Offensive lineman Chuma Edoga said he remained “All SC” despite Tim Drevno leaving to join Jim Harbaugh’s Michigan coaching staff.
Edoga, from Powder Springs (Ga.) McEachern High, signed a financial-aid agreement with USC in August and will start classes on Monday.
Edoga said at last weekend’s Army All-American Bowl that he had a “pretty good” relationship with Drevno, who coached the Trojans offensive line for one season after coaching many years on Harbaugh’s University of San Diego, Stanford and San Francisco 49ers staffs.
But Edoga said that receivers coach Tee Martin recruited him.
Edoga is one of five new players who will begin classes next week.
The others are quarterback Ricky Town, linebacker Cameron Smith, receiver Isaac Whitney and offensive lineman Roy Hemsley.
