Update on Caleb Dressler
The last sight of Caleb Dressler on this site was of him limping off the court in a playoff game of the Hawai’i College Basketball Summer League. The good news is, Dressler’s sprained ankle is almost fully recovered, and he should be able to join his teammates on the Hawai’i basketball team for pre-season workouts.
“Everything is pretty much back to normal, just having to do rehab every day to make sure it’s strong and healthy,” he said. “Still recovering. There’s little jolts of pain, but nothing compared to what it was.”
Dressler, a 6-foot-10 post player, is a true freshman – three months ago he was still a senior at Evergreen High School in Washington. He arrived in Honolulu six weeks ago to enroll in summer school courses and get a head start on his training for the upcoming season.
He said he did well in summer school, and is looking forward to the start of Fall classes on Monday.
Dressler and fellow freshman Isaac Fotu have been assigned to room together for this first semester.
“It’ll be good to get to know him, but also make sure that we both get to class on time, make sure we both get to workouts — kind of keep each other accountable, like a brother system,” he said.
The one thing Dressler has not done yet this summer is visit one of Hawai’i’s famous beaches. He said it is on his to-do list for this last weekend before classes start on Monday.
