USC is really starting to roll on the recruiting trail. After picking up a commitment earlier in the week from one of the elite receivers in the West, Victor Blackwell (Santa Ana, Calif./Mater Dei), the Trojans landed an even bigger fish with the commitment from arguably the top overall prospect in the region.

DeAnthony Thomas (Los Angels/Crenshaw) has been a big USC lean for months and decided to pull the trigger and end the recruiting process.

"I'm a Trojan," said Thomas. "For me, it was all about being comfortable there. I always said I didn't want to leave home because I'm so close to my family so I was leaning towards playing for one of the two L.A schools. USC is where I felt I fit in the best, where I had the best relationship with the coaches and they recruited me harder than anyone."
