One of the final big announcements to take place on National Signing Day was from a top-ranked athlete from Long Beach, CA, Juju Smith. During his announcement at Long Beach Polytechnic High School, the four-star recruit had hats for Notre Dame, Oregon, UCLA and USC in front of him, but there could only be one team to land the No. 24 player on the ESPN 300.
When it was officially time for Smith to announce where he will be playing ball, he reached down and let the nation know that he will be a member of the University of Southern California Trojans.
It was the latest big get for the Trojans.
“The new coaching staff is great. USC has been my dream school since day one. My family is big USC fans and I just love them to death. Fight on,” Smith said as he made his announcement.
Smith closed off his announcement with a classic, “Fight on, dude.”
