The USC Trojans added yet another player to their growing future depth chart with three-star all-purpose back Jordan Willmore.

Wilmore hailing from Lawndale, California committed to the Trojans on Sunday via Twitter.

The 5 foot 8, 200 pound running back is the No. 6 rated all-purpose back in the nation and the No. 51 recruit in California according to 247Sports.

The class of 2019 commit had received several offers from schools such as Arizona State, Boise State, Oregon, and Nebraska before choosing to lace up for USC.

During his two years at Lawndale, Wilmore has recorded 4,509 yards, 61 total touchdowns, and averages 180.4 rush yards per game.

Wilmore is the first running back commit for USC’s class of 2019 and will join Stephen Carr, Vavae Malepeai, and Markese Stepp to compete for playing time next season.

With senior Aca’Cedric Ware graduating in 2018, the Trojans will be needing to pad their depth at the position for 2019. Whether USC will look to an all-purpose back like Wilmore or a power back like Stepp in the seasons to come will be an interesting detail to see unfold.
