The 6-foot-4, 263 pound offensive lineman is rated as the No. 2 overall player in the state of Hawaii, No. 7 offensive guard in the class of 2019, and No. 124 overall per 247Sports Composite. Most projections had Vimahi going to Ohio State with the Trojans as a distant second. Vimahi also had an impressive showing during the Polynesian Bowl week.
Vimahi took a visit to USC back in December, however Ohio State jumped in the drivers seat following his visit to Columbus in January. Picking up Vimahi would’ve been beneficial to the Trojans following a rough 2018 for the offensive line. USC currently has two offensive linemen in the 2019 class. Four-star Jason Rodriguez and three-star Tilini Livai, both whom signed during the early signing period back in December.
