Report: Arizona backup NT transferring to Hawaii

Posted by ESPN.com's Ted Miller

My colleague Graham Watson caught this story from the Honolulu Advertiser: Arizona nose tackle Kaniela Tuipulotu, who started seven games last year, is transferring to Hawaii.

The 6-foot-2, 300-pound Tuipulotu had 12 tackles in 2008. He will sit out next year and have two years of eligibility for the Warriors.

Tuipulotu was listed as the No. 1 nose tackle for Arizona at the beginning of spring practices but he ended up No. 3 behind Donald Horton and Lolomana Mikaele on the post-spring depth chart.
