2016 USC Football Recruiting: USC Misses on Both De La Salle Recruits

Boss Tagaloa and Devin Asiasi spurn USC and head to UCLA and Michigan, respectively

Around lunch time on National Signing Day 2016 both De La Salle USC targets decided their college fate. Devin Asiasi chose to be apart of the Michigan Wolverines and Boss Tagaloa chose to stay home, but go to UCLA. Asiasi seemed the most likely of the two to commit to USC, but USC missed on both of these two.

Both Tagaloa and Asiasi were four-star recruits, Tagaloa is a defensive tackle and Asiasi is a tight end. In the final 247sports rankings, Tagaloa was the 13th best defensive tackle and Asiasi was the 3rd best tight end. These two recruits would have been a great get for this 2016 class, but sadly E.J. Price took the second to last scholarship and USC would only have room for one of them.

In the 2016 class, USC has only one defensive tackle, three-star Joshua Fatu, and only one tight end, four-star Cary Angeline. There are currently no more tight ends or defensive tackles on the board for USC, because most analysts believe the last scholarship is going to go to five-star Jack Jones.

The USC class seems to be all wrapped up and it is a great class, but certainly could have been better. Stay tuned to Conquest Chronicles for more recruiting coverage and an assessment of the incoming class.
