Three-star offensive tackle Clayton Johnston of Servite in Anaheim put on the cardinal and gold visor at his noon commitment announcement Wednesday, giving Steve Sarkisian’s Trojans something to cheer about in the wake of missing out on another big recruit earlier this morning.
Naturally, Twitter was first to the scene with reactions, commentary and congratulations for the newest Trojan, who brings USC’s 2015 recruiting class up to nine players.

Now with Clayton Johnston, Roy Hemsley and No. 1 Chuma Edoga, #USC could have the best offensive line class in the country.

Say what you will about guys like Town, Daniel, and Smith. Tim Drevno has been delivering studs to USC with a thunderous silence.
