Five-Star Checkup: Class of 2020

Now a month into the college football season, Rivals national recruiting director Adam Gorney takes a look back at the 2020 five-stars who are still in college football to see how they’re performing so far. This is a weeklong series looking at all the five-stars still in college football.

In the spring before his senior season, Uiagalelei – then the No. 1 player in the 2020 class – committed to Clemson over Oregon.

After an uneven three years with the Tigers, which actually ended on a high note as Uialgalelei threw for 2,521 yards with 22 touchdowns and seven picks in 2022, the five-star quarterback transferred to Oregon State as it became clear Cade Klubnik was taking over at Clemson.

So far this season, Uiagalelei is completing just under 58 percent of his passes for 828 yards with seven TDs and three INTs.
