Trojan commit George Farmer, one of the most talented players in the 2011 class, took an official visit to USC last weekend with his family and came away excited with what the future holds.

"I've been down to USC plenty of times but it's just a great time to get to know the coaches, hang out with the players and have a good time and see what the future's going to be like," Farmer said.

Being on campus with several other top recruits was a special experience for Farmer, who is excited to be a part of all the young talent that will arrive in the fall.

"It just goes to show that we are going to be a good team for time to come because Robert's (Woods) class is good, and our class coming in is good," Farmer said. "We are ready to dominate and take over some national championships."

Farmer has done all he can to make sure that the current class gets even down the stretch.

"I was at the Army game recruiting, and recruiting on the trip, and I just made L.A. seem like the best place to be," he said. "I added in all the positives.

"All the recruits bonded well. We got a couple guys that are from out of state but all of us bonded really well and we just had a fun, great time. It was just awesome the whole time."

The five-star wide receiver from Serra High School, who committed to USC in December, was thoroughly impressed with the academic presentation on the visit.

"Seeing the education side really opened me up to USC and what an advantage they have over other schools, just to go as far as you can in academics and you go to football, that's another advantage," said Farmer, who was hosted by former teammate Robert Woods. "I guess that's why SC is the best fit for me.

"They put together a well-organized plan when we went on our trip about academics and my family really loved it. You know, USC is a prolific school. You get a degree from there and you're set."

Farmer is finishing up the recruiting process with a trip to Miami this weekend.

"I was going to take my trip down there and since the coach got fired they stopped all the recruiting trips so it didn't really give me a chance to see what the school is like," he said.

The Canes new coaching staff includes a former USC assistant that is very familiar with Farmer's talents.

"I was very connected with Brennan Carroll," Farmer said. "He actually brought me out there when I first started at the SC camp, and he was coaching me through a lot of things, him and his dad, Pete Carroll, so I'm already connected with Brennan Carroll."
