Five-star linebacker prospect Noah Sewell committed to Oregon on Friday night, minutes after he helped lead Orem High School to a second straight Utah state championship.

Sewell is ranked as the No. 2 inside linebacker and the No. 20 overall prospect in the nation on the 247Sports composite.

His brother, Penei, is the starting left tackle for Oregon. Two other brothers, Gabriel (Nevada) and Nephi (Utah), play college football.

The younger Sewell made an official visit to Eugene last month and chose the Ducks over more than 30 other schools.

“I love the defensive scheme that [defensive coordinator] Andy Avalos is coaching,” Sewell told 247Sports after that official visit. “Some of the players tell me that he is the best defensive coordinator they have ever worked with and he knows what he’s doing. Man, just watching them prepare for games is unbelievable.

“The coaching staff will literally do everything in their power to help you succeed in the game. They specifically love how I am very physical and love the way I communicate with my teammates. They told me they’ll use many different ways – one-on-one coverages, blitzes and more.”
