Devin Asiasi talked with USC assistant coach Marques Tuiasosopo on Tuesday night and before the conversation was over he had landed his newest offer.
"First he asked how my day was going and how everything was going at my school and with the team and then he told me he was really excited about me, that they're really excited to have me and they wanted to offer me," Asiasi said.
It is definitely a major offer for the 2016 four-star tight end from Concord (Calif.) De La Salle.
The 6-foot-3, 225-pound prospect who shined at the Rivals Camp Series Northern California said he grew up watching the USC football team and that it's something he will seriously consider as his recruitment continues.
"(Tuiasosopo) was telling me they officially offered me and that he wanted me to call coach (Steve) Sarkisian," Asiasi said.
"It's huge. I grew up loving USC. That's been my dream school ever since I was a little kid. My whole family loves USC so this is just big. It's a big thing for me."
Asiasi, rated as the fifth-best tight end and the No. 117 prospect in the 2016 class by Rivals.com, has now been offered by USC, Cal, Illinois, San Jose State, Tennessee, Washington and Washington State.
He said Arizona State and Notre Dame are showing new interest and that he hopes to be able to make a game at USC this season.
The offer from the Trojans is definitely something big but Asiasi does not want to rush a decision this early in his career.
"I'm going to try to make one game at least hopefully during one of my bye weeks," Asiasi said.
"I'm taking it easy still. I'm keeping all options open but it's a big deal to me."
