USC received their third commitment in three days Monday evening as Lakewood (Calif.) offensive tackle Toa Lobendahn gave the Trojans his verbal commitment.
"I just feel like there's not really another school that competes like USC does and that's probably one of the better places for me to go for my career," explained Lobendahn of his decision to commit early, "(I like) the overall history of the school and just the way they always play."
He is the second to commit to the Trojans' 2014 recruiting class, after Jordan Poland accepted USC's offer on Saturday.
"I was surprised because they only have 15 scholarships to offer due to what had happened," Lobendahn said of the Monday offer. "I was just amazed and excited."
The offer comes on the heels of what Lobendahn described as a "great" showing at USC's linemen camp on Saturday.
The Trojans were Lobendahn's second offer, he received an offer from UCLA on Sunday morning.
