Southern California football recruiting: Trojans land 5-star OT Chuma Edoga

The Southern Cal Trojans landed a big fish on Monday when 5-star offensive tackle Chuma Edoga gave his pledge to the Trojans.

“I committed to USC,” Edoga told Kipp Adams of 24/7 Sports. “My visit pretty much was the deciding factor that solidified my decision to go to USC. The engineering department had everything I needed to succeed academically, then I got to the football side and saw all the things the football coaches and players did. That showed me I could succeed there athletically too.”

The 6’4, 276-pounder, who named the Tennessee Volunteers his leader earlier in the process, attends McEachern High School and is from Power Springs, Georgia, but doesn’t think the distance will bother him.

“I feel like I made a really good choice in picking USC, so I think I will be able to handle it,” Edoga said. I am really excited to finally get my recruitment over with. I am setting myself up for life with his decision.”

Edoga is ranked as the fourth-best offensive tackle prospect in the country, the fourth-best overall prospect in the state of Georgia and the 27th best overall prospect in the class of 2015, according to 24/7 Sports’ composite rankings.

Edoga chose the Trojans over an impressive list of offers, including the Alabama Crimson Tide, Auburn Tigers, Clemson Tigers and hometown Georgia Bulldogs.
