Perhaps the best way to sneak a USC football commitment by the bulk of fans and pundits on Twitter, is to do it smack dab in the middle of World Cup match in which the U.S. Men’s National Team is playing Portugal with a chance to qualify for the knockout stage. And of course, that happened on Sunday afternoon, as four-star wide receiver De’Quan Hampton pledged to the Trojans.
Here’s perhaps out shortest batch of Twitter reaction and analysis to date, and you can blame soccer for that. (And that Cristiano Ronaldo guy.) Now…to the tweets!
Just got off the phone with new #USC commit De'Quan Hampton who tells me it "just felt like the right thing" to commit to the Trojans now.
