2015 JUCO OL Commits To Hawaii

L.A. Piece OL Antonio Flowers (6-5, 320) informed JCFootball.com that he has committed to play for Hawaii this fall...

"Coach Abe (Hawaii secondary coach Abe Elimimian) yelled out that I committed to the coaching staff while I was on the phone with him and I was extremely happy," an excited Flowers told JCFootball.com.

Hawaii only came in recently with an offer while Flowers was entertaining full rides from several FCS programs including Campbell, Florida A&M, Lamar, Murray State, Nicholls State and Southeastern Louisiana.

Flowers had also been hearing from Appalachian State, Eastern Michigan and North Texas, but none of those schools had stepped forward with an offer.

Flowers said he plans to take an official visit to Hawaii on May 2nd for the Warriors' spring football game.

As a redshirt freshman, Flowers started at four of the offensive line positions, making him one of the more versatile offensive line prospects still left on the board.

"I played guard and tackle and I played on both the left and the right side," Flowers told JCFootball.com last month. "I played it all."

As a prep, Flowers enjoyed a solid four years at Panther Creek High School in Cary, North Carolina, but he was unable to qualify for a scholarship to a four-year program.

"I only played my senior year of football and last year was my first time ever playing offensive line, so I think I needed to go JC anyway," Flowers said. "(Pierce) has a reputation of getting guys to the FBS level, so I took a chance and booked a one way ticket."

Floweres will finish up his two-year degree this May and he will have three years to play three starting this fall.
