Oahu is known as Hawaii's "Gathering place."
Fittingly, it is where some of the biggest names in county community college football will be gathering next fall to play for the University of Hawaii.
Ventura College star linebacker Brenden Daley committed to the Warriors Sunday while on an official visit to the Honolulu school.
"I get out here in May," said Daley. "I'm going to be representing for the Mainlanders... Oh man, I'm excited to win over this crowd."
The 6-foot-4, 255-pound Moorpark High product, who had 100 tackles, 15.5 tackles for a loss and seven sacks for the Pirates as a sophomore, joins Moorpark College's record-breaking receiver Chris Gant, who committed to Hawaii earlier this month.
Daley's VC teammate, defensive end Jon Lattimore, who had 15.5 tackles for a loss and nine sacks as a sophomore, is also considering Hawaii.
"Hopefully, Latt will come here, too," said Daley.
Daley said he is poised to fill a void at middle linebacker for the Warriors.
"I'm coming into a perfect situation," said Daley.
The hyper-kinetic linebacker thereby declared his recruiting closed. He was being pursued by a list of schools that included Washington and Cincinnati.
"This is it," said Daley. "I'm happy here. I gave them my word and I'm going to stand by it. I'm ready to rock."
