Haniteli Lousi, a four-star guard recruit out of the College of San Mateo (Calif.), has a short time to play at Oregon because of the time he spent at junior college, so enrolling early will be a big help in his quest to earn a starting position. He checks in at an imposing 6’5, 295 pounds. Lousi chose Oregon over offers from Arizona State, Colorado and a handful of other west coast programs. He should provide immediate help along the offensive line. Lousi was rated as the No. 1 guard and the No. 20 junior college player nationally. Ducks fans are excited to add the big man to their up-tempo attack.
