Stringfellow Pulls in USC Offer

Moreno Valley (Calif.) Rancho Verde receiver Demorea Stringfellow picked up an offer from the Trojans this week. The four-star receiver had a feeling the call would come.

Until the final minutes, Tuesday seemed like just another ordinary spring practice for Moreno Valley (Calif.) Rancho Verde receiver Demorea Stringfellow.

That's when Rancho Verde head coach Pete Duffy approached him and Stringfellow knew, good news was on the tip his tongue.

"I was excited," said the four-star receiver. "I thought they (USC) would call and make a late offer. They have to pick wisely."

Stringfellow is right. With a limited number of scholarships, the Trojans do have to pick wisely.

And he was one of their picks.

"It means a lot to me," he explained. "It tells me that I'm pretty good and that they like me a lot."

Stringfellow knows he likes the Trojans a lot, too.

Though he has yet to set an official top five schools, he knows USC will be one of them.

"It's just one of those schools, if you're naming a top five in college football, you have to name USC," he explained. "It's a program that has been around forever and they've been good for forever."

Stringfellow plans to take an unofficial to USC some time this week to talk to Trojans head coach Lane Kiffin about where he would fit in to the Trojans program.

In the meantime, Stringfellow says he will continue to improve his game during spring practice at Rancho Verde.

He knows his strengths, mostly the physical nature of his game.

"A lot of corners and safeties have a hard time getting me down, and I'm a great blocker," said Stringfellow, adding that he feels he needs to work to improve his speed and separation.

Stringfellow is going to wait to make a commitment until he has taken his official visits.

"I need to do my research on the schools," he explained. "Make sure they have majors, programs, (I want) stuff like that."
