Three-star cornerback Je’Quari Godfrey committed to the 2017 USC football recruiting class on Sunday, flipping his commitment away from Cal.
USC’s weekend of official visits yielded at least one positive result on Sunday, as former Cal commit Je’Quari Godfrey announced his commitment to the Trojans.
The three-star cornerback took to Twitter with a collage of photos from his visit declaring his switch.
“I would first like to send a huge thank you to the entire Cal football program. They have been amazing to my family and I throughout the entire recruiting process and my commitment,” Godfrey wrote. “Thank you for seeing my potential and believing so strongly in my talents, but I am announcing that I’m decommitting from Cal.
“I’m ready to be a Trojan and am now committed 100% to the University of Southern California.”
Godfrey is the No. 72 player in the state of California, per the 247Sports composite, and the No. 71 cornerback in the class.
