USC was in heavy tight end trouble literally a week ago, looking for a solution everywhere they can. Within a week, the Trojans have acquired University of Florida transfer, Daniel Imatorbhebhe officially after he gave the Trojans his word at the Rising Stars camp. Daniel will be joining his brother Josh Imatorhebhe after he committed may 18th. Both will be apart of the incoming 2016 class, while Daniel (blueshirt this season) will practice with the team but will not be able to compete due to NCAA transfer rules. He'll have four years remaining to play for the Trojans.

While this is great news the Trojans landed another HUGE (literally) commit surprisingly. Cary Angeline, the No.4 tight end in the country, committed to the Trojans this past Friday. The highly recruited tight end from Exton, Pennsylvania wrote, "Proud to announce that I'm committed to the University of Southern California Trojans. #FightOn" via Twitter. Angeline is a dynamic receiver at Dowington East, catching 67 passes for 1,031 yards and 10 touchdowns during his junior year. Cary chose the Trojans over more than 30 other schools, including Alabama, Ohio State, Florida, and Pac-12 foe Oregon.

Angeline will fit USC's future offense, being able to provide great run blocking and a big time target in the passing game. He will be apart of a dynamic offensive attack that includes quarterback Matt Fink, wide receiver Josh Imatorbhebhe, and running back Melquise Stovall. Angeline will compete for playing time as a true freshman for the Trojans, which have gotten their prayers for tight end depth answered. The Trojans now have the No.1 recruiting class in the Pac-12 and rated No.11 in the nation.
