Four-star returns from USC

Four-star defensive tackle Christian Tupou (6-3, 260, 4.8) from Sacramento (Calif.) Grant has returned from his visit to USC and now he faced with a very tough decision.
"My visit to USC was nice overall," Tupou said. "I still have to weigh my options."
The schools still in the running are USC, Oregon State, Arizona State, BYU and Fresno State.
"I will make up my mind on Wednesday," Tupou said. "It is going to be a tough decision.
"I'm feeling really good about USC so we will see how the next two days go," Tupou said. "USC did a great job last night for what they had in store for us.
"Oregon State, BYU and Fresno State offered me early in the season so I already developed a good relationship with them," Tupou said. "Arizona State and USC popped in at the same time and offered at the same time.
Arizona State is the only school that Tupou hasn't visited as of yet.
"If I'm feeling Arizona State I would delay signing until I take an unofficial visit there," Tupou said. "Now I going to kick back and take it all in and decided where I fit in best."
Whoever lands Tupou is going to get a player who is much grounded and has a very realistic outlook on being a freshman.
"No school is going to bring in a freshman and promise him PT without seeing him compete in practice and perform on the next level," Tupou said. "You have to prove yourself all over again."
As a senior, while attracting a lot double teams, Tupou accounted for 92 tackles, five sacks and blocked one punt.
