Town talks Trojans

Ricky Town is an ace recruiter for the Trojans in the class of 2015.

Ventura (Calif.) St. Bonaventure five-star quarterback Ricky Town has the first two games of his senior season under his belt. On Friday, the Seraphs hammered Cabrillo 42-0 led by the USC QB commit.

“I think we played pretty well," Town said after the game. "I mean you can see from the scoreboard. But we still made some mistakes and we can always play better."

Town will be an early January enrollee in order to be eligible to participate in spring football.

“I’ve watched other quarterbacks enroll early and it has worked out well," Town said. “I want to get a jump on learning the offense, so that helped the decision.”

Jacksonville (Fla.) First Coast wide receiver and fellow USC commit Tristan Payton met Town at the Rising Stars Camp over the summer.

“I am so excited," Town said. "Like you said we met at the Rising Stars Camp and he was committed to Florida, and I said come on man you gotta be a Trojan and he told me he wanted to. So we kept talking and he’s one of my best friends right now, and I can’t wait.”

After originally committing to Alabama, Town switched his commitment to USC back in January.

“You know there were a lot of different things," he said. "I thought Alabama was great, but with the coaching changes and stuff and Sarkisian coming in, I started seeing more love. He invited me to a campus tour, so I went there and I didn’t really know what USC was and I fell in love with it as soon as I stepped on campus. And after talking to Coach Sark and meeting with the other coaches and their offense and the campus, I told my parents I’m gonna be a Trojan.”

Town was very impressed with how the Trojan offense looked in week one against Fresno State.

“I think they played great," he said. "They had like 700 something yards on offense, which I think is awesome- it’s kinda unreal. Not only that, but they had like 5 freshmen starting, which is really big. I think the offense looks great, and I think the whole team did too.”

After he finishes up his high school football career, Town is excited for the next chapter in his life.

“I mean it’s USC! I don’t know, just that whole Trojan family vibe, I mean I’m already starting to see it so I’m excited to just be a part of that.”
