We have Brandon Connette  and I believe a DB transfer from Arizona -Harper. Anybody else ? San Diego State is pretty impressive with 3 4 star transfers. Wondered why they transferred if they were truly 4 star it should not be for lack of playing time.

A lot of these guys were sitting on the depth chart behind other 4 and 5 star recruits.  Some of them were overrated and some of them just got beat out by someone with more talent.  If you look at the recruiting boards of some of the big time schools and see who they've recruited over that last 4 years, you will sometimes find a lot of 4 star players that share the same position.  There's just not enough room for all that talent and they all want to be the starter.

You have to wonder how good these guys are if they are flocking to Hawaii.  Is Hawaii the only place that will have them?  If not for the beaches and sun, it's almost like trying to get on with Idaho and teh Kibbie Dome; just doesn't make sense to me.

Some kids just don't pan out...for a variety of reasons.  Fan Board stars that were assigned 2+ years ago mean nothing.  They mean little with then kids coming out of school let alone after the same kid has flamed out at his original school.

Interesting to see the Shirley kid going to UH.

Could just be that they want playing time, and or they don't get along with the head/position coach. Some guys also realize that a big name school in a big city aren't always best. Some guys just want to get closer to home. Ex. LeBron

An article on Shirley said he wants to place close to Home. He is eligible this year as he has graduated. Was a rush DE at Washington

Hawaii is further from his home than Seattle, originally from Corona IIRC

Fontana but your point is still valid.  UH is hardly a close to home move.
