USC football flips Michigan State commit Jadyn Walker, adds a linebacker for 2024

The USC Trojans made some late-cycle gains in recruiting for the Class of 2024. The Trojans added pass rusher Ratumana Bulabalavu on Tuesday. Then, on signing day — Wednesday, February 7 — they landed a three-star linebacker from the state of Michigan. Jadyn Walker had previously committed to Michigan State, but the Trojans were able to flip him and bring him to Southern California.

Checking in at 6-3 and 210 pounds, Walker gives new USC linebacker coach Matt Entz a player he can work with from the ground up. It can’t be said often enough: Whereas previous (exciting) USC defensive prospects were coached by Alex Grinch, limiting their overall development, each new USC prospect brought into the program this year will be coached by an elite defensive staff. Player development should be miles better than it was before.

USC’s late-cycle defensive pickups in 2024 give the Trojans more depth to handle the rigors of the Big Ten. This was a very good 24 hours for the Trojans.

Here, below, are a few more notes on Jadyn Walker, the newest Trojan:
