Kahuku defensive end Aliki Vimahi picked up his 12th Division I scholarship offer from a school he has been waiting for.
Vimahi, who is 6-foot-4 and 250 pounds, called it his “DREAM SCHOOL” in all caps this morning when he tweeted that he has been offered by USC.

The Trojans are the sixth Pac-12 school to offer Vimahi, joining UCLA, Washington State, Colorado, Utah and Oregon State.
USC signed two players from Hawaii last year in RB Vavae Malepeai (Mililani) and LB Jordan Iosefa (Saint Louis). Iosefa has played in all seven games as a true freshman and made seven tackles for the Trojans, who have won three in a row to get to 4-3 overall and 3-2 in Pac-12 play.
Malepeai has missed time batting a shoulder injury.
Vimahi, who also holds offers from BYU, Georgia Tech, Hawaii, UNLV, San Diego State and Virginia, has helped Kahuku shut out six opponents this season. The Red Raiders have given up only one touchdown in their last 30 quarters against Hawaii opponents.
No. 1 Kahuku (9-1) plays No. 4 Farrington (8-2) for the OIA D-I championship on Friday night at Aloha Stadium.
