  • Official visit update: Viane Talamaivao

    Out of the three verbal commits to officially visit USC this weekend, Corona (Calif.) Centennial offensive lineman Viane Talamaivao was the most locked in heading into the trip, so his objective was a little different.

    TE Bryce Dixon didn't know he whether he would continue to entertain UCLA's advances. DE Malik Dorton didn't have complete clarity about the coaches' plans for him.

    But Talamaivao knew he was all USC and, thus, had a different objective this weekend -- convincing good friends and fellow top-flight recruits Damien Mama and JuJu Smith to join him.

    Talamaivao originally scheduled his visit for Jan. 17, but when Mama and Smith booked their officials for Jan. 24, Talamaivao did the same. This weekend, the pals continued to build on their friendship, according to Chris Talamaivao, Viane's father.

    "The best part for Viane was just hanging with the guys," Chris said. "Even Toa Lobendahn and J.R. Tavai came over and met with them. It was great. USC rolled out the red carpet for us. It's for sure that Viane is going to USC. He's completely solid."

    Talamaivao and Mama got a chance to sit down with new offensive line coach Tim Drevno, who arrived this week from the San Francisco 49ers.

    "They like him," Chris said. "He's a real cool guy. They had conversations with him and they're both real excited."

        Why are you saying this? Blair just reported that Dorton is solid with USC. What is your source?

            Looking real good with Damien Mama. He really have close relationship with USC commits Toa and Viane. I don't think he end up anywhere but USC. The people he hang out with this close to NSD are all USC commits and a silent one on Juju Smith. No way he end up anywhere else. IMHO.
