Holiday discusses recruiting at USC

San Marcos (Calif.) Mission Hills four-star cornerback DeChaun Holiday talks USC recruiting and the school across town.

San Marcos (Calif.) Mission Hills four-star cornerback Dechaun Holiday has more offers than fingers on his hands.

"I just got A&M recently and Texas Tech, Florida and Oregon and all them," said Holiday. "It's going good."

To recap, Holiday boasts offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Boise State, Boston College, California, Colorado, Colorado State, Florida State, Mississippi State, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Oregon, Oregon State, San Diego State, San Jose State, Tennessee, Texas A&M, UCLA, USC, Utah, Vanderbilt, Washington and Washington State.

Narrowing in on the Trojans, Holiday says he's been happy with his recruitment at USC.

"It's going pretty good," said Holiday. "I like Coach Sark and Coach Heyward. I knew them from Washington when I had an offer and now I have one from USC."

Holiday went on to say that he really appreciates the defensive schemes that defensive backs coach Keith Heyward implements on the field.

"From what I saw at Washington, I like how he uses his corners and man technique as well as zone," said Holiday.

Although Holiday isn't committing to any one school just yet, he did say the Trojans' crosstown rival UCLA is starting to stick out.

"I want to go on visits before I decide," said Holiday. "But UCLA has really been sticking out because of the consistency of Coach Mora always reaching out to me."

Holiday says he is starting to plan visits and will "probably take unofficials to Oklahoma, Oregon, Boise, Florida State if [he] can and a few others, maybe Tennessee."

At 6-foot-2, 198 lbs. Holiday says he "doesn't need to grow anymore," and is just focused on keeping his weight and "getting out of the breaks quicker and working on a couple more offenses as well."
