Five-star running back Justin Davis (6-1, 197) has been playing for the Stockton (Calif.) Lincoln Trojans for his high school career.

Davis has liked it so much, that he plans to be a Trojan for another few years in college.

"No surprise, I'm committed to the University of Southern California." said Davis.

The West's top running back picked the Trojans on Thursday evening, giving USC their second five-star running back this week.

"The synergy of the academics and athletics is like no other," said Davis.

On Tuesday, the top-ranked running back, Ty Isaac, pledged to the Trojans and on Thursday, Davis, ranked #3 nationally by Scout.com, joined him in committing to USC.

The Trojan coaching staff also left a big impression on him.

"The dedication of the coaches to assist me in all areas of life, education and football probably stood out most to me," said Davis.

Davis had offers from all over the country, but the one from USC, which he got when he attended their Junior Day in February, long stuck with him.

"Man, USC, it was something else," said Davis after an unofficial visit to USC. "It made me feel at home. They did it right. I got to talk with the coaches a little more, and it got to be a little more personal than Junior Day and I just got more personal with the coaches. I also talked with Matt Barkley some too.  The campus was really nice and they're building an amazing new athletic center."

With the commitment from Davis, the Trojans now have four five-star prospects, and gives the Trojans the top quarterback (Max Browne) and running back (Davis) in the West.

This weekend, the U.S. Army All-American will be at the Oakland Nike Football Training Camp.

As a 2011 junior at Lincoln, Davis rushed for 2,613 yards and 39 touchdowns.
