Rule of three

Sometime in the near future, perhaps as early as this fall, a meeting will take place between three very big guys. They will shake hands, exchange contact information and begin friendships that will carry on in college.

For now, though, Jordan Poland (La Jolla, Calif./Country Day School), Toa Lobendahn (Lakewood, Calif./Lakewood) and Casey Tucker (Chandler, Ariz./Hamilton) are strangers. When the three bigs finally gather, they'll realize they have more in common than just a verbal commitment to USC.

These Class of 2014 offensive linemen convey the same trait: Confidence.
