It’s not official in terms of a scholarship offer, but the Alabama Crimson Tide have their eyes on another local prospect.
Kaimuki football coach David Tautofi said that the defending national champions have been pushing for a visit by two-way lineman Sama Paama.
“What Alabama is trying to do is get him to go visit them,” Tautofi said. “Sama is top three nationally on their list (at his position). They wanted him to go up and visit (unofficially) in the summer, but we were too busy.”
Paama committed to Washington in April. This week, he said he will not take any of the five official visits permitted by the NCAA. The 6-foot-4, 355-pound senior also has offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Hawaii, Nebraska, Oregon, USC, Utah and Virginia.
Here’s Paama talking about his commitment to the Huskies.
