Tagovailoa-Amosa, the No. 2-rated college prospect in the state, chose the Fighting Irish over several schools, including USC and Vanderbilt.

“It (Notre Dame) just felt good, it was right for me,” he said.

Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa from Saint Louis School, the No. 1 prospect, has already enrolled at Alabama and made a video speech to the gathering.

Punahou defensive lineman Miki Suguturaga signed with Utah, one of three local players to commit to the Utes, joining Kapaa offensive tackle Mo Unutoa and Kahuku defensive end Aliki Vimahi.

Kamehameha linebacker Andrew Aleki and Punahou linebacker Seyddrick Lakalaka both signed with San Diego State.

Saint Louis offensive lineman Michael Minihan signed with Georgia Tech and Kailua defensive end Christian Mejia signed with Washington State.
