USC interim head coach Ed Orgeron picks up his fifth verbal commitment since taking over the Trojan program. 2014 Corona (Calif.) Centennial offensive guard Viane Talamaivao has flipped from Alabama to USC.

Ed Orgeron's reign as interim head coach couldn't be going any better.

Fresh off a 20-17 upset over No. 5 Stanford on Saturday, Orgeron received a verbal commitment from 2014 Corona (Calif.) Centennial offensive guard Viane Talamaivao, Centennial coach Matt Logan confirmed to FOX Sports SCPlaybook on Monday evening.

Talamaivao, along with several high school teammates and other top recruits, was at the Coliseum on Saturday night to see the capacity crowd and Orgeron's re-energized Trojans take down the Cardinal.

He has been committed to Nick Saban and Alabama since May 30. He took an official visit to Tuscaloosa to see the Crimson Tide beat LSU on Nov. 9.

Talamaivao's father confirmed earlier on Monday to Scout that Viane will be taking an official to USC on Jan. 18 with an elite group of Polynesian players, including Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco offensive lineman Damien Mama, Long Beach (Calif.) Poly defensive back Juju Smith, and high school teammate and USC commit Austin Maloata.

Talamaivao is the fifth player to commit to USC since Orgeron took over.
