Junior Pomee decides to stay close to Home
The father of highly touted tight end recruit Junior Pomee has indicated that his son will be picking the USC Trojans over the likes of Utah and Arizona.
According to Lya Wodraska of the Salt Lake Tribune, Pomee, a standout at Rancho Verde High School in Moreno Valley, California, prefers to stay closer to home and will join the Trojans.
"We are glad to finally get it over with," said Pomee's father, Kapelieli, Monday night. "Mainly he wanted to stay close to his family."
The 6-foot-3, 215-lbs Pomee is rated a four-star prospect by the Scout.com recruiting service, which also lists him as the 10th overall tight end in the 2011 recruiting class.
Securing the commitment from Pomee would be another major plus for USC this recruiting season.
Although the Trojans reeled in a number of big time tight end recruits in 2010, the position proved difficult to fill last season, with converted wide receivers David Ausberry and Jordan Cameron, along with Blake Ayles, getting the bulk of the playing time.
