One of the top two-sport athletes in the country has made his college decision. He's decided to head to the Pac-12.

Drake London, a four-star basketball and football recruit, has committed to USC. He will be playing both basketball and football for the Trojans.

The top recruit will be using a football scholarship, so he'll technically be listed as a walk-on for the Trojans' basketball team.

London is a four-star shooting guard and a four-star wide receiver. He's ranked the No. 46 WR in the 2019 class and the No. 325 player overall.

247Sports has the news on his decision:

“Everybody was trying to get involved,” BTI Prospects coach Robert Icart told 247Sports.

London picked the Trojans over Virginia. From a football standpoint, London compiled interest from Nebraska, Oregon, UCLA, Virginia, Cal, Notre Dame, Pittsburgh, Utah, Vanderbilt and Wisconsin. For hoops, Arizona, Kansas and a host of others inquired according to Icart.

On the field, London, who stands 6-foot-4, is regarded as the No. 325 player in the 247Sports Composite Rankings.

“London is one of the most physical pass-catchers in the region in the 2019 class,” 247Sports football analyst Brandon Huffman said. “He's got good size and explosiveness as a receiver, which is why he's such a high-level basketball player, able to go up and get the ball, great body control and length and willingness to mix it up with a defensive back or a linebacker covering him, shedding the defender to get the ball.

USC's 2019 football class is ranked the No. 54 class in the country. London is currently their second-highest rated recruit.
