Tucker in for 2014
And the beat goes on.
Not satisfied with having perhaps the best recruiting class for the year 2013, now the Trojans are beginning to work their recruiting magic on the class of 2014. USC is getting it done on the all important offensive front.
Wednesday, Casey Tucker from Chandler (Ariz.) Hamilton became the third offensive lineman in the 2014 class to commit to USC.
"I just thought that USC was no-brainer and its the school for me," Tucker said about his USC decision. "I just loved everything about USC and I loved it there."
Tucker pretty much knew that USC was where he wanted to go while visiting the SC campus last week
"I was just kind of ready for USC to be a good campus and stuff," Tucker said. "I thought I would like the coaches and I thought it was going to be a pretty good visit.
"As the visit went on, things just got better and better. I was like, 'Wow, this university offers so much. How could I pass this up?'
"I have been doing a lot of college research and that's why I am actually making my college decision early because I know that USC is all around perfect for me compared to the other schools that I have been researching.
"Other schools have some cons, but I just found all positives with USC. I don't want to pass up the opportunity that I have right now.
"Everything at USC was a little bit better I than expected. Everywhere I looked there was another thing to be impressed by. It was just one thing after another. The new facilities...
"The new John McKay Center looks really good. There is actually an underground turf field. There is about 30-yards of underground turf fields that you can practice on. You can do agility stuff and the weight room, the size of it, there is a lot of space to work out in."
Tucker makes it three offensive lineman committed to the Trojans for the class of 2014. He joins Toa Lobendahn from Lakewood, Calif., and Jordan Poland from La Jolla (Calif.) Country Day.
With these three recruits, USC has pretty much locked up their offensive line classes for the next two years and they have set the course for the future.
