Norm Chow and the Warriors landed a transfer Linebacker to the team on Sunday, as Hawaiian native Colton Goeas is returning home to the islands after two years at Kansas. He will redshirt in 2015 per NCAA transfer rules, and have two years of eligibility remaining.

Goeas, who checks in at 6 feet 2, 240 pounds, didn't see any game action in 2014, and redshirted in 2013. He's the son of Leo Goeas, a former Warriors lineman who played eight years in the NFL with the Chargers, Rams, and Ravens.

Due to his size, similar to former Warriors RB Joey Iosefa, Goeas could be looked at to play running back in his time at Hawaii. As a Sophomore at Lewis-Palmer High in Colorado, he rushed for over 1,400 yards and 20 touchdowns, landing a spot on Colorado's 4-A All-state team. He would then move to Hawaii, where he would switch to linebacker.

A three-star recruit as ranked by Rivals and Scout.com, Goeas chose Kansas over Hawaii, UCLA, Washington State, and Tennessee.
