Only four players in the senior class from Hawaii have more offers.

Buelow is the fourth player from Hawaii to commit to Washington in the class of 2019, joining Kahuku linebacker Miki Ah You, Kaimuki defensive lineman Sama Paama and Punahou kicker Tim Horn.

The Huskies are also in the running for Saint Louis defensive tackle Faatui Tuitele, who has Washington in his final five along with Alabama, Clemson, Ohio State and Texas.

Washington is in the top eight for Kahuku offensive lineman Enokk Vimahi along with Nebraska, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Ole Miss, UCLA, Virginia and USC.

Buelow was a Star-Advertiser All-State third-team selection as a junior.

    Project but can’t teach size and strength. UW under Peterson has a strong hx of significantly improving performance for the next level. He can be another Lincoln Kennedy.

    Hernandez always does a good job promoting the Kapolei kids! I give him credit for that, but non of them really materialized and developed into the players Hernandez said they were going to be! Yeah he has the size but, I’ve watched him play enough and here is my evaluation.
    This kid need to play basketball more and improve his lateral movements. He also need to do explosive type work out to develop his legs strength. My advise is to do it now (Start doing lateral movements and explosive training) because your height may turn out to be a disadvantages for you!

    This kid has been playing competitive football for just 3 years but has lots of potential. Once he grows into his body he will be an animal. Sky’s the limit for this kid.
