More than two weeks ago, Toleafoa Sean Auwae experienced a phenomenon that is rare for any high school football player: he received two college scholarship offers on the same day.
Since Arizona State and Louisville came calling on Mar. 22, Hawaii made an offer on Mar. 24.
From his Twitter page:

Blessed to receive an offer from University of Hawaii! Thankful for the opportunity from Coach Chow and the UH staff
Now it is Oregon State that has jumped into the ring and is the ninth FBS school to make an offer to the 6-foot-4, 300-pound junior from Kapolei.
Auwae announced the offer on his Twitter page this morning.
