On a day when the USC Trojans offered several Class of 2015 recruits at their annual Elite Junior Day, newly appointed head coach Steve Sarkisian got his second pledge to the most important recruiting class in years.
Taeon Mason, an unrated cornerback and wide receiver athlete out of Muir High School in Pasadena, Calif. committed to USC, according to Greg Biggins of FOX Sports and Scout.

Mason played in all three phases of the game as a junior this past season, and the Trojans became his second Pac-12 offer, following Oregon State.
With Mason committed, the non-sanctioned 2015 class now stands at three commitments, with 22 spots remaining. Mason joins quarterbacks David Sills and Ricky Town, and is the second player behind Town to be snagged by Steve Sarkisian.
The 2015 class has gotten a lot of attention from Sarkisian’s staff and rightfully so, with California home to a number of high-end prospects and sanctions no longer restricting the Trojans’ roster moving forward, following this upcoming Wednesday’s Signing Day.
In addition to landing Mason’s commitment, USC offered a slew of elite juniors on Saturday, including six four-star prospects. For more on Junior Day, you can click here.
