USC football fans should keep their eye on some key Early Signing Day prospects

The strangest year in memory is now forcing USC football to prepare for the Pac-12 title game while simultaneously juggling the Early Signing Day.

Who should USC fans know going into Wednesday?

We’ve got some players to look out for:

What’s the deal with Korey Foreman?

The most coveted recruit in the country is planning to sign on Wednesday, but Korey Foreman isn’t planning to tell people his decision just yet. The No. 1 player in the class of 2021 is holding off on an announcement until Jan. 2.

The question is whether news of Foreman’s plan manages to leak before the new year.

The class of 2019 had a situation like this with Bru McCoy signing before a January announcement. Back then, the simple math with one unaccounted for signee made it pretty clear that USC had landed the big fish. Will there be a similar clue this time?

Foreman tweeted “I will not let anyone know my decision until after it is made public.” We’ll find out how good schools are at keeping the secret this week.

Foreman is choosing between USC, Clemson, Georgia, LSU and Arizona State. The five-star defensive end was committed to Clemson at one point, but he decommitted earlier this year to reconsider his options.

The Trojans have the hometown advantage and former teammate Drake Jackson working to draw him in. Will it be enough?
