Former Mililani offensive lineman Andru Tovi, who made second team All-State as a senior in 2014, will play at Kansas this upcoming season.

Tovi, who is 6-foot-3 and 310 pounds, originally committed to Utah State out of high school before playing two seasons at Pima Community College.

The school announced today that Tovi has accepted a scholarship offer from the Jayhawks.

According to the release, Tovi played in eight games at right guard as a sophomore and graded out at 94 percent.

“Kansas came to us and asked if we had any offensive-linemen, which is a rarity at this time,” Pima coach Jim Monaco said in a press release. “They watched his film and thought he would start immediately for them. I told Andru he needed to go and he couldn’t pass up a full ride. Andru was ready to go at any time. He thought Pima was a great place. He was a great team leader.”

Arizona, Arizona State and Fresno State also showed interest in Tovi, according to the release that you can read here.
