RB target Ngata expects to visit USC soon
While USC is transitioning to the wide open, pass friendly offense known as the Air Raid, running the ball is still a necessity for the Trojans
That means tailbacks are a priority. Especially fast tailbacks who can also help in the passing game.
Enter Daniyel Ngata. The 5-foot-9, 190-pounder from Folsom, Calif. HS fits exactly what USC coaches are looking for. On Thursday, USC’s Mike Jinks offered Ngata a scholarship.
“The new running backs coach had texted me to call him after I get out of class,” Ngata told USC247.com shortly after receiving the USC offer. “I had called him right after that and he had offered me right away and had said he wanted to talk later tonight.”
When asked what the scholarship offer means to him, Ngata said “(It) means I should take more time in my recruitment ad focus on these new offers coming in.”
That’s a big step, considering his older brother Joseph just signed with the Clemson Tigers. The younger Ngata also holds a scholarship from Clemson and many expect him to follow his brother to play for the defending national champions.
He’s now publicly stating he’ll look at other options and taking his own path.
Ngata also says he expects to visit USC soon as he’s regularly in Los Angeles to play 7-on-7 football. USC247.com will provide an update if and when he does visit campus.
