USC Adds Naivar, Baker. NEW HIRES

Months after losing his commitment, USC football has Jack Yary back in the fold.

The three-star tight end out of Murrieta made a second commitment to the Trojans on Monday night, eliminating Washington and landing right back where he began.

“I am committed to the University of Southern California,” Yary wrote on Twitter along with a picture of him at the Coliseum during his official visit. “Fight on!”

Yary’s ranking as a tight end varies greatly depending on what service you look at. The 247Sports composite rates him as a three-star, 447th in the county and 18th among tight ends.

The 247Sports independent ranking is much more generous. They have him as a four-star prospect at No. 250 and No. 10 among tight ends. ESPN also gave him the four-star nod as the No. 7 tight end in the country.

The discrepancy reflects Rivals significantly lower ranking as the No. 20 tight end available. They haven’t given him a national rating.

Whatever the recruiting services think of the 6-foot-6, 255-pound prospect, he’ll find a home at USC with big shoes to fill. He is the son of Trojan All-American and College Football Hall of Famer Ron Yary.

Unlike his father, Yary will suit up at tight end for USC with an eye on keeping the position in the limelight despite major schematic questions. The Trojans utilized a tight end in 2019 more often as a blocker than a pass catcher. Rather than a pass-catching tight end in the slot, OC Graham Harrell utilized a long receiver like Drake London. Yary could compete in that same spot in the long run.

Yary is USC’s 13th commit for the class of 2020 and the first since 12 players put pen to paper on Early Signing Day. His pledge moves USC up to No. 52 in national team recruiting rankings on 247Sports. The Trojans are 10th in the Pac-12.

Signing Day is approaching on Wednesday, which is when Yary can officially sign with the Trojans. It’s hard to say if he will be the only one to send in an LOI, or if more will follow.
