Local standout quarterback Ricky Town was at USC practice Sunday afternoon and signed a financial aid agreement with the Trojans, becoming the first recruit to sign with Coach
The paperwork is a binding agreement from the university, guaranteeing Town one of 25 available scholarships in 2015. It enables USC unlimited access to Town throughout the remainder of his recruitment.
Town, however, remains an available prospect for other programs to recruit and can still opt to sign elsewhere.
He was once verbally committed to Coach
Town is a candidate to sign the early financial aid paperwork given his current academic standing at Ventura St. Bonaventure High, which shows satisfactory progress toward midyear graduation.
A recruit is able to sign a financial-aid agreement six months before February's National Signing Day.
The 6-foot-3 202-pound quarterback will play his senior season at St. Bonaventure before enrolling at USC for the spring semester, which will enable him to participate in Trojan spring practices.
