The top high school football recruit from Utah in the class of 2021 has reportedly entered the transfer portal after a half season with the Oregon Ducks.

Multiple outlets reported Tuesday evening that former Orem High offensive tackle Kingsley Suamataia has entered the portal after signing with the Ducks last December.

Listed by Oregon at 6-foot-6 and 317 pounds, Suamataia was rated a five-star recruit by both 247 Sports and Rivals, and he was a consensus top-40 prospect nationally with scholarship offers from schools around the country.

Suamataia has appeared in just one game for No. 7 Oregon this season, against Stony Brook of the FCS on Sept. 18.

Suamataia spent his younger years in Hawaii before prepping at Orem.
