Twenty three college football sides were chasing tight end Josh Falo, and when he finally chose the winner the young giant celebrated with a haka.

Falo, who attended a high school in Sacramento, picked the University of Southern California Trojans.

The 17-year-old, 1.96m Falo, whose family moved from Hawaii to California in 2002, is rated among America's best tight end prospects.

The Bleacher report reckoned: The Haka is a traditional war dance of the Maori people of New Zealand. And while the New Zealand men's rugby team may have brought the Haka into the consciousness of the sports public, it's varied uses really never get old."
