Kamehameha senior Jonah Welch [Straight From The Bush alert - is the son of David Welch a 1987 grad], a 6-foot-2, 230-pound defensive end, has given an oral commitment to play football at the U.S. Naval Academy.

He announced the decision on Twitter with a video.

Welch had seven scholarship offers and chose Navy over Air Force, Army, Hawaii, Nevada, Syracuse and Vanderbilt.

Navy currently lists three players from Hawaii on its roster, WR/RB Keoni-Kordell Makekau(‘Iolani), OL Adam Amosa-Tagovailoa (Campbell) and defensive lineman Alema Kapoi(Kamehameha).

Also today, Kahuku offensive lineman Micah Mariteragi, who is 6-foot-4 and 265 pounds, announced his commitment to Virginia on Twitter. The Cavaliers were the first school to offer Mariteragi last week.
