Don Lugo High School all-everything defensive tackle George Uko verbally committed to USC on Dec. 25, according to rivals.com and scout.com. I’ve got a meeting set up with Uko on Wednesday to confirm his committment.
The 6-foot-4, 295-pound senior chose the Trojans from a top five of USC, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Miami and LSU. The five-star defensive tackle, according to scout.com, had copious other offers from schools around the country, including Cal and Oregon.
Uko, who played in the Under Armor All-America game on Saturday, had 88 tackles and 15 sacks this season.
