Stockton (Calif.) RB Justin Davis took an unofficial visit to USC on April 5 and he knew after that visit he wanted to be a Trojan.
And he announced his commitment to USC a few minutes ago via text messages.
"I pretty much knew I was going to commit to USC after my last visit," said Davis. "But I owed it to myself to see some other schools. USC has the one of the best combinations of academics and athletics in nation and the opportunity to come in a compete for an chance to start is great, and one of the two factors in making my decision."
Another factor in Davis choosing the Trojans over California and Washington is the recruiting class USC is assembling this year.
"With USC having scholarship limitations, I think it may have made them step up their game with recruiting, because they need to bring the best quality players. And that's what they are doing. It's going to be great knowing I'm a part of one of the best recruiting classes in the nation and I know we have an opportunity to win right away. And I've been talking to Ty (Isaac) the past couple of weeks and we're both on the same page, and look forward to playing with each other and things started."
Having an opportunity to coached by one of the best RBs coaches in the country was also a factor in Davis committing to USC.
"Coach (Kennedy) Polamalu being at USC is another reason for my decision," Davis said. "My mom loves him and he's friends with the family, and I know he'll help set me up later in life on and off the football field. A mentoe like him will set you up for success."
Davis said he will come down to USC for one game and then take an official visit as well.
