Pearl City junior Zion Tupuola-Fetui, a 6-foot-4, 250-pound defensive end/outside linebacker, picked up his seventh Division I football scholarship offer on Monday and fourth from the Pac-12.

Tupuola-Fetui announced on Twitter that California is the latest school to offer Tupuola-Fetui, joining Oregon, Oregon State and Washington out of the Pac-12, as well as Nevada, Hawaii and Vanderbilt.

Tupuola-Fetui is an interesting prospect who received an offer from defending Pac-12 champion Washington in February seemingly out of the blue that began this run of offers that now includes the Golden Bears.

He recently visited both Oregon and Oregon State.

Pearl City went 5-4 overall last year and 5-2 in OIA Division II, losing to Waipahu in the semifinals 13-7.
