Tupou is a Trojan

Christian Tupou

Christian Tupou, a defensive tackle from Grant High in Sacramento, has verbally committed to USC according his coach, Mike Alberghini.

"He's going to USC," Alberghini said. "We've talked it over and it's a done deal. He will sign a letter-of-intent for USC on Wedensday."

We had been hearing Tupou had committed, but we hadn't had confirmation until tonight.

WeAreSC.com will contact Tupou and hopefully have more later.
