Southern Cal appears to be making the rounds in Hawaii this week.

A day after offering a scholarship to Kahuku DL Aliki Vimahi, USC extended an offer to Kapolei DL Myron Tagovailoa-Amosa on Wednesday morning.

Hurricanes coach Darren Hernandez confirmed the news via text.


It’s the 11th scholarship offer for Tagovailoa-Amosa, who is 6-foot-4 and 260 pounds. He also holds offers from Air Force, Army, Georgia Tech, Hawaii, Navy, UNLV, Oregon State, Utah State, Vanderbilt and Virginia.


In 10 games this season, Tagovailoa-Amosa has 12 sacks, 16 tackles for loss and eight pass breakups at the line of scrimmage.


No. 5 Kapolei plays No. 6 Waianae at approximately 7:30 p.m. at Mililani on Saturday in the OIA D-I third-place game.

    Go to Vanderbilt or Virginia. A degree from those schools last a lifetime and often opens doors.

    Vandy and UVA are fine academic institutions, but so is USC. I would argue that if you plan to live in Hawaii or the west coast, USC’s alumni network is much better than the aforementioned ones.
