Letuligasenoa has recently kept busy by visiting college campuses up and down the West Coast, so the timing makes sense. The 6-foot-2 and 295-pounder visited Oregon and Oregon State in March, Washington earlier this month and then UCLA and USC this past weekend. And being a prospect at De La Salle HS, he’s also very familiar with Cal, as Berkeley, Calif. is less than 30 miles away from Concord, Calif.
In addition to those six schools, Letuligasenoa also holds scholarship offers from traditional football powers such as Miami (Fla.), Nebraska and Notre Dame.
We asked Rivals.com’s Adam Gorney, Mike Singer and Chris Swanson to offer predictions on which school Letuligasenoa will commit to.
“Letuligasenoa has been highly complimentary of every visit he's been on so far so it's difficult to get a read on which schools really stand out the most. But he has loved the USC program for a very long time and seemed to really hit it off with the coaching staff during his visit. I wouldn't be shocked if he picked another Pac-12 school like UCLA, Washington or Cal but my guess would be that the Trojans win out.”
“I think this is a close battle between Oregon and USC, although several other schools are involved as well. I would not be surprised at all if he chooses the Ducks, but Letuligasenoa is fresh off a USC visit, I'll give the Trojans the edge. USC continues their run of snagging top rated defensive lineman with Letuligasenoa's commitment.
“Everything Letuligasenoa has told me about USC leads me to believe he really loves the program and that the Trojans will be his eventual choice. I feel confident in predicting USC for Sunday’s commitment.”
