We knew it was a long shot that Mama would commit to BYU, but now it is official. Damien Mama announced he will be playing for Steve Sarkisian and USC in his college career.
Mama joins a long list of recruits over the years who considered BYU, but opted to sign with USC instead. Stanley Havili, Christian Tupou, Deuce Lutui, Uona Kaveinga (later transferred to BYU), and so on.
Mama was a four-star recruit and in the top 40 by many recruiting services across the country.
All of the predictions that were posted earlier this morning have been spot on thus far.
Here’s a picture from Mama’s announcement at his high school.
