John ‘Juju’ Smith Reportedly Torn Between Two Schools

UPDATE: Juju Smith was reportedly set to commit to Oregon.

UPDATE: Juju Smith committed to USC, giving Steve Sarkisian and the Trojans a sweep of Adoree’ Jackson, Damien Mama and Smith. 

* * * *

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.

Mama was the first of the group to commit to the Trojans, and Jackson followed suit roughly three hours later.

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.

    For Gary below, no one is stating that South Bend is a wonderland. Lord knows, when a kid selects ND over USC (happens almost once a year), I am always astonished…but, let’s not get too haughty about USC,,
    USC campus is in lockdown mode; it is accused of not identifying crimes, but rather choosing to mislabel in a guided effort to show lower crime rates. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/08/12/usc-sexual-assault_n_3741267.html. Recommendation to students, as long as your on campus, with the close to 300 police folks, and do not date venture outside the walls, you are good.

    Yes, players are transported to the stadium under armed guard.
    But hey. on the non smog days, it is pretty nice.
    Then again, as we have learned, USC football players, despite coming from economically challenged families do end up with SUV’s and beach houses.
