Top 3 Commitments
WDE Oluwole Betiku
Rashan Gary gets the publicity, but Betiku may end up being the best defensive lineman in the class. He's super explosive and dominant getting push at the point of attack -- both as a run stopper and pass rusher.
WR Michael Pittman
Pittman had a 16-catch, 354-yard game in the final game of his prep career. He's got the athleticism to be a major playmaker, but it's his durablity as a volume catcher which intrigues us.
WR Tyler Vaughns
This is a DEEP wide receiving class for USC, but it's Pittman and Vaughns who we've got tabbed as the team's 1-2 wideout punch as the years go on.
Class National Ranking (Per 247Sports): 8
