Steve Dillon, a 6-3, 265-pound defensive lineman from Palmdale (Calif.) High, has signed a letter of intent with the USC football team, Trojan head coach Lane Kiffin announced today (March 16).
Dillon becomes the 31st member of USC's 2011 football recruiting class, a group that some experts ranked among the best in the nation. Eight of those signees already have enrolled at USC for the current spring semester and will participate in spring practice, which begins on March 22.
