USC made offers to two tight ends in Pennsylvania, Cary Angeline and Naseir Upshur.

“BEYONDBLESSED to receive an offer from #USC,” Upshur wrote.

Safety Jaylon Jones and defensive lineman Justin Madubuike – both from Texas – also announced they had gotten offers from the Trojans.

Local offensive linemen Frank Martin from Santa Ana Mater Dei and Wyatt Davis from Bellflower St. John Bosco received offers.

Martin wrote that it was a “dream offer.”
