LOS ANGELES–Jaden Dumdumaya, a two-time CIF North Section and CIF State Champion from Concord, Calif., and Tyler Greenspahn, a 3a Illinois State Champion from Winnetka, Ill., have both signed with the USC men’s golf program, Trojan head coach Mark Hankins announced today (Nov. 9).
Dumdumaya, a nationally ranked junior talent, is a nominee for 2023 Athlete of the Year at De La Salle HS after he led the varsity team to wins at the East Bay Athletic League Championships, Champions Invitational, CIF NorCal Section and the 2022 and 2023 CIF State Championships. He also led his team to a third place finish at the PGA High School Championship.
