Hawaii Prep senior offensive tackle Max Unger orally committed to play football at Oregon, his father Keith Unger said last night.
The 6-foot-5, 285-pound Unger helped Ka Makani to a state tournament appearance a year ago when he was a Star-Bulletin all-state second-team selection.
This summer, Unger visited several East Coast schools, Oregon and Oregon State, and he liked everything about the Eugene campus, according to Keith Unger.
Oregon and Oregon State both made offers to Max Unger last spring, his dad said.
"Max Unger is probably the best player on the team," Hawaii Prep coach Tom Goodspeed said last night. "It's what he can do with his feet for his size that is the most impressive. He's a good pass blocker who pulls on counters and turns up into the hole; that's what Oregon likes about him. He's a good kid, smart and he works hard."
Unger joins Jordon Dizon of Waimea as Hawaii players who have committed early. Dizon, a linebacker and running back, is headed to Colorado.
