Kapolei senior offensive lineman Toleafoa Sean Auwae opened up his recruiting on Monday announcing on Twitter he is no longer committed to UCLA.

The 6-foot-5, 300-pounder was named to the All-OIA Blue first team last week after helping the Hurricanes advance to the OIA quarterfinals before losing to eventual state champion Kahuku to end the season.

Auwae committed to UCLA in mid-August but took a trip to Vanderbilt during the weekend of the state football semifinals. Vanderbilt was one of the schools in Auwae’s top six before he committed to UCLA. The other schools were Texas Tech, Louisville, Utah and Oregon State.


Auwae wrote on Twitter, “After thinking it over and praying hard I’ve decided to decommit from UCLA and open up my recruitment again so I know I am making the right choice for my future. I am extremely grateful for the time and consideration the staff of UCLA has put into me. And most importantly the love from the fans and everyone who has continued to support me. Thank you.”


Auwae had been one of seven Hawaii high schools seniors to commit to Pac-12 schools.

He will play in the Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl in January.
