Now, the San Clemente (Calif.) High School standout will get the opportunity to play closer to home.

“I have the utmost respect and admiration for coach Cutcliffe, the entire coaching staff and Duke University,” Sears told 247Sports. “I wish them nothing but success in the future. I am now a USC Trojan and look forward to starting classes in January.”

Sears also held offers from Florida State, North Carolina, Tennessee, UCLA and many others.

The 6-foot-3, 200-pound signal-caller is currently rated as the No. 5 pro-style quarterback in the nation and a top 20 recruit in the state of California. This is a major get for Clay Helton’s surging program.
