Hawaii pulls DB from the Sunshine State

Safety / cornerback Barry Higdon (Hollywood, Fla./Chaminade-Madonna) pledged Saturday to ink with the Warriors, according to multiple reports.

The 6-foot-2, 185-pound senior selected Hawaii over scholarship offers from Akron, Bowling Green and Toledo. He also received interest from Ole Miss and Western Kentucky.

Higdon is Hawaii's first 2013 high school verbal from the state of Florida. The Warriors signed a pair of Sunshine State defensive backs in 2012.
