On Saturday, at the conclusion of several consecutive camps, USC landed prized Florida defensive tackle Keyshon Camp.
Camp, a former Miami Hurricanes commitment, made his verbal commitment to USC head coach Steve Sarkisian and then took to Twitter to make the announcement official, posting, “I’m Announcing that Im Officially commiting to USC #FightOn#Trojans.”
College coaches nationally jumped at a chance to recruit the 6-foot-4, 275 pound tackle. At the conclusion of his junior season he had posted a stat line of 71 tackles (38 solo), 19 tackles for a loss, 5.0 sacks, a fumble recovery returned for a touchdown, and a safety.
In total Camp has 24 offers from programs like Alabama, Florida, Kentucky, Louisville, Miami, Duke, FIU, Georgia Tech, Indiana, Iowa State, Marshall, Michigan, NC State, Northwestern, and Western Kentucky. USC, UCLA, Oregon, Miami and Kentucky were among the schools heavily pushing for Camp's commitment.
USC now has 13 verbal commitments in its 2016 recruiting class. Camp is the second commitment in as many days after the Trojans picked up Pennsylvania tight end Cary Angeline on Friday.
