Welch had seven scholarship offers and chose Navy over Air Force, Army, Hawaii, Nevada, Syracuse and Vanderbilt.
Navy currently lists three players from Hawaii on its roster, WR/RB Keoni-Kordell Makekau (‘Iolani), OL Adam Amosa-Tagovailoa (Campbell) and defensive lineman Alema Kapoi (Kamehameha).
Also today, Kahuku offensive lineman Micah Mariteragi, who is 6-foot-4 and 265 pounds, announced his commitment to Virginia on Twitter. The Cavaliers were the first school to offer Mariteragi last week.
