USC coaches make an impression on four-star target

USC coaches make an impression on four-star target

USC continues to recruit tight ends aggressively, despite switching to an offense that favors the wide receiver.

The Trojans already have tight end Jack Yary committed in the 2020 class. The coaching staff hopes to add even more tight ends before this recruiting cycle is done.

The position continues to be a priority in the 2021 class as well. The latest USC scholarship offer went out to a four-star 2021 tight end in Terrance Ferguson.

Ferguson announced the scholarship offer on twitter and pinned the announcement to the top of his profile. When USC247.com caught up with him about the offer, he expressed sincere excitement.

“It means a lot every opportunity to get to play at the next level and give me more options is very important,” Ferguson said. “I’d say USC is definitely an option and I’ve had a very good first impression.”

While the product of Heritage HS in Littleton, Colo. hasn’t visited USC and doesn’t know if or when that will happen, he already feels comfortable with the idea. He said he will “hopefully” visit the campus when asked about a potential trip to Los Angeles.

His feelings about the Trojans were helped along on by his conversation with coaches the night of the offer. Specifically, Graham Harrell and Lenny Vandermade.

In fact, the highly ranked prospect says he’s even willing to forgive USC’s recent struggles.

“No I don’t think that matters a ton,” Ferguson said when asked if USC’s struggles impact his feelings on the school. “I can see them having a good year this year and they’re trying to build a good program. But winning is a priority.”

The Trojan staff does have time to show Ferguson improvement. He doesn’t have to sign a letter of intent until February of 2021 and says he doesn’t know when he wants to make a commitment.
