Will Tate Forcier go Hawaii 5-0?

Forcier jamming to "The Hawaiian Wedding Song?"
Time to add another school to the list of football programs that former Michigan quarterback Tate Forcier is looking to transfer to. Now it seems he's looking at Hawaii (Hawai'i, whatever) as a possible landing strip from his current holding pattern.

"Tate Forcier, one of the top "free-agent" quarterbacks in college football, has contacted the University of Hawaii football team.

According to people familiar with the situation, UH received a three-page letter from Forcier, including a copy of his scholarship release from Michigan, where he played the past two seasons."

The University of Hawaii would have obvious drawing power of a growing young man like Forcier. It might also be the perfect place to keep him away from the glaring eyes of the ever-watchful college football media/blogosphere. 

Mind you, Forcier will have to sit out a year, (unless he's found a Jeremiah Masoli-sized loophole). And Hawaii doesn't make the headlines like it did under former head football coach June Jones. But things might can work out for both parties.
