Five days after receiving an offer from USC, cornerback Torin Harris decided to pull the trigger and set his sights on the Trojans. The 6'1/2" 175 cornerback from Palo Verde High (Las Vegas) is happy to become a Trojan. The Scout.com 3-star prospect is the #31 cornerback in the country. In high school the talented Harris plays cornerback and running back. In his junior season (2007), Harris had 35 tackles and returned 3 kicks for touchdowns.

Clay de Leon caught up with Harris to discuss his commitment.

How did the commitment transpire?

"I feel great! They offered me on Saturday after the Skills Camp. I called Coach Carroll on Thursday and spoke about the team and I told him I wanted to be a Trojan. I accepted the scholarship. I also spoke with Coach Seto and Coach Holt."

"Coach Holt recruited me. They recruited me as a cornerback."

Are you returning for the Rising Stars Camp next week?

No.

So what are your plans for the rest of the summer?

I'm staying in (Las) Vegas with my team and we are going to prepare for the upcoming season.

What are your goals for the year now that you know you will be a Trojan?

Just to prepare my body, so I can prevent injuries as much as possible.

How are you doing academically?

I had a 3.125 last semester and I took the SAT recently (on June 4th). I'm waiting for the results.

How did you become a Trojan?

I grew up watching USC. My dad was a big Trojan fan. I'm from Pasadena, CA, so I was always around USC football, I always liked it. We moved to Las Vegas when I was a freshman.

Are you going to take an official visit to USC?

I'm not sure yet, I'm going to talk to the coach (Pete Carroll) and see what they think about it.
