According to Scout.com’s Greg Biggins, Long Beach Poly (Calif.) five-star athlete Juju Smith was struggling to decide between committing to Oregon or USC as recent as Tuesday night.
Along with Adoree’ Jackson and Damien Mama, Smith is the last of the three high-profile local targets Steve Sarkisian began National Signing Day in hot pursuit of.
Damien Mama and Viane Talamaivao say they both will try to make it down to Juju Smith’s press conference today at 1pm. #UceCrew

USCFootball.com’s Gerard Martinez reports Mama and fellow Trojan commit Viane Talamaivao hope to be present for Smith’s announcement at Long Beach Poly.
If Sarkisian is able to sign Smith, it will tie the bow on an impressive class entering his first season as Trojan head coach.
With Jackson and Mama part of the class, it may help in persuading Smith to commit to the lone local school in his final top three.
