USC target Korey Foreman’s work ethic on display

New, 1 comment

I recently interviewed Foreman, USC’s No. 1 target for the class of 2021, about his work ethic in the face of the pandemic

The USC Trojans sealed up a solid class of signees in the Early Signing Day Period, but at this rate, we all know that the No. 1 overall recruit for the class of 2021 and top USC target, Korey Foreman, has apparently signed his letter of intent, but intends to announce his college choice on January 2.

Foreman, whose incredible work ethic was on full display, recently sat down with me for an interview. The high-school graduate and Winner Circle Athletics Prep Academy standout has faced a ton of adversity in making his school choice ahead in the middle of a global pandemic. From canceled visits to evolving his workout regiment around virtual classes and meetings, somehow, Foreman continued to get even better during the pandemic.

He said he’s dropped weight in the right places, added muscle in others and has even shed time off his measurables from the last documented ‘Regional’ combine event he took part in back in 2019.

Foreman also told me that he’s been able to take part in a bevy of events since the pandemic hit and the CIF canceled the football seasons this fall. That is, of course, thanks to his program at Winner Circle Athletics, led by founder Jordan Campbell.

“Everything flipped around for me and I no longer could see my team, go to camps or stick to my schedule that I had laid out for me before graduating early in January,” Foreman said of his life post-COVID-19’s appearance. “But after that, I was still able to compete at the Top 100 Showcase, Hard Knocks camp and in a game versus Washington in November with Winner Circle. I have been in the lab grinding and it’s felt good to apply what I’ve learned from training this offseason to the showcase & games I was able to play in through WCA.”

Winner Circle has challenged the CIF rules this summer and into the fall and have put together quite the resume as the top-area academy to attend in Southern California. From Foreman to others, WCA is likely to have this year and the next two years’ worth of No. 1 recruits come through their program. And that doesn’t even include the former greats that are current NFL pros that continually stop by.

“WCA helped me make the transition from eighth grade to high school, and now that I’ve been able to get back to work with WCA and train with the top players like Kenny Clark and everyone else who trains, here it’s been great for my overall development mentally and physically,” Foreman said.

Foreman’s work ethic was on full display during the interview with him and Campbell was absolutely integral in getting Foreman to where he is today. It was quite the feeling, chatting about how Foreman wanted to make sure he could better the lives of others going through the recruiting process like he has and shed light on what has kept him so balanced through the whole process. WCA is a testament to that, and I cannot encourage anyone who is in the area to give them a visit as soon as possible.
