Rector reports on visit

Loyola defensive end Christian Rector spent the weekend hanging out with nine other USC commits on official visits, but he also spent time with four-star safety Marvell Tell, four-star cornerback Ykili Ross and four-star running back Aca'Cedric Ware who were on campus for unofficial visits.

Three-star defensive end/outside linebacker Christian Rector knew what to expect from USC when he took his official visit this week.

"I already visited the school. I already know everything about it," Rector said. "So it was mostly just have fun with my future teammates and get to know them."

That's exactly what the Los Angeles (Calif.) Loyola prospect did thanks to the addition of a couple of unofficial visitors.

Nearly the entire committed 2015 class ended up on campus this weekend. According to Rector, along with the 10 committed official visitors, Ykili Ross and Marvel Tell stopped in to hang out with their future Trojan teammates that were on campus for USC's big recruiting weekend.

"Everybody came down," Rector said. "I think we really bonded and we got to see what Coach [Steve] Sark[isian] was really talking about -- talking about a family and coming together and just how lucky we are to have this experience together. Every player that went this weekend got a lot out of it."

Rector was hosted by redshirt sophomore offensive lineman Jordan Simmons but said he spent a lot of time with defensive line recruits Noah Jefferson and Jacob Daniel as well as defensive backs Isaiah Langley and Tell.

In line with the rest of the weekend, Rector said his favorite part of the weekend was a Friday night team party because of the opportunity the players got to come together and bond outside of the football field and off campus.

After the official visit, Rector feels like the class is really coming together well and the USC coaches have a chance to finish strong.

"We've jumped a couple of spots nationally [in the last two weeks]. We're still the No. 1 in the Pac-12. I think this class is going to exceed every expectation of what SC can be." Top Stories
