Nico Falah is down to USC and Washington and the Trojans will have the last chance to impress the four-star offensive tackle from Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco.
After the U.S. Army All-American Bowl last weekend, Falah was seen talking with both the USC and Washington coaching staffs.
His trip to USC on Jan. 18 will be it for Falah as he finalizes his decision.
The four-star said the visit is crucial in his decision-making process.
"I'm going to finalize everything after my USC official visit and I'll go on from there," Falah said. "It's important. That's the final calling card for them. I want to see if it's the right fit for me and see if I fit in good there."
Oregon and many other teams were involved throughout the recruiting process, but Falah said he's only considering the Huskies and Trojans in the final weeks before signing day.
The St. John Bosco prospect held his own last week at the Army game and definitely proved he can be a contributor at either Pac-12 school.
He's still a little undersized, but Falah moves well and is surprisingly strong. He didn't have any issues controlling some of the best defensive ends in the 2013 class.
"There were a lot of five-star and four-star guys at defensive end and I felt really good against them," Falah said. "I felt comfortable. I didn't feel overpowered or anything. I was comfortable going against them and it's a plus for me. I'll try to work on my strength and get better."
