Reno Huskies football star Brandon "Ale" Kaho will not be suiting up for a pair of national showcase bowls this week. News 4 has learned that Kaho underwent shoulder surgery, and will miss both the Under Armour Bowl as well as the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.

The four-star recruit had offers from dozens of Power 5 programs including the likes of Alabama, but ultimately signed with the University of Washington during the early signing period a few weeks ago.

He is also invited to play in the Polynesian Bowl on January 20th in Honolulu. His status for that game is uncertain.
