After landing a commitment from the nation’s top true center in four-star Brett Neilon, the hot recruiting period continues for the Trojans as Kingsburg (Calif.) High School offensive tackle Andrew Vorhees verbally committed to the Trojans through Twitter.

Vorhees selected the Trojans over the likes of Oregon, UCLA, and other suitors. In all, the three-star tackle claims offers from 12 total schools including 9 PAC-12 schools such as Arizona, Oregon, and UCLA. The Trojans had been considered the favorites for the talented lineman’s pledge for a couple of weeks now with the Bruins and the Ducks seen as USC’s only real threats.
With Vorhees now on board, the Trojans have a total of eight prospects committed in their 2017 recruiting class, which ranks as the 30th best class overall per 247sports and as the 18th best class overall per Scout.
I expect guys like Vorhees and fellow offensive lineman Brett Neilon to become vocal leaders of the Trojan’s 2017 class as well as extremely vocal recruiters. The Trojans currently have a group of 3-4 prospects that I could see flipping to other programs, so look for the newest commits to really attempt to forge a brotherhood amongst those already committed and those who stand as top targets for USC.
