USC hauls in another defensive lineman

Austin Maloata (Corona, Calif./Centennial) didn't need to think about it long.

Just hours after learning he had landed a scholarship offer from childhood favorite USC, the defensive end sat down with his family to discuss the plan of attack.

As it turned out, there was no need for a discussion. The 6-foot-3, 250-pound transfer from Samoa decided to commit to the Trojans, becoming the fifth member, and third defensive lineman, in USC's 2014 recruiting class.
