Sooners Bolster Defensive Line With Hawaii Transfer

Oklahoma’s defensive line got a little deeper and a whole lot stronger on Thursday when Hawaii transfer Jonah La’ulu announced that he was taking the Norman exit out of the transfer portal. A three-year starter on the defensive line, who is also athletic enough to have played tight end for the Rainbow Warriors, La’ulu will have two years of eligibility remaining.

In the last two seasons La’ulu has recorded 47 tackles and 5.5 sacks at Hawaii. The 6-6/280 Las Vegas prospect was a member of Hawaii’s 2018 recruiting class and leaves after having stared for three consecutive seasons. He was highly recruited by Miami (Fl.), among several other schools, while in the transfer portal but the Sooners ultimately won out. He becomes the fourth player OU has picked up from the transfer portal, joining quarterback Dillon Gabriel, offensive lineman McKade Mettauer, and tight end Daniel Parker.
