Donte Williams is a relentless recruiting force for USC football.
USC football hasn’t always made the best hiring decisions, but the first year with Donte Williams as cornerbacks coach has been a resounding success.
Nowhere is it more clear Williams is an absolute gem of an addition for the Trojans than on the recruiting trail.
On Monday, Williams worked his magic again by picking up a commitment from Fabian Ross, a four-star cornerback from Bishop Gorman.
Ross is Williams’ first pickup for the class of 2022 and chances are he won’t be his last.
USC football should celebrate Donte Williams
Fans may not be particularly pleased with the head coach, but there can be no complaints about the recruiting energy brought by Williams since he joined the program.
Williams has been a one-man recruiting army, winning players over with his genuine approach and relentlessness.
He talks a lot about USC’s mantra of “Take Back The West” but he does more than talk the talk. He walks the walk on the recruiting trail.
Here’s how he celebrated Ross’ commitment.
Williams used a gif of dominos falling and he’s got every right to do so. He’s hit on target after target, building up momentum on the recruiting trail that seems to propel itself forward.
The next targets have already noticed.
Domani Jackson will be his toughest challenge going forward. The Mater Dei star is the No. 3 player in the class of 2022. Right now, Ohio State has the edge in his recruitment, per the 247Sports Crystal Ball. Don’t count the Trojans out though.
Jackson took notice when Ross announced his commitment.
As a local prospect, Jackson will be able to see first hand what Williams is about.
The CBs coach managed to get the win with Korey Foreman, 2021’s top prospect. It should be fun to watch him work again this year.
