5-star DE: I want to visit USC, no matter what
USC offered a scholarship to universally recognized five-star defensive end Bryan Bresee back in June. Just days after receiving that scholarship offer, the product of Damascus, Md. HS placed the Trojans among his top 15.
We caught up with Bresee at our previous publication just after he released his top list schools. The 6-foot-5, 290-pound junior told us he was interested in the school for all the usual reasons, including football tradition. He also told us he wanted to visit USC’s campus.
After a 2-2 start to the season, USC247.com caught up with Bresee to make sure the Trojans were still in contention for him.
Bresee says USC is still a top school for him. In fact, he plans to visit USC “probably this spring.”
When asked if anything could happen this football season to change those plans, or to make USC unappealing to him, Bresee was confident his interest would remain high. And since he doesn’t plan to make a commitment anytime soon, he says he won’t start paying attention to on field performances until next year.
“Next season will be more important to me because it will be closer to when I get there,” Bresee said. “I think once I get out and visit and check it out, I’ll have a better feel for the school.”
He might not even be concerned about football records at all. Bresee points to many other factors outside of football when asked about his thoughts on USC.
“I just think once it gets closer, not even how they do, but just getting closer with the coaching staff and just seeing how I fit into the school,” Bresee said. “That’s really the most important thing to me.”
USC is one of 15 schools remaining in contention for this budding superstar. He also named Alabama, Clemson, Florida, Georgia, LSU, Maryland, Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Penn State, Texas A&M, Virginia Tech and Wisconsin as remaining contenders back in June.
