OL target Harrison: USC is a great program and a great school
Recruiting in the state of Utah caused the USC coaching staff more heart ache than anything else in the 2019 class. In 2020, those same coaches hope to find prospects willing to commit to leave home for Los Angeles.
That’s where a recruit like Alex Harrison comes in. The 6-foot-6, 300-pound offensive tackle was offered a scholarship to play for the Trojans at the end of January. USC was his second scholarship offer, after the home state Utah State Aggies came through.
USC’s coaching staff hopes the early start gives them a leg up on the rest of the Pac-12. Those offers are certainly coming. The Oregon Ducks and Utah Utes have since offered Harrison as well and many others are watching him closely.
So far, USC’s strategy seems to have worked, at least somewhat. The product of Viewmont HS in Bountiful, Utah says he’s interested in potentially becoming a Trojan.
“I love it,” Harrison said when asked what the USC offer means to him. “It means a ton. They were the first PAC 12 school to offer me and give me a chance. It means a lot. They’re a great program and a great school.”
