In a surprise move, one four-star offensive lineman has decommitted from USC ahead of the 2023 high school football season.

Taking to Twitter, 2024 offensive tackle Manasse Itete from Central  Catholic High School announced that he has decided to decommit. 

He said that it was a difficult decision but that he intends to announce his new commitment this weekend. 

"After much consideration with my family, I have decided to DECOMMIT from USC. 

I sincerely appreciate your understanding and want you to know that this was a difficult choice or decision to make. 

Please accept my apologies for the inconvenience and disappointment.  That being said, I'll announce my commitment tomorrow Saturday," Itete  wrote. 

247Sports rates  Itete as the No. 331 overall prospect in the Class of 2024. He is the  No. 26 offensive tackle in the country and the No. 28 prospect from the  state of California.

As of writing, 247Sports has Florida State as his most likely destination.

USC still boast a superb 2024 recruiting class even with only half of  its ranks filled. 247Sports ranks it top 15 in the country even after  Itete's decommitment. 

Lincoln Riley can't get them all, but he's got more than enough to  ensure that the Trojans continue to ascend into being a national power  again.
