The Hawaii basketball team continues to upgrade its size significantly for the 2018-19 season, as the Rainbow Warriors got a commitment today from 7-foot center Dawson Carper of Rampart High School in Colorado Springs, Colo.

He joins two 6-foot-11 Australians in Mate Colina and Owen Hulland who are expected to sign during the upcoming early period (Nov. 8 to 15). They account for all of UH’s available scholarships for next season.

“This past week I thought a lot about it and realized that I want to be a part of the UH program and play for Hawaii,” Carper told the Star-Advertiser.

According to, in 25 games as a Rampart junior, Carper averaged 15.9 points, 7.8 rebounds and 1.4 blocked shots while shooting 63 percent from the field. He’s expected to be a featured player for his upcoming senior season.

On Wednesday, Hulland told the Star-Advertiser he committed to UH, following in the footsteps of his teammate Colina at the Australia Centre of Excellence in Canberra.
