Gustin discussed why he chose USC during his commitment ceremony, streamed online:

"I got to know the coaching staff pretty well over the last couple of months. I feel like their program is on the rise. Their last couple of recruiting classes have been great and I think they can only go up from here. I love the coaching staff and USC is great football traditionally and I think it's going to go back to that. I don't think I could go wrong with them."
