Lincoln Riley’s recruiting momentum at USC continues to build.
Another four-star commit joined the Trojans on Saturday. Edge rusher Braylan Shelby from Friendswood (Texas) High School picked USC, giving Riley another national recruiting win.
A few weeks ago, USC and Riley went into Louisiana and grabbed four-star linebacker Tackett Curtis. Now the Trojans have won a significant recruiting battle in Texas for an edge rusher. When one also notes that USC recent earned a commitment from four-star cornerback Maliki Crawford, the math becomes clear and very encouraging for USC: The Trojans have added a four-star player at each level of their defense over the past month: defensive line, linebacker, and secondary.

The culture feeling when it comes to SC and how they’re going to change the program around.” Story here: https://t.co/BJCj6ld2K9 pic.twitter.com/8nhXBJ66Pw

We’re still early in this recruiting cycle, too.
Success is its own selling point. Lincoln Riley has a lot more success to sell to future recruits after his recent string of recruiting wins.
The next step: Score wins on the football field this fall.
