Four-star safety Isaiah Pola-Mao announced Saturday afternoon that he was planning to cut down his list of schools to three:
With Pola-Mao on an official visit to USC at the time of the tweet, it stood to reason that the Trojans had either done enough to assure a spot ot the trip was going poor and the Phoenix (Ariz.) Mountain Pointe star had already determined that he was getting rid of the Trojans from consideration.
Apparently, things have been going well this weekend for Pola-Mao and his family:
The 6-foot-4, 190-pound hitter is the top-ranked safety in the state of Arizona and No. 3 in the West at his position. After giving thanks to those around him and those that helped him get to the position he is in, Pola-Mao listed USC, Washington and Arizona State with no specific order, according to his tweet.
The short trek to Los Angeles was Pola-Mao's final official visit, leaving him two weeks to determine which school he will choose to attend before National Signing Day on February 1.
It was believed that Pola-Mao was leaning towards the local Sun Devils, but that may be in question after a strong official with his family this weekend. Both he and his parents seemed to have a great time this weekend:
USC currently has three defensive backs committed, including safeties Bubba Bolden from Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman and Powder Springs (Ga.) McEachern's C.J. Miller. Four-star Tampa (Fla.) Plant athlete Juwan Burgess could also play safety at the next level. Bolden is the only defensive back commit that is ranked higher than Pola-Mao, who is the No. 126 overall recruit in the Scout 300.
Whichever school picks up the commitment of Pola-Mao could also have the inside track for a 2019 four-star defensive tackle. Isaiah's younger brother, Matthew Pola-Mao, is already 6-foot-2 and 290 pounds, drawing plenty of attention on his own.
Here's some early season highlights from Isaiah Pola'Mao's senior year at Mountain Pointe HS:
