The USC Trojans have been on a roll in the recruiting world and added to their stacked list of commits with four-star Maninoa Tufono.

The inside linebacker from Honolulu, Hawaii released his commitment video on Twitter, where Texas, LSU, Washington, and UCLA were all possible endings.

The 6 foot 3, 225 pound Polynesian Bowl commit is the No. 3 ranked player for his position and the No. 6 ranked player in the state of Hawaii per 247Sports.

An ESPN 300 player, he runs a 4.50 second 20-yard shuttle, records a 30.3 inch vertical jump.

Tufono will join a decorated roster of inside linebackers in 2019 with John Houston Jr., Jordan Iosefa, Levi Jones, and fellow commit Stanley Taufoou.

Tufono is the third commitment in four days for Clay Helton and the Trojans after adding St. John Bosco four-star tight end Jude Wolfe and Saguaro kicker Parker Lewis.

After what some considered a slow start to the 2019 recruiting class, USC has continued to add star studded ammo as of late with four-stars Chris Steele and Ethan Rae announcing their pledge to the Trojans in July.

Currently USC holds the No. 24 rated recruiting class for 2019 and will only continue to rise through the ranks as the weeks go on.
