Oregon earns big-time commitment from blue-chip offensive lineman
Oregon scored a double-dip on Monday. The 2024 class added a blue-chip tight end from just a few miles away in Medford. Then the 2023 class landed a major commitment from the top-ranked Hawaiian recruit.
Honolulu (Hawaii) Farrington offensive lineman Iapani Laloulu announced his commitment to the Ducks on Twitter with a simple statement: “Home.”

Laloulu chose the Ducks from a slew of suitors that included Arizona, Cal, Florida, and Tennessee, among others. The 6-foot-2, 355-pound guard is a 4-star prospect in the industry-generated 247 Composite. He’s also been selected to participate in the Polynesian Bowl.
He’s the top-ranked recruit in the state of Hawaii and the 14th-ranked prospect at his position. In the Composite, he’s the 309th-ranked overall recruit.
With the Ducks’ class now holding 21 known verbal commitments, the group ranks 10th nationally. It’s the top class in the Pac-12, one that features a 5-star quarterback and a 5-star wideout, but also some serious talent along the line of scrimmage.
Laloulu joins Lipe Moala and Bryce Boulton as offensive linemen in the class. All three have joined the fold since the start of October.
