Pagano makes surprise move to ACC

After months of soul searching, knowing he was going to leave Hawaii, Scott Pagano made his decision known Tuesday on Facebook, and it was a bit of a shocker. The 6-foot-4, 275-pound defensive tackle from Moanalua High School on the island of Oahu had been looking at SEC schools for a long time, but Tuesday he made it known that his heart is set on ACC country.

"After talking it over with my family!!! I will be playing be football for the next years at............... Clemson!!! #GO TIGERS! # BLESSED #THANK YOU FAMILY,COACHES,TEAMMATES!!." said Pagano on his personal Facebook page Tuesday afternoon. The timing of the announcement was also interesting in that he had planned to make his choice public on August 10th, but moved it up to today.

Below are two highlight reels of Pagano in action his junior season at Moanalua.
