Hightower makes surprise workout appearance at USC Rising Stars Camp

Four-star wide receiver and Miami pledge Brian Hightower worked out at USC on Sunday and looked good during one-on-one drills.

This one might not go anywhere at all but the question needs to be raised: If Hightower is a solid pledge to Miami, why work out at USC?

There have been ongoing rumors that Hightower would be interested in returning to California for college – he transferred from Calabasas, Calif., to Bradenton (Fla.) IMG Academy for his junior and senior seasons – and if the Trojans put the full-court press on him then things might get interesting.

Hightower seems content with the Canes. But he was at USC on Sunday and that raises eyebrows for a few reasons at least.

CANESPORT'S TAKE: We have always considered Hightower a solid Miami commit and that has not changed. However, whenever a commit is convinced to attend another school's camp, and work out for coaches, it merits attention.
