matt Owies signed with UH in the November early signing period.
With the addition of Green, UH will have five scholarships remaining.
Green said he saw “a great opportunity to step right in” at UH, where four players have announced they will not return for the 2016-‘17 season.
Green averaged 14.4 points, two assists and 1.7 steals per game as a senior.
