JuJu Smith is onw of USC's most sought-after targets.
Earlier this week, 5-star ATH John "JuJu" Smith named his top four colleges, and he named the Trojans to that list.
Smith was originally scheduled to visit USC last week, but due to the AIGA Polynesian All-American Bowl, he and fellow target Damien Mama elected to push their visit back to this weekend.
The 6'1", 200-pound athlete is one of USC's most coveted recruits and since he has reportedly been a USC lean throughout the recruitment process, this could be the weekend that the Trojans really seal the deal. The fact that his friend Viane Talamaivao is a USC commit and other friend Mama is a top target works in in the Trojans' favor, and could play into Smith's final decision.
If Smith does sign with USC, the No. 3 ATH brings a versatile skill set to the Trojans' thin ranks. He's a top-rated safety in California, and while he would be the most beneficial to USC on that side of the ball, he can also line up at wide receiver. He is a playmaker on either side, with great instincts and explosiveness. His commitment would be a huge get for Sarkisian, as he goes about establishing himself as a dominant force in the Southern California landscape.
Expect Sarkisian to really sell Smith on the coaching staff he would learn under, as well as the possibility for early success, given the depth issues in the secondary.
