After getting shut out in Hawaii in the past two years, the Oregon Ducks are rebuilding their Hawaiian pipeline.
Kapolei defensive lineman Maceal Afaese became the second prospect from the islands in the class of 2020 to commit to the Ducks in 11 days, announcing his decision via social media today.

Afaese chose the Ducks out of an offer sheet of 13 schools: Arizona, Arizona State, BYU, Colorado, Hawaii, Kansas State, Nebraska, Oregon State, Tennessee, Texas Tech, Utah State, Virginia and Oregon.
The 6-foot-5, 250-pound Afaese is rated as the No. 6 prospect in the class of 2020 from Hawaii by 247Sports.
Earlier this month, Farrington offensive lineman Faaope Laloulu announced his commitment to the Ducks.
Although Oregon hasn’t landed a Hawaii high school senior in the last two years, Kalani alum Sione Vea signed with the Ducks out of junior college in 2018 and former Kapolei standout Treven Ma’ae, who transferred to Bishop Gorman for his senior season, signed with Oregon in December.
Afaese is now the 13th senior to have committed to a Division I school before the start of the school year.
