Toa Lobendahn met with new offensive line coach Mike Summers during his USC junior day visit last weekend and with James Cregg expected to stay on staff that's only good news for the early 2014 commit.
Lobendahn, who recently transferred to La Habra, Calif., said he was impressed with his initial meeting with Summers and he likes that Cregg is staying.
He sees it as a double dose of coaching and the 6-foot-4, 270-pound four-star offensive lineman said his commitment remains firm.
"It was a pretty good day for me," Lobendahn said. "I got to talk with a lot of the coaches even some of the new ones who just got on staff only hours ago. It was pretty good and they showed me what I wanted to see.
"(Summers) seems like another guy who's on board. He liked me a lot and he wants to get me out there as much as possible. He seems like a cool guy.
"Both are going to be coaching, Cregg is going to be coaching too, so it's kind of like an add-on so it's even more help for the linemen. It's pretty cool."
Many other programs have gotten involved with Lobendahn, who's been committed to the Trojans since June, and he said his weekend trip only reinforced his decision to stick with USC.
Meeting Summers and talking with the coaches again was an important step for Lobendahn, who said he's really not even considering other programs at this point in his recruitment.
"I'm pretty 100 percent with it, even more after this visit," Lobendahn said of his commitment. "I know it's the right place for me to go and get prepared for the next level."
Rivals.com rates the La Habra standout as the No. 138 prospect in the 2014 class.
