Jesse Scroggins commits to USC

Jesse Scroggins commits to USC

There has been a lot of speculation the past few weeks that Lakewood quarterback Jesse Scroggins would commit to USC and today, after the conclusion of the Elite 11 Camp, Scroggins did announce his commitment to the Trojans.

It wasn't exactly a secret Scroggins would commit to USC after his teammate, Dion Bailey, verbally committed to USC last week in Eugene, OR, but there's always some doubt until an announcement is made. Even after an announcement, there's always some doubt until a letter of intent is signed.

What ultimately led Scroggins to commit to USC was the pro-style offense, the Trojans run and the proximity to home and the fact that Dion Bailey committed to USC.

"I committed to USC," said Scroggins. "I like a pro-style offense and that's what USC runs. My interest in USC was always very high because it's close to home and only 20 minutes up the road. Also, USC has a great tradition and everything about USC is awesome."
