USC hosts several recruits on final weekend of official visits

USC hosted several recruits for a final weekend of official visits before signing day Wednesday.

The Trojans have 13 players committed, seven of whom have enrolled in spring courses, and seven scholarships available.


Tight end Devin Asiasi and defensive lineman Boss Tagaloa headlined the group. The duo from De La Salle High in Concord, Calif., also made trips together to UCLA, Washington and Michigan. Tagaloa has visited California as well.

Asiasi, 6-feet-4 and 265 pounds, and Tagaloa, 6-feet-1 and 295 pounds, are scheduled to announce their decisions Wednesday on ESPN2 during the noon hour.

Quinn Nordin, a kicker from Rockford, Mich., last week announced his decommitment from Penn State and a trip to USC in one fell swoop.

Nordin, 6-feet-2 and 200 pounds, also has made an official visit to Michigan and was among a few recruits who hosted Coach Jim Harbaugh for an in-home visit that reportedly included a sleepover as well as Harbaugh attending a day of high school classes.

Nordin will announce his decision Wednesday.

USC, with just one defensive back committed in the class, has made a late push for Jamel Cook, who committed to Florida State last February. The 6-foot-4, 185-pound defensive back also visited Auburn and Louisville.

Five of the 13 players committed to USC's 2016 class are receivers, so it seems unlikely a sixth receiver would want to join, but Keyshawn Young from Miami Senior also made a trip.

The 5-foot-11, 160-pound Young possibly could play defensive back. He has made official visits to Florida State, Louisville and Michigan.

Young made a trip to Los Angeles last summer to participate in a seven-on-seven summer camp; however, he did not visit USC's campus.

He will announce his decision Wednesday.
