Three-star running back Kenan Christon announced via Twitter that he has committed to play for the USC Trojans on Monday night.

Kenan Christon, the 2019 recruit out of Madison High School in San Diego, California will be playing college ball just a few hours away from his home town.

Christon a three-star running back, had 20 offers from football programs around the country before selecting the USC Trojans as his team of the future. He had announced his top four schools on September 16, which had USC among Alabama, Notre Dame, and UCLA.

The San Diego native is the No. 19 running back in the nation and the No. 46 recruit in the state of California. At 5-foot-10, 185 pounds, he stands taller than fellow Trojan running back commit Jordan Wilmore, though Wilmore has 15 pounds on Christon.

In his SPARQ testing, (speed, power, agility, reaction, and quickness), Christon ran an impressive 4.51 second 40-yard dash, and a 4.46 20-yard shuttle. The running back also has a very high vertical jump of 40.7 inches and an overall SPARQ rating of 104.22.

Christon is one of the most athletic backs in the class of 2019, at Madison High School he is a track star as well as a star football player.

During his high school career, Christon has recorded 2,529 rush yards and 34 total touchdowns. He averages 10.2 yards per carry, and 90.3 yards per game. The three-star also has 145 yards receiving and 330 yards on kick returns.

It’s safe to say this kid is fast and that he will bring added depth to the Trojans’ hunt for the next Ronald Jones II.
