California OL gets Miami offer

Miami has what many call the nation's top offensive line class right now. They're still seeking a fifth player there, and offered an elite prospect from California today. Read on to learn about him as a prospect.

Viane Talamaivao says he was offered by the Hurricanes today.

He started at guard as a sophomore before playing tackle as a junior in 2012. He was a Nike Camp OL MVP before his junior season.

He grew up a big USC fan.

"I've been a huge USC fan, ever since I was a little kid. I really like all the in-state schools, like UCLA, California, and Stanford, and I'd love to stay near home if I could," he told Scout.

UCLA was his first in-state offer. Ole Miss was his first Southeast offer. In December, he named those two along with Washington as his top choices. He's already made several visits to UCLA, and took in USC's Junior Day as well.

Alabama offered him in February, and that's really when he started becoming a national recruit. Earlier this month he named Alabama and Ole Miss his top two choices, and said Florida State, Washington, and Wisconsin rounded out his top five.

His dream school, USC, still hasn't offered and that's likely why he's showing so much interest in schools in the South. A Trojan offer would likely change his thinking.

Like nearly every kid out West, his interest level in Miami won't really be determined until he's able to take a visit here at some point. He plans on seeing some schools in the South this summer, so Miami will hope to be one of them.
