USC football made the cut for four-star cornerback Jalyn Armour-Davis, who named the Trojans in his Top 6 schools on Tuesday.
Jalyn Armour-Davis out of Mobile, Alabama trimmed his list to six early Tuesday morning and USC football can take pride in being the only non-SEC country school still on his radar.
The four-star cornerback listed the Trojans in his Top 6 on Twitter, along with Auburn, Georgia, Florida State, Florida and LSU.
Hailing from St. Paul’s Episcopal High School, Armour-Davis is the second-best player out of Alabama in this cycle. So it’s no surprise that Auburn are the favorites to ultimately receive his signature.
Still, USC has a foot in the door at least in recruiting the No. 13 cornerback and No. 95 player in the class, per the 247Sports composite.
Standing 6-foot, 160 pounds, Armour-Davis boasts the length the Trojans have targeted with their recent cornerback pursuits.

USC already has a commitment from four-star cornerback Marcus Johnson out of Hawkins High School. The Trojans also recently made the Top 10 for fellow four-star prospect D’Shawn Jamison from Houston, Texas.
With Johnson’s brother, Greg, joining USC’s 2017 class along with three-star CB Je’Quari Godfrey, USC isn’t in desperate need of corners, but they’ll definitely be looking to keep the cupboard full. Jonathan Lockett will be graduating after the 2017 season while Iman Marshall is expected to leave for the NFL. The likes of Jack Jones, Ajene Harris and Isaiah Langley could also be on their way out after 2018.
In addition to Johnson, next year’s class already features commitments from five-star quarterback Matt Corral, five-star linebacker Palaie Gaoteote and four-star linebackers Raymond Scott and Bo Calvert.
