Five-star linebacker Rey Maualuga (6-2, 235, 4.5) from Eureka, Calif., took an unofficial visit to Oregon this past weekend. But he didn’t commit to the Ducks. He is still going through the process.
“Oregon was fun,” Maualuga said. “It was just me and a friend hanging out for a weekend.”
“I will take a visit to USC when they play Notre Dame,” Maualuga said. “I could make my decision on what school shortly after my visit.”

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish could get a visit if Maualuga doesn’t pull the trigger before hand.
Maualuga will participate in the USA All-American Bowl game held in San Antonio, Texas.
