USC defensive tackle commitment Dillon Faamatau from Norwalk, Calif., Cerritos College will make an official visit to Louisville this week.

The University of Louisville will host a big junior college visitor on Friday for an official visit.

Norwalk, Calif., Cerritos College defensive tackle Dillon Faamatau, a former Arizona State signee and current USC commitment, will be on campus this weekend checking out the Cardinals.

"I am looking forward to it," Faamatau said. "Coach (Chris) Klenakis checks in on me every day and said he's fired up to try and get me on campus. He just keeps telling me how excited he is to get me on campus.

"He kept telling me how fired up he was and I said I had a free weekend after my Oklahoma visit. I'm excited to see it."

The 6-foot-4, 305-pound committed to USC in late April and said Oklahoma was his first visit and the Cardinals will be his second. He's expecting to take a few more visits before the end of his season.

"In high school, I only took two visits," he said. "My offers were not as big as they are now. I have Pac-12 and ACC offers now. It's been a lot of fun for me (the second time around)."

Faamatau signed with Arizona State in 2015 after a stelalr career at Norwalk High School where he was a two-time 1st Team All-CIF and First Team All-Suburban League selection. After redshirting, Faamatau transferred to Cerritos College last year where he played and finished with 32 tackles and one sack in 10 games. 

He mentioned Utah and Colorado as other schools in the mix. Prior to signing with Arizona State, Faamatau was committed to Washington State and had more than a dozen offers.

As far as Louisville, Faamatau said his relationship with Klenakis is "really good" and he noted defensive coordinator Peter Sirmon came to "give me the eye test" recently at his junior college.

"They're excited about me and I like that," he said. "Just how fired up they are to have me on campus has me excited."
