'SC recruiting moving along nicely

Update #1: USC also picked up a commitment today from junior college OL David Garness, who is presently ranked No. 4 junior college OT by Rivals. He will enroll in January. - JK

(Apologies for the heavy reliance on the OC Register but I'm short on time and this is decent news...)

It's no secret that Lane Kiffin is looking to use junior college transfers and midyear enrollments to plug some of the gaps on the lines/ defense, as well as address the pending scholarship reductions.

Over the last several days, there's been some success on the transfer and general recruiting front:

  • Isiah Wiley, a cornerback JC transfer from Arizona Western Community College, gave a verbal commitment and looks likely to enroll in January
  • J.R. Tavai from Mira Costa High committed to SC. He's primarily a defensive lineman but plays some offense as well, there's some thought that he could be penciled in to play at fullback as well
  • George Farmer from Serra HS of Gardena has given a verbal; he's rated very highly overall in the nation, never mind at his position.

On top of the solid results in November and early December, this is encouraging. Obviously we have to see if these become solid written commitments, but it's exciting to see that good young players still want to play at SC.

Fight On!
