Three-star OT Monheim commits to USC
USC added yet another three-star lineman to its class on Saturday when Jonah Monheim announced on Twitter that he intended to become a Trojan.
“I would like to thank every coach and program that has shown interest and invested their time in me a sa student-athlete,” Monheim said. “I am extremely humbled and greatly appreciative for all the incredible opportunities that have been presented to me. Additionally, I would like to thank my family, friends, coaches, mentors and teachers who have helped me become the person that I am today, on and off the field. For this next chapter in life, I am excited to announce that I will be continuing my academic and athletic career at the University of Southern California.”
The three-star lineman trend at USC is getting a bit ridiculous. The Trojans now have five different three-star offensive linemen committed in the 2020 class.
That being said, Monheim might be the best of the bunch. The product of Moorpark, Calif. HS chose USC over scholarship offers from all over the Pac-12, along with Oklahoma, Michigan, Notre Dame and other traditional powers.
The addition of the 6-foot-5, 280-pound lineman gives USC eleven commitments in the 2020 class. He’s also one of the signature pieces of this class so far, despite his moderate ranking.
