Top tackle is a Trojan

USC commit Chuma Edoga

Chuma Edoga has committed to USC. The four-star offensive tackle out of Georgia said he will play his college ball in California...

USC it is for Chuma Edoga.

There was chatter about his commitment the weekend he visited L.A. early in April, but it officially happened Monday when the 6-foot-4, 277 pound junior made the call.

"When I took my visit, I knew that is where I wanted to go," said Edoga. "I loved the feeling I had there during my visit and it felt right on campus and around the coaches."

At first, Edoga announced that he would commit on his birthday, May 25. Then he decided to cancel those plans and maybe extend his recruitment a little longer. Those plans changed as well.

"I've known for a while where I wanted to go, so I did not think there was any reason for me to wait," said Edoga. "It was a tough decision because I had so many great schools to choose from, but I feel I made a good decision."

The Scout 100 offensive tackle feels good about his commitment to the Trojans, but not good enough to completely end the recruiting process.

He chose USC over Georgia, Stanford, and Tennessee among others. Do not expect those schools to give up on the No. 3 tackle in the country.

The Powder Springs (Ga.) McEachern will still listen to what other schools have to say.

"I am still going to visit [other] schools, but it is going to take a lot to sway me," said Edoga.

Edoga is the No. 41 overall prospect in the country on Scout.
