Damien Mama Cancels Visit To UCLA, Includes USC In His Final Three


According to Greg Biggins, four-star offensive guard Damien Mama (Bellflower, Calif./St. John Bosco) has cancelled his previously scheduled visit to UCLA this weekend.

Minutes after Biggins’ update, Mama sent out a tweet to announce his top three.

Mama officially visited the USC campus over the Jan. 24 weekend, but had some Trojan fans worried as he then made an unofficial visit to UCLA early in the week.

He is part of the “Uce Crew”, which is a group of Polynesian athletes who have their sights set on taking college football by storm.

With some recent losses in the recruiting cycle, getting Mama in the fold is imperative for Steve Sarkisian.

The 6-5 lineman has had a strong interest in becoming a Trojan, which may in part be to the Trojans currently having fellow Uce Crew members, Toa Lobendahn (La Habra, Calif./La Habra) already enrolled and Viane Talamaivao (Corona, Calif./Centennial) set to join him come Feb. 5.

After receiving disappointing news with respect to Michiah Quick (Fresno, Calif./Central East), being named by Mama as a finalist is key with signing day only one week away.

Mama will announce his college decision on National Signing Day.

    Lock him up. It’s done.

      You’re always confident, Chuckie.

        He cancelled visits to both UCLA and BYU, and hasn’t been to Alabama since Viane de-committed. It’s done. It’s in the bag. It’s over. Mama is a Trojan. Lock it up. Take it to the bank.

      Certainly looks that way at the moment.

    Forgot that Bama was in the mix here. UCLA always felt like SC’s biggest threat, so I have to agree with Chuck on this.

      They were big time on the Uce Crew, dude.
