Aziz Shittu, National Signing Day 2012: USC, UCLA In Play For Defensive Lineman

Aziz Shittu, the No. 27 ranked prospect by Rivals, is deciding between Pac-12 Conference schools on National Signing Day 2012. The defensive lineman from Buhach Colony in Atwater, California has narrowed his choices to the Stanford Cardinal, California Bears, USC Trojans, and UCLA Bruins.

The 6'3", 275-pound Shittu is the fifth-highest rated defensive lineman by Rivals. He will make his decision at 2 p.m. PST. "UCLA is definitely in there now too, I had a great visit," Shittu told ESPN after his fourth visit to UCLA earlier this week. "I really enjoyed the campus and the lifestyle there and the intensity the new staff is bringing to the program. What I enjoyed most was hanging out with Coach [Jim] Mora and seeing what a cool person he is. I liked him a lot."
