Punahou senior offensive lineman Alama Uluave holds the most Division I college scholarship offers in the class of 2018 for an uncommitted player from Hawaii.

The 6-foot-3, 285-pound Uluave added to that list on Wednesday, landing his 11th offer overall.

It came from the Mountain West.

San Diego State joined a list that includes Air Force, Army, Boise State, Colorado State, Fresno State, Hawaii, Syracuse, Texas Tech, UNLV, Washington State.

Waianae’s Kana’i Mauga (USC), Kapolei’s Kukea Emmsley (Boise State) and Kahuku’s Samson Reed (Virginia) have already committed.

The top five uncommitted players from Hawaii ranked by offers held are Uluave, Pearl City’s Zion Tupuola-Fetui (eight), Saint Louis’ Isaiah Tufaga and Kamehameha’s Jonah Welch (seven) and Kapolei’s Aaron Faumui (six).

All eight players named are expected to play in the 2018 Polynesian Bowl in January.
