Recruiting is starting to hit on all cylinders for USC’s head football coach Steve Sarkisian. The Trojans got their second commitment of the week on Thursday morning, as three-star strongside defensive end Noah Jefferson announced his verbal commitment to the Trojans over some buzz without an offer from the Alabama Crimson Tide.

Jefferson, a Las Vegas product from Liberty High School, was just offered by USC last week. Currently, the Trojans are just one of three schools that have a scholarship offer out for him, with Arizona State and San Diego State being the other two.
At 6-foot-5, 285 pounds, Jefferson is a big bodied defensive end that can play on the interior at tackle, in addition to being athletic enough to dabble on the offensive side of the ball.
Now that Jefferson is on board, the Trojans now have seven commitments in their class of 2015, four which being linemen. With Rivals average star rating of 3.86, Steve Sarkisian’s first class currently ranks second nationally behind Alabama, solely on average.
Of USC’s allotted 25 scholarships, 18 now remain for Sarkisian to fill before Signing Day.
