The Trojans have had a more-than-full Class of 2013 for nearly a month, but an already sticky situation could become more so, as Adam Gorney of Rivals is reporting that the USC is in on Tahaan Goodman, a safety and teammate of Chris Hawkins, who has been committed to Troy since April.
#USC has become serious contender for four-star safety Tahaan Goodman.

If Goodman commits, he would give the Trojans three safeties in the Class of 2013, along with Su’a Cravens and Max Redfield. Goodman at 6-foot-2, 185 pounds, has the size to play safety in the Pac-12, and is the second best safety in the country according to Rivals.
With 18 commits in the class, plus the arrival of Silas Redd from Penn State, the Trojans would need two recruits to decommit, if Goodman were to play at USC. Who they could be is entirely unknown.
Judging by the way the committed players talk on to each other Twitter, there’s no signs of anyone not wanting to be a part of the USC program next fall. There are commits like Sebastian LaRue and Nico Fallah that are planning to take all of their official visits, but there aren’t any signs of either one swaying at all.
Keep in mind however, that a year ago, Arik Armstead was committed to USC, and it didn’t take long for the Trojans to become a long shot. Anything can happen.
