On Wednesday, college football programs wrapped up their 2016 recruiting efforts with National Signing Day, and began to ramp things up for 2017. For USC, make that 2017 and beyond. On Friday night, the Trojans landed one of the top quarterbacks in the 2018 class, with the verbal commitment of four-star California native Matt Corral.
Just a sophomore in high school, Corral is currently ranked the No. 2 pro-style quarterback in the class by 247Sports.
Clay Helton has a long time to hang on to Corral, but USC fans have to be happy sitting in pole position for this big-time talent.
