Kessler Enjoys USC Visit

The Bakersfield Centennial quarterback will be in the mix to become Matt Barkley's backup next season, battling with freshman Jesse Scroggins and Max Wittek of Mater Dei this spring for the right to be one play away from significant action.

Cody Kessler is more than ready to be on the firing line.

The Bakersfield Centennial quarterback will be in the mix to become Matt Barkley's backup next season, battling with freshman Jesse Scroggins and Max Wittek of Mater Dei this spring for the right to be one play away from significant action.

"It's going to be awesome," Kessler said. "I can't wait to get there. What a great opportunity to come in there and have that spot wide open."

And while Kessler is excited for that competition, his official visit to USC this past weekend was more about the opportunity to connect with future teammates than preparing to enroll next month.

"This was a chance to have fun, hang out with the other players and meet some of the recruits I hadn't met before. It was more like a relaxed thing," Kessler said.

Kessler and Wittek didn't spend much time together – Wittek left Saturday morning as Kessler was starting his trip – but the two know one another from this summer's Rising Stars camp.

Hosted by freshman receiver Robert Woods, Kessler was pleased with the Trojans' strong recruiting haul over the weekend, including Woods' high school teammate, Gardena Serra receiver George Farmer.

However, there's one prospect Kessler is giving the full-court press, Beverly Hills defensive end Greg Townsend Jr.

"I'm really on Greg right now because I played travel (basketball) with him ever since like seventh grade," Kessler said.
