defensive lineman Torrodney Prevot to Southern California. Prevot reportedly informed the USC coaching staff he was withdrawing his commitment with the Trojans on Tuesday before signing elsewhere Wednesday.

Prevot and his explosive pass-rushing skills will instead be going to a Pac-12 conference foe, after he chose Oregon over USC and Texas A&M Wednesday morning. For the third year in a row (De'Anthony Thomas and Arik Armstead the last two years), the Ducks steal a recruit on or just before National Signing Day.
