Stanford commit grateful for USC offer
Oaks Christian HS in Thousand Oaks, Calif. is a school USC usually doesn’t have any problem recruiting. But in recent years, there’s been nothing easy for the Trojan coaching staff when it comes to getting a Lion to sign a letter of intent.
The 2020 class likely offers more of the same. The Trojans are already coming from behind while recruiting wide receiver Bryce Farrell.
The 5-foot-11, 180-pound prospect is already committed to Stanford. He made that pledge back in the summer of 2018. He picked Stanford and held firm in his commitment, despite scholarship offers from all over the Pac-12, not to mention offers from traditional powers like Michigan, Nebraska and Notre Dame.
But USC might still have a chance to sign Farrell. That’s because the Trojan coaching staff offered him a scholarship at the end of February, eight months after Farrell committed to Stanford.
Being late to the party is never a positive, but USC coaches knows Farrell made a commitment without having his hometown school as an option. And while Farrell hasn’t backed off his commitment, he’s expressed some interest in USC.
“I’m just really grateful that a school as good as USC sees potential in me,” Farrell told USC247.com.
