USC’s coaching staff aims to sign two tailbacks in the 2019 class and on Monday, they got closer to that goal.

That’s when San Diego Madison HS tailback Kenan Christon announced his commitment to USC on KUSI TV. Christon is USC’s second tailback commit in the 2019 class, joining Lawndale HS’s Jordan Wilmore.

The 5-foot-10, 185-pounder chose to join Wilmore and other star prospects at USC over other schools on his impressive list of scholarship offers. The Trojans were among four finalists that also featured Alabama, Notre Dame and UCLA.

When asked why he committed to the USC Trojans, Christon revealed a few reasons.

“When I went up to USC the first time, I just had a great vibe,” Christon told KUSI TV. “Even then, they didn’t really know who I was, I got a great vibe up there. The next time I went up there, it continued to give me a great vibe, I saw how the players were really put together.”

When asked if the USC being close to San Diego played a role in his commitment, Christon acknowledged that it did.

Christon was offered a scholarship to USC back in March and was made a priority by Keary Colbert, Tim Drevno and Eric Ziskin. He was originally scheduled to take an official visit to USC at the end of June but he cancelled that trip. He has not yet announced a new date for his official visit but he has visited USC multiple times unofficially.
