USC has flipped former Minnesota commit Jide Abasiri following an official visit to Southern Cal this past week.

Abasiri had been committed to Minnesota since March of this year. The Prior Lake, Minnesota native decommitted from the Golden Gophers program on Dec. 11.

Abasiri is a fringe 3/4-star defensive lineman depending on which recruiting site you prefer to reference. The 6-5, 290 pound defender is considered to be the No. 65 overall DL in the country, as well as the No. 4 prospect out of Minnesota in the Class of 2024.

Here’s Abasiri’s post announcing his commitment to USC from X, formerly Twitter:

USC’s 2024 cycle continues to inch its way up the national rankings. 247Sports places USC’s 2024 class at No. 17 in the composite with pledges from 9 4-star prospects.

Abasiri represents USC’s 2nd defensive line commitment in just the past week, joining Vanderbilt transfer Nate Clifton. He’s the sole defensive line recruit from the high school ranks and the 18th addition to the Trojans’ 2024 class.
