USC needs all the recruiting wins it can get. One Trojan target might be about to chcoose the Men of Troy. Class of 2025 linebacker Christian Thatcher is considered a four-star prospect according to 247Sports and On3. He is the No. 131 player in the 247Sports rankings for the 2025 class. The 6-foot-3, 210-pound outside linebacker from Las Vegas Arbor View High School has seen his recruitment take off over the last several weeks.
Thatcher totaled 133 tackles and 3 forced fumbles last season for Arbor View. He reminds me a lot of former USC linebacker Tackett Curtis, who recently transferred to Wisconsin.
“I think the most important thing for me and my parents is obviously I have to like the school,” Thatcher said. “Then it’s the relationship that I have with the coaching staff, whether it be, obviously the linebacker coach. I would say relationships are probably there somewhere, somebody that I trust, somebody that really wants me in their program, and feels that I can contribute and be a part of it.”
Thatcher has received a USC crystal ball projection from 247Sports. The Trojans hope that prediction stands up.
