Commits S Su’a Cravens, RB Justin Davis, DL Kylie Fitts and QB Max Browne made their allegiance to Troy official when they signed their Letter of Intent papers and turned them in to USC on Wednesday. The trio will enroll at USC in January, getting a head start on their college career.
A few of the newest members of the Trojan family took to Twitter Wednesday night to talk about this exciting moment in their lives:

Additionally, CB Chris Hawkins beat these three commits to the punch when he sent in his official papers to USC on Saturday during football practice, according to Rivals’s Gerard Martinez.
DT Kenny Bigelow is the last commit that will join the ranks of Troy in January, and he is expected to turn in his papers on Thursday.
Cravens is may the headliner of this bunch, as he is top recruit in California. With him enrolling early, he gets a head start on assimilating into USC’s defense, which is critical as the Trojans will break in a brand new secondary, in addition to a new defensive coordinator
Like Cravens, the athletes coming to USC in January will have a leg up on the competition from their classmates, and some of them could even perform well enough in the spring to be a factor going forward in the fall.
On Feb. 6, the rest of USC’s Class of 2013 commits will sign their Letters of Intent as apart of National Signing Day.
