ESPN put out its first edition of the ESPN300 recruiting rankings for the football class of 2018 today. Here’s where each of USC’s ESPN300 2018 commits ranks.
ESPN, which is one of the four major recruiting services, published its most notable recruiting list for the class of 2018 for the first time today. Here is how the rankings shook out for each of the each of the ranked players joining the USC Trojans next year. All five of USC’s players made the ESPN300:
Four-star LB Palaie Gaoteote (Las Vegas, NV)
Rank: No. 21
Four-star QB Matt Corral (Long Beach, CA)
Rank: No. 67
Four-star CB Marcus Johnson (Los Angeles, CA)
Rank: No. 139
Four-star OLB Raymond Scott (Harbor City, CA)
Rank: No. 189
Four-star DE Bo Calvert (Westlake Village, CA)
Rank: No. 278
USC is a perfect 5-for-5: five commits in the 2018 class, and five guys landed in the initial ESPN300 rankings. The Trojans are always a recruiting power, and that is continuing after year one of the Clay Helton. 247Sports ranks USC’s class No. 2 in the Pac-12 and No. 14 overall, according to 247Sports. I wouldn’t be surprised to see those numbers rise over the next few months.
