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 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.
Of that group, none will be back next season, with Ayles transferring to Miami (FL) and Ausberry and Cameron both graduating seniors.
Wodraska also indicated that the addition of Pomee could tip the scales in favor of USC for cornerback recruit Ryan Henderson.
Henderson, a teammate of Pomee's at Rancho Verde, is said to be considering either the Utes or the Trojans, but has mentioned in the past the he would like to play with his high school teammate.
While he gave a soft verbal to Utah early on, Pomee joining the USC football program could mean Henderson will opt to renege on his commitment to Utah.
