Steve Sarkisian landed a nice pickup his first recruiting class at USC with the commitment of four-star prospect Damien Mama, the No. 1 offensive guard in the class of 2014.
At 6-foot-5, 360 pounds, Mama is one of the most physically imposing linemen in this class. The Bellflower, Calif., native is the No. 4 prospect in the state and chose the Trojans over UCLA, Alabama and BYU.
USC has had issues with depth along the offensive line, and in 2014 the Trojans will have to replace two starters, center Marcus Martin and right tackle Kevin Graf. Four-star offensive linemen commits Toa Lobendahn, Chris Brown and Viane Talamaivao, along with Mama, should help with the transition.Lane
