USC suffered a flip Monday evening with JUCO DT Dillon Faamatau's commitment to Oklahoma Monday night.
Faamatau, a former standout at Norwalk, committed to USC out of Cerritos College back in April. The one time Arizona State Sun Devil was planning on enrolling this summer but only if he could make the required credits for the transfer.
It appears that wasn't going to happen meaning the 6-foot-4, 290-pound DT would have needed to wait until 2018 if he wanted to be a Trojan. The Sooners however could take him now.
He took an official visit to Oklahoma this weekend. Faamatau said USC was his dream school growing up but also said he would continue to hear out other programs.
In the end it's not a huge blow for USC, which has plenty of young talent on the defensive line. But adding a veteran player like Faamatau would have been a nice little boost.
I believe Faamatu had only one condition when it came to playing at SC and that was that he could play right away. Once he was told he would not qualify he moved on to no ones surprise within the organization.
The only negative is that Faamatu would have helped the class depth chart from what I understand due to his grade classification.
