Video: 5-Star Recruit Juju Smith Fakes Toward Oregon Hat, Then Chooses USC

While this wasn't quite what Kansas basketball commit Cliff Alexander did to Illinois fans back in November, USC football commit John "Juju" Smith is going to have some enemies in Eugene, Oregon after today. Smith made his collegiate decision in front of a national audience on ESPNU, choosing between hats representing Oregon, Notre Dame, UCLA and USC. He eventually chose the Trojans lid, but not before faking towards the Ducks swag.

Oregon and USC are, of course, conference rivals. So perhaps Smith just wanted to get things heated up before he even arrives in Los Angeles.
