USC football has received the signed letter of intent from four-star hybrid defensive end/linebacker Olajuwon Tucker (Gardena, Calif./Junipero Serra) joining his fellow teammate Jalen Greene in the Trojans' 2014 recruiting class.

In his breakout senior season with the Serra Cavaliers, Tucker recorded 117 tackles, including 25 for loss. He also added seven interceptions and four fumble recoveries on a squad that reached the CIF Championship Game.

Just in recent history, Tucker joins Marqise Lee, George Farmer and Robert Woods along the Gardena Serra pipeline to USC fooball, that could also feature another five-star recruit in Adoree' Jackson later this morning.

Tucker is ranked the No. 12 inside linebacker in the nation, and stands as the 37th-ranked player from California, according to 247sports' composite rankings. Check out some of the powerful highlights from Olajuwon Tucker's senior season.
