With the 2018 season ending and early signing day coming up, This is around the time we start to hear about recruits taking official visits and making their commitments. USC has been quiet on the recruiting front through the season, but recently made some key in home visits last week. Sunday night they landed the commitment of a local three start offensive lineman for the 2019 class.
Wow! Super excited to announce that I've been offered and will accept the offer from USC. I want to COMMIT to continuing my academic and athletic goals with the Trojans! Thank you Coach Helton! ✌ #fighton pic.twitter.com/H8njtE3Tcj— Tilini Suli Livai (@TiliniSuli) December 3, 2018
Narbonne High School offensive guard Tilini Livai announced his commitment to the Trojans on his twitter. He received an offer from head coach Clay Helton during his visit to USC, but didn’t take long to commit to them. Livai had offers from Hawaii, Iowa State, and New Mexico.
At 6’3, 300 lb, Livai is ranked 106th at the offensive guard position. He is also ranked 232 in the state of California and ranked 1,984 nationally according to the 24/7 Sports Composite.
Livai is the second offensive lineman in the USC 2019 recruiting class. Four star offensive lineman Jason Rodriguez committed to the Trojans back in mid April. Some believe that Livai is an under the radar prospect. With the Trojans losing Chris Brown and Jordan Austin to graduation, Livai adds some much needed depth to the offensive guard position.
Once again things have been pretty quiet on the recruiting front for USC, however expect things to pick up with official visits and early signing day coming up next week. Recently the USC coaching staff took in home visits to some of their top targets last week.
