The wait for Betiku’s announcement went perhaps longer than expected on Christmas, as the Serra defender tweeted out his intentions to be a Trojan just after 5:00 p.m.

But for a team without a defensive coordinator, defensive line coach or even a known defensive plan, getting California’s top defensive player was well worth the wait.

Betiku is the second member of USC’s 2016 class to have formerly been committed to UCLA, joining wide receiver Michael Pittman.
