USC Recruiting: Damien Mama Cancels UCLA Visit; Trims List

Ethan Miller

St. John Bosco (Bellflower, Calif.) offensive lineman Damien Mama looks closer and closer to being a Trojan.

Damien Mama, one of USC's big three final targets heading toward National Signing Day next week, cancelled a visit to UCLA he had planned to make this weekend.

Scout's Greg Biggins reported the St. John Bosco lineman's decision on Twitter:

Shortly after, Mama tweeted out his final three school choices:

Considered a USC lean by most, Mama is a crucial prospect for the Trojans, who are trying to restore the offensive line depth. The Trojans lost four players that had started in center Marcus Martin, reserve center Abe Markowitz, part-time starter John Martinez and right tackle Kevin Graf. Starting right guard Aundrey Walker is also coming off a broken leg injury sustained against the Bruins.

The 6'4", 370-pound Mama is rated as a the No. 1 offensive guard prospect in the country by Rivals and the second-best guard, according to Scout and 247sports.

Originally, Damien Mama intended to take an official visit to BYU, but had cancelled that trip in favor of an unofficial visit to local UCLA. He apparently changed his mind today...or could he have been told not to come?
