Westbrook Talks USC Offer

The 6-5, 300-pound lineman already has offers from schools like UCLA, Colorado and Washington, and was thrilled by the recent offer from the Trojans.

It has been an exciting week for Compton (CA) Dominguez offensive lineman Lacy Westbrook, who received an offer from the USC Trojans.

"My head coach told me to give Coach Cregg a call," Westbrook explained. "I called him and he told me that he watched a lot of game film on me, and that the coaching staff had been watching a lot of film, and he said that he likes my athleticism, my quick feet and my agility and that I have an offer on the line."

The 6-5, 300-pound lineman already has offers from schools like UCLA, Colorado and Washington, and was thrilled by the recent offer from the Trojans.

"It really feels great," he said. "I actually grew up watching USC football on television and it really is a great experience and great honor to receive a scholarship from a team that I grew up watching."

Westbrook has a good combination of size and athleticism for a young offensive lineman. He currently plays offensive tackle for the Dons but has the versatility to play either tackle or guard on the college level.

‘I have quick feet. I have good agility for my size and good speed," he said. "My agility is really the key factor for my position."

Westbrook, along with roughly 130 other recruits, made the trip to USC for Junior Day on Saturday, and he took the opportunity to get a detailed look at the football program.

"This was actually my first time ever having a tour or being at USC so it was a really good experience," he said. "They have a really good coaching staff. They know the game of football inside and out, the different position coaches."

The talented big man also got a chance to talk with offensive line coach James Cregg.

"Coach Cregg showed us a bunch of stuff for our position, what to do in different situations and stuff," Westbrook said. "Overall, it was a really good experience."

Westbrook said he wants to really evaluate his options before announcing his top schools. He is looking for a school with strong academics, as well as a good football program.

"I need to research schools and take visits this way I can honestly have a top three or top five. With the schools looking at me more, and the offers coming in, I really can't honestly make a good decision at this point because I really don't know too much about the schools.

"I really want to major in Sports Medicine. Really just a school that can help me excel in academics with tutors, technology, the library, and other resources that help me pursue a degree in Sports Medicine, a good community."

Westbrook plans to attend USC's Linemen Camp later this year.
