USC swings by "The Kumite" camp

CORONA, Calif. -- Five USC representatives, including head coach Steve Sarkisian and recruiting coordinator Peter Sirmon, dropped by Prime Time Polynesian’s “The Kumite” linemen camp on Sunday to check out the high-intensity competition and get a glimpse at some potential prospects.

The staff’s involvement came as no surprise given that USC incoming freshmen Viane Talamaivao, Damien Mama, Toa Lobendahn and John “Juju” Smith were some of the college-bound prospects to compete in last year’s event, raising the anticipation level for this year's version.
