Rainbow Warriors Sign Multi-Talented Guard

HONOLULU – The University of Hawai’i men’s basketball team has added the first player to its 2020-21 recruiting class with the signing Beon Riley. Riley, a 6-6, 235-pound guard will join the team next season and will have four years of eligibility.

“We’re extremely excited to welcome Beon to our program,” head coach Eran Ganot said. “He’s a very physical, competitive, and versatile player who has the chance to make an immediate impact on our team.”

Riley displayed an all-around game in his first two years of high school at Mater Dei Catholic High School in Chula Vista, Calif., where he averaged 15.4 points, 6.7 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 1.5 steals per game as a two-year starter. He earned a spot on the all-Metro League first-team as a both a freshman and sophomore and was named San Diego County’s Freshman of the Year in 2017. He was also named second-team all-CIF San Diego section team as a sophomore. 

He did not play as a junior in 2018-19 due to CIF transfer rules after moving from Mater Dei Catholic to Cathedral Catholic High School. Riley plays club basketball for Dream Vision.

“With his strong character and work ethic, Beon embodies everything that we look for in a student-athlete here at the University of Hawai‘i,” Ganot added. “It’s a great day for our program and we couldn’t be more happy for Beon and his family.”
