Porter Gustin, the number one linebacker recruit in the nation, committed to USC today, picking the Trojans most notably over national champion Ohio State, who appeared to be Gustin's runner-up. He is the 25th ranked high school player overall in the country. Although USC was always the favorite to land Gustin, his choice was still relatively up in the air until the announcement giving the Trojans their 21st commitment for the 2015 recruiting class.
Gustin was recruited by both Marques Tuiasosopo and Peter Sirmon, who coach the tight ends and the linebackers respectively. This could suggest the possibility that Gustin may be used on the offensive side as well, as he certainly has the size to play tight end.
