USC Trojans landed one commit before Wednesday’s National Signing Day. Three star safety Jayden Williams committed to USC in a video posted on his social media account Tuesday evening. Williams also had offers from Oregon and Washington.
Williams is rated the No. 113 safety in the 2019 class and ranked 1,345 in the nation per 247 Sports composite. At 6-foot-1, 190 pounds, the three-star prospect out of Corona Centennial has the versatility to move to cornerback if needed. Williams took a visit to USC back on February 1st. He will now join his teammate in four-star defensive end Drake Jackson, who is currently enrolled after committing to the Trojans back during the early signing period.
In 12 games his senior season, Williams recorded 44 tackles, three for loss, two interceptions, six passes defended, one forced fumble, and blocked a kick.
The commitment of Williams now gives USC seven commits at defensive back in the 2019 class. Four-star cornerback Max Williams and three-star cornerback Trey Davis, and Britton Allen committed back in December during the early signing period. Both Allen and Williams are currently enrolled at USC. Three-star safety Kaulana Makaula and three star JUCO cornerback Jaylen Watson both committed to the Trojans two weekends ago and three star cornerback Dorian Hewett committed only an hour before Williams.
USC currently at a need of depth at defensive back. Cornerback Ajane Harris, Johnathan Lockett, Iman Marshall, Marvell Tell, and Isiah Langley all graduated while Bubba Bolden, Yikili Ross, and Je’Quari Godfrey transferred out of the program. Last season the Trojans were face with depth issues due to injuries and transfers. They now look to replenish it for the 2019 season.
