4-star Bishop Gorman offensive lineman commits to Big Ten school

Four-star Bishop Gorman offensive lineman Alai Kalaniuvalu announced his college commitment to Oregon on Wednesday on his social media accounts.

Kalaniuvalu, the fourth-ranked class of 2025 recruit in Nevada by 247Sports, chose Oregon over other notable Division I schools such as Utah, Southern California, Nebraska and Michigan.

Kalaniuvalu, listed at 6 feet, 4 inches, 305 pounds, is part of a trio of four-star Gorman offensive linemen who are among the state’s top 2025 recruits. All three have made their college decisions this summer.

SJ Alofaituli, the state’s second-ranked recruit, committed to Miami on July 5, and third-ranked recruit Douglas Utu committed to Tennessee in June.

Gorman wide receiver Derek Meadows, a five-star recruit and the state’s top-rated prospect, will announce his college commitment Saturday. Notre Dame, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana State and Michigan are in Meadows’ final five.
