USC recruiting update: Two players sought by Trojans to announce decisions Saturday

USC recruiting update: Two Trojans recruits will announce during the Army All-American Bowl on Saturday

USC’s 2015 recruiting class could get a big boost on Saturday.

Defensive backs Ykili Ross and Marvell Tell, both Trojans targets, will announce their commitments during the Army All-American Bowl at the Alamodome, which will be broadcast by NBC at 10 a.m. PDT.

Ross, a defensive back from Riverside Poly High, said it would be a “dream come true” to commit during the game. He will decide between USC, Notre Dame, Arizona State and Oregon.

Ross has made official visits to USC and Notre Dame. He said he would still visit Arizona State and Oregon to “get my full recruitment and see everything and weigh my options.”

Tell, from Encino Crespi, will choose between USC, Texas A&M and Oregon. He has made official visits to all three.

Cornerback Isaiah Langley, a USC commit who is Tell’s roommate at the Army Bowl, said Tell was “either a Trojan or a good actor.”

Six scholarships remain for USC’s 2015 recruiting class.
