Juju Smith had the final announcement time among his, Adoree’ Jackson’s and Damien Mama’s ESPNU commitment schedule. By committing to USC, Smith was the final piece in the Trojans’ 2014 class.
With Smith’s commitment, Steve Sarkisian finalized the class in impressive fashion with the trio of Jackson, Mama and Smith.
According to Scott Schrader of 247 Sports, Smith was ready to commit to Oregon.
The Oregonian’s Andrew Greif:
Juju Smith has chosen USC over Oregon, others. Right after the announcement the ESPNU broadcast in UO's football complex lobby goes mute.
