USC lands top national recruit in DE Foreman

In its bid to reach past glory, Southern California received a commitment Saturday from the top prep recruit, landing defensive end Korey Foreman from nearby Corona Centennial High School.

The No. 1 ranked player by the 247Sports composite had previously committed to Clemson in January, but later announced that he still was exploring other options. The 6-foot-4, 265-pounder also considered Georgia, LSU and Arizona State.

USC has not landed the overall top recruit since 2009 when quarterback Matt Barkley selected the Trojans. Last year’s No. 2 overall prospect, quarterback Bryce Young, initially committed to USC before signing with Alabama.

Foreman, known for his speed and pass-rushing abilities, announced his decision during NBC’s 2021 All-American Bowl: Declaration Day special. The All-American Bowl is not being played this year because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

The arrival of Foreman gives a boost to head coach Clay Helton, who is 45-23 in seven seasons with the Trojans. USC, which finished 5-1 this past season, losing to Oregon in the Pac-12 championship game, had the No. 64 recruiting class last year.
