2019 DB Marist Liufau on USC offer: It's definitely one of my top schools
On Tuesday, USC’s Johnny Nansen contacted a 2019 prospect who he believed would be a perfect fit for USC’s defensive backfield.
That prospect would be Marist Liufau, a universally recognized three-star from Punahou HS in Honolulu.
After a few days of looking at Liufau’s film, the rest of the Trojan coaching staff decided they want him. They offered a scholarship offer to Liufau play safety Friday evening. The 6-foot-2, 170-pounder says “oh yeah definitely” when asked if USC is now one of his top schools.
“It’s amazing, it’s so rich in history in football and athletics, escpectially with Polynesian players,” Liufau said of USC. “I just see myself going where they went.”
He just isn’t yet sure if he’ll visit USC.
“We’ll see because I have to talk it over with my parents,” Liufau said when asked if he would take an official visit to USC. “I think it’s very likely. With the type of program it is, it’s tough to not take a visit and get a feel for what it is and if I could see myself there for the next couple of years.”
Liufau has never visited USC before and will only see it if he takes an official visit. When pressed on the issue of visiting campus again, he replied “I think so.”
It doesn’t seem like he’s close to making any sort of decision regarding his college future. He doesn’t have any official visits set and says he doesn’t know when he will set them. He doesn’t even have top schools yet and doesn’t know when he wants to commit. When asked about a letter of intent, Liufau says he plans to sign a letter of intent in February.
