National Signing Day is today, and the Trojans are looking to fill out their roster for the 2019 football team.
The Trojans have signed seven 3-star and 4-star recruits in the last day. The Trojans secured 19 recruits before today’s recruiting frenzy. USC’s recruiting class ranking has moved up one spot from No. 18 to No. 17, good for the second-best class in the Pac-12.
Here is a rundown of the newest Trojans for the 2019 class:
Jaylen Watson (Augusta, Georgia; Ventura College)
Three-star cornerback Watson is a junior college transfer ranked 10th among JUCO cornerbacks by 24/7 Sports. Watson played at Long Beach City College and Ventura College before committing to play for the Trojans in late January.
Dorian Hewett (Houston, Texas; North Shore)
Hewett signs with USC after committing to the Trojans yesterday following his decommitment from Syracuse on January 15th. A three-star safety, Hewett won the Texas state championship this season.
