| Summary:

We present a reconstruction in early data of the semileptonic decay $B^+ to
pi^0 ell^+ nu_ell$, and first results of a reconstruction of the decays
$B^+ to rho^0 ell^+ nu_ell$ and $B^0 to rho^- ell^+ nu_ell$ in a
sample corresponding to 62.8 fb$^{-1}$ of Belle II data using hadronic
$B$-tagging via the full-event-interpretation algorithm. We determine the total
branching fractions via fits to the distribution of the square of the missing
mass, and find $mathcal{B}(B^+ to pi^0 ell^+ nu_ell)$ = (8.29 $pm$
1.99(stat) $pm$ 0.46(syst)) $times 10^{-5}$. We obtain $95%$ CL upper limits
on the branching fractions with $mathcal{B}(B^0 to rho^- ell^+ nu_ell) <
3.37 times 10^{-4}$ and $mathcal{B}(B^+ to rho^0 ell^+ nu_ell) < 19.7
times 10^{-5}$. We also obtain an updated branching fraction for the $B^0 to
pi^- ell^+ nu_ell$ decay, $mathcal{B}(B^0 to pi^- ell^+ nu_ell)$ =
(1.47 $pm$ 0.29(stat) $pm$ 0.05(syst)) $times 10^{-4}$, based on the sum of
the partial branching fractions in three bins of the squared momentum transfer
to the leptonic system.
