  05/04/21 - Calvin TurnerrSr/2022, Hawaii, 6-0, 195 (DS#76 RB) + More +

  With no players with Hawaii ties getting selected in the NFL Draft for the first time since 2018, UH running back Calvin Turner is primed to make sure it doesn't happen again in 2022. Turner was eligible for the 2021 NFL Draft but decided to remain in school for his second senior season, with a goal of raising his draft stock higher this fall. Following Hawaii's spring game on Friday in which Turner was the team's top offensive performer with 147 yards from scrimmage, both the star running back and 'Bows head coach Todd Graham agreed that a spring practice to install new concepts has benefitted his repertoire greatly. "It gave us a time to get more comfortable with each other and know what everyone can do," Turner said of spring ball. "Last year we were literally thrown into the fire, we didn't know what players could do. I felt like it helped a lot, having these practices and building that team camaraderie and being together and just having that time together."

Turner, who was a quarterback at Jacksonville University for three years, has lined up at running back, receiver, wildcat quarterback, and kick and punt returner during his time with the Rainbow Warriors. "Calvin is special, he's a special playmaker," Graham said. "He can be as special a player as I've ever coached...He's deceptively fast. It's hard to put exactly what his skillset is. He is the best combination of a receiver/running back hybrid that I've ever been around. He is very, very explosive. We're very fortunate to have him. There's not a player in our league that I think that's more explosive and I believe he's one of the most explosive players in the country. - Honolulu Advertiser

  Former University of Hawaii wide receiver Rico Bussey has signed an undrafted free deal with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Bussey's best college season came in 2018, back when he caught 68 passes for 1,012 yards and 12 touchdowns for UNT. In 2021, no players with Hawaii ties were selected in the NFL Draft for the first time since 2018. - Honolulu Advertiser

  The University of Hawaii football team will return to the field on Thursday as the Rainbow Warriors plan to hold spring practice for five weeks.

  01/04/21 - Calvin TurnerrSr/2022, Hawaii, 6-0, 195 (DS#76 RB) + More +

  Calvin Turner only played nine games in a Hawaii football uniform in 2020, but he sure made them count. After an electrifying season and speculation of an immediate pro future, he announced on Saturday via his social media that he will remain in Manoa after considering entering his name in the 2021 NFL Draft. Turner was originally signed as a graduate transfer slotback from Jacksonville University by former UH head Nick Rolovich in December 2019. After finding a role as a running back, receiver and kick returner for Todd Graham in his first year at the helm in Manoa, he had a tantalizing 2020 season in which he had 1,201 all-purpose yards and 11 touchdowns in nine games. Turner was a quarterback at Jacksonville. - khon2.com

  12/24/20 - Chevan CordeirorJr/2023, Hawaii, 6-0, 190 (DS#47 QB) + More +

  Chevan Cordeiro threw three first-half touchdown passes and Calvin Turner had two long scoring plays to help Hawaii beat Houston 28-14 on Thursday in the New Mexico Bowl. The game was moved to Frisco from its usual location in Albuquerque because of COVID-19 restrictions in New Mexico. Hawaii (5-4) gave first-year coach Todd Graham his 100th career victory. He previously coached at Rice, Tulsa, Pittsburgh and Arizona State.

The Rainbow Warriors had a winning record for the third season in a row, the first time they've done that since 2001-04. Houston (3-5) has consecutive losing seasons for the first time since 2000-02. Cordeiro completed 15 of 23 passes for 136 yards and had eight carries for 33 yards. - AP College Football
