Raymond Scott, four-star Narbonne linebacker, committed to USC football Friday afternoon, bringing the Trojans’ 2018 class to three.
Four-star linebacker Raymond Scott has committed to USC football for 2018, according to 247Sports.
“I would like to thank all schools and coaches who have been recruiting me, but after talking with my family and coaches I have decided to further my education and football career as a Trojan at the University of Southern California,” Scott wrote on Twitter.
Scott helped Narbonne to the California 1-A State Championship as a sophomore in 2015, racking up 140 tackles and six sacks en route to selection as a MaxPreps First Team Sophomore All-American. He enters his junior season as the No. 2 outside linebacker for 2018 and the No. 5 player in the state per 247Sports’ recruit rankings.
Should his commitment hold up, Scott will join Uchenna Nwosu as a recent addition to the Trojan family from Narbonne’s ranks.
USC’s 2018 class is now the size of the Trojans 2017 class, with three total commits.
Earlier this week USC landed Oaks Christian linebacker Bo Calvert while his teammate Matt Corrall, a five-star quarterback, has been committed since February.

Though Calvert is not yet rated by recruiting services, he is expected to be a high-level recruit. With Scott, Corrall and Calvert in the fold, USC has a strong foundation to work with as the 2018 class takes shape over the next two years.
The class of 2017, meanwhile, was shaken up by the de-commitment of cornerback Thomas Graham on Tuesday, leaving the Trojans with pledges from four-star running back Stephen Carr, four-star safety Bubba Bolden and three-star receiver Marlon Williams.
Though still early in the process, the race to next year’s Signing Day has begun with the new Trojans coaching staff biding their time on the recruiting trail.
