Dorton thinking about visits

USC 2014 commit Malik Dorton helped his Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco team to a win Friday night against Los Angeles (Calif.) Loyola. Dorton committed to the Trojans Aug. 23, are other official visits on the way?

Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco defensive end Malik Dorton announced his verbal commitment to USC just under a month ago and while the four-star recruit says he's still solid to the Trojans, he will most likely be taking other official visits.

Following Bosco's 24-7 win on Friday night over Loyola, Dorton told FOX Sports' SCPlaybook that Oklahoma and Arizona State are continuing to recruit him and that he wants to take visits to both schools "if [USC head coach Lane] Kiffin is okay with it."

Dorton says the Sooners continue to tell him they like the way he plays and that they want to show him "what they have to offer." ASU also continues to contact Dorton and want to get him on an official visit to Tempe (Ariz.)

Dorton attended his first ever USC game on Sept. 7 when the Trojans lost 10-7 to Washington State.

"It was a new experience for me," Dorton said. "I'd never been to a USC game besides that one."

It wasn't the best first impression for Dorton, who said he tried to ignore the USC fans who were booing and chanting to fire their head coach.

"I just kind of ignored it and tried to pay attention to what the coaches and players were doing," he explained, though admitted that it was "shocking" to hear the Trojan Family chanting to "Fire Kiffin".

"In a sense [it makes me worry]," Dorton said. "But then again, it doesn't. You look at last week and they bounced back against Boston College.

"The players say they believe in [Kiffin], so I believe them, so we'll see how it plays out," he said.

USC receivers coach Tee Martin and defensive line coach Ed Orgeron continue to remain in constant contact with Dorton.
