Looking at the title, one would think this was an in-state battle in the Los Angeles area, right? WRONG.
USC has dipped into its bag of tricks, landing one of the top players from the state of Alabama, 3-Star Wide Receiver Velus Jones. Jones made the decision to Commit to play at USC after talking with his dad late Monday evening, and USC can thank Mobile, AL native Tee Martin for being able to dip into the deep south for such a talented commit.
Jones Committed to the Trojans over offers from UCLA and Georgia Southern among several others.
Jones is an electrifying athlete, who possesses good height at 5-foot-11 and blazing speed with a reported 4.4 40 yard dash time.
For USC to be able to recruit well in the deep south, is HUGE. Looking back at their 2015 class, and how close they came to knocking off Alabama from the top class, winning these types of battles is huge for Coach Sarkisian and his staff.
