USC landed a massive commitment on Sunday as linebacker Palaie Gaoteote announced his pledge to the Trojans. Gaoteote is the nation's No. 1 outside linebacker and No. 41 overall prospect, and held offers from Alabama, Florida State, LSU, Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas, UCLA and others. Ohio State was firmly in the mix as Gaoteote attends Las Vegas Bishop Gorman, which just produced Buckeyes signees Tate Martell and Haskell Garrett. But USC was able to continue adding to its stellar 2018 class, as Gaoteote gives the Trojans their sixth ESPN 300 prospect and third ESPN 300 linebacker. USC now holds commitment from two of the top five and four of the top 12 prospects in the West region.
