Former Oregon commit: USC is back in it, it's a dream school
Seven McGee is a sophomore at East HS in Rochester, N.Y. who USC football fans are very familiar with.
That might seem unusual. The 5-foot-9, 175-pound prospect plays football thousands of miles away from USC’s campus. But McGee was identified as a top recruit for the Trojans earlier this year. And at the time, he was playing at a high school that’s considered a Trojan pipeline.
McGee is originally from Rochester but transferred to Grace Betheren HS in Simi Valley, Calif. for his freshman season. In early 2018, he transferred to Narbonne HS in Harbor City. That’s when he really gained national recognition for his football talents. McGee picked up his first scholarship offer from USC in March and became a name Trojan fans recognized.
McGee also picked up a scholarship offer from Oregon around that same time. He committed to the Ducks in April.
In August, McGee was ripped away from some of his West Coast ties. He transferred to East HS in Rochester before ever playing a down for the Narbonne Gauchos. On September 24, he announced further West Coast tie ripping. He tweeted that morning he was backing off his commitment to Oregon.
But even after moving across the country, and even after parting ways with a Pac-12 football program, McGee insists he could eventually end up as a Trojan. He told USC247.com hours after his announcement that he’ll consider USC going forward.
“USC was a dream school growing up,” McGee told USC247.com when asked why he was considering USC again.
McGee says he hasn’t been in contact with coaches from USC yet but adds that he hopes to hear from them soon.
Besides Oregon and USC, McGee also hold scholarship offers from Arizona State, Florida, Nebraska, Syracuse, Utah. Since he’s so young, he projects to be either an athlete, receiver or tailback at the college level.
