Four-star defensive tackle Keyshon Camp of Lakeland, Fla. de-committed from the 2016 USC recruiting class on Saturday afternoon.
Camp, the 264th ranked player in the 247Sports Composite, announced the news via Twitter, while on an official visit to the University of Pittsburgh.
“We feel it would be best I decomitt (sic) from USC an (sic) I will make my decision on National Signing Day,” Camp posted on Twitter.
For now, the leaders in the clubhouse for the big Florida lineman appears to be Jim Harbaugh’s Michigan Wolverines. They have a 50 percent likelihood of landing Camp, per the 247Sports Crystal Ball predictions.
Camp is an intriguing loss for USC, given that the bulk of the targets remaining on the board are defensive linemen.
That list includes the likes of two-way star Devin Asiasi, junior college defensive end Jonathan Kongbo, defensive tackle Boss Tagaloa and Utah linemen Maxs Tupai and Leki Fotu.

Should Helton and company haul in a few of those names, the loss of Camp can be weathered. If not, the numbers up front could be tricky given that the Trojans lost five senior linemen at the end of the season.SEE ALSO: Tracking USC’s 2016 Commitments
With Camp out, the Trojans are back at 13 commitments with seven scholarships remaining, just like they were on Saturday morning. Velus Jones re-committed to USC in the afternoon, after posting on Twitter that we was flipping his allegiance to Oklahoma on Friday.
Needless to say, the stretch run of the recruiting season is only going to continue to be fluid. There are 11 days until Signing Day, which takes place on Wednesday, February 3rd this year.
