Oregon’s late recruiting season surge under new head coach Willie Taggart has definitely been felt in the islands.
The Ducks made a late push to sway Saint Louis linebacker Isaac Slade-Matautia to commit to Oregon after he was considered to be leaning to Nebraska.
Now Oregon has apparently set its sights on Kapaa offensive lineman Morris Unutoa in the final days leading to National Letter of Intent Signing Day on Wednesday.
Unutoa picked up his 12th Division I offer from the Ducks a few days ago. He is currently on his final recruiting trip to Utah with Kahuku’s Aliki Vimahi and Punahou’s Miki Suguturaga, who are also both uncommitted.
Unutoa, who is 6-foot-5 and 280 pounds, is expecting to make his commitment Wednesday on Kauai. His offer sheet includes BYU, Central Florida, Colorado, Hawaii, UNLV, Oregon, Oregon State, San Jose State, Utah, Vanderbilt, Virginia and Washington State.
