Hawaii has always been a choice of interest from big time players who are not too happy with their current situation. The latest is LSU Tigers sophomore quarterback Stephen Rivers who has had contact with Hawaii, through a third-party, about finishing his final two years of eligibility with the Hawaii program.
Rivers is the younger brother San Diego Chargers quarterback Phillip Rivers, and his intent to transfer is because he is behind the depth chart of freshman Anthony Jennings. If Hawaii does land Rivers he is able to play right away since he is graduating this spring.
It has been well-documented of the struggles that Hawaii has had in the quarterback position this past year, and even further. Rivers is a former three-star quarterback out of high school, but has not had the chance to prove his worth on the field at LSU.
Hawaii is quickly becoming crowded at the quarterback position and Rivers decision about going to Hawaii could depend on what soon-to-be former USC quarterback Max Wittek who has plans to visit Hawaii. Like Rivers, Wittek is eligible to play right away and with two years of eligibility.
Plus, there is a mystery third quarterback who could be transferring, according to Stephen Tsai of the Honolulu Star-Advertiser.
